No. The cost is $0.00 if you do not qualify for a card. Again, you will not pay anything if you do not qualify.

Q: Who can find out that I have a medical marijuana card?

Absolutely no one! The State keeps a database that can only be accessed with your 20 digit patient I.D. number that is located on your card. The system can't be accessed with a patient's name. It is not possible to look up a patients name to see if you participate in program. That includes law enforcement and employers.

No. Currently insurance providers do not cover the cost of evaluations for medicinal marijuana use. This includes all private insurers and A.C.C.E.S.S., S.S.I., Medicaid, and Medicare.

It is important to bring any medical documentation (from previous physician visits, chiropractor visits, etc.) that supports your diagnosis or condition. This includes: recent medical records, clinical or progress notes, MRI narratives, physician's letter, chiropractor's letter, or any other documentation that you think will help.

Q: What else will I need to bring?

The state requires a valid picture form of identification. You will need one of the following: Arizona driver's license, Arizona State Identification card, or valid U.S. Passport.

Q: How do I obtain my medical records?

Call your doctor's office, physician or practitioner that treated you and tell them you want copies of your medical records. Ask them what their procedure is to release your records. They legally have to release your records to you and you do not have to disclose why you need them. They will tell you the process and typically have a release form to sign. You can always call our office and we'll happily assist you in retrieving your records.

Q: Can I qualify if my condition is not documented or I have not seen a doctor in the last year?

Yes. Please call us to discuss what options are available if you do not have current medical records.

There are several websites that will help you locate dispensaries and provide product and pricing information. We are happy to answer any questions you may have about where and how to obtain medicine.

Medical Marijuana Dispensary Locator Map

The Arizona Medical Marijuana Act required the Arizona Department of Health Services to set up a Medical Marijuana program that included a dispensary system to distribute and sell medical marijuana to qualified patients and designated caregivers when it was passed by Arizona voters in November, 2010.

In August of 2012, The Department of Health Services held a lottery, and dispensary licenses were awarded randomly to qualified applicants. At that time, there were 97 Medical Marijuana dispensary licenses awarded. In December of 2012, the first state licensed Medical Marijuana dispensary in Arizona opened for business in Glendale. Today there are many medical marijuana dispensaries operating across the State.

We believe the dispensaries will provide safe, professional, and convenient access to medical marijuana for patients throughout Arizona. There are currently eight dispensaries in Maricopa County alone. The cities of Glendale, Phoenix, Goodyear, Surprise, Tempe, Wickenburg, Sedona, and Flagstaff each have state licensed medical marijuana dispensaries open for business. They provide quality, medical-grade cannabis products in a secure and professional environment to certified patients.

Valley Evaluation Centers would like to say thank you and cheers to the employees, team members, partners, owners, and everyone involved in the process of helping to get the doors open for each medical marijuana dispensary.
