Do your doctors take my insurance?

No. Insurance companies currently do not cover medical marijuana; therefore none of our in-network doctors accept insurance. However, our new MyDoc Recommendation program helps you visit your own primary care physician for a medical marijuana recommendation, which means you will most likely be able to use your insurance for that visit.

Where can I find information about the new SB 423?

The DPHHS has helpful FAQs here: http://www.dphhs.mt.gov/medicalmarijuana/mmp-faq.pdf

I heard SB 423 is being challenged and may not be implemented into law. Is this true?

MTCIA has filed an injunction that will be heard on June 20-21, if this passes, they will then have some time to collect the signatures needed to overturn SB 423. But in the meantime, the rules of SB 423 apply. This is a sensitive subject that is changing rapidly, and we will keep you posted with any new developments. UPDATE: on June 30, 2011 the Montana courts put a temporary injunction on many elements of the bill. The MTCIA is currently working on getting enough signatures to ban the bill entirely.
