No, unfortunately, medical marijuana is not covered in Maryland. The concept of insurance covering the costs of obtaining your Maryland medical cannabis card makes perfect sense. After all, you must register with the state as a patient. To obtain medical cannabis, you must visit a certified provider. The primary reason that insurance will not cover medical marijuana is that it is still illegal under federal law. In fact, it is more than permissible. Medical marijuana is still classified as a Schedule 1 drug by the federal government.

According to the DEAMarijuana is classified as a Schedule I drug, substance, or chemical because it has no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse. This means that insurance companies, particularly government-sponsored health-care programs such as Medicare and Medicaid, will not cover medical marijuana.

Can I get my Maryland marijuana card online?

Telemedicine is currently permitted in Maryland under certain conditions. In particular, a certifying provider may issue or renew a written certification via telemed only if the certifying provider:

  1. Goes over the patient’s medical records

  2. Conducts a thorough examination of the patient’s medical history and current medical condition.

  3. Keeps records of the patient’s condition in accordance with medically accepted standards.

  4. Determines that the qualifying patient meets the certifying provider’s inclusion criteria but not the certifying provider’s exclusion criteria. The potential benefits of medical cannabis use outweigh the patient’s health risks.

The health care provider will perform a clinical evaluation appropriate for the patient and the condition with which the patient presents before providing treatment via telemedicine. Email, SMS or text message, or fax are not acceptable methods of communication for this evaluation.

Before providing a diagnosis or treatment, all health care practitioners who provide telemedicine services must first establish a physician-patient relationship with the patient. Telemedicine, on the other hand, may be used to fulfill both this requirement and the requirement for an in-person examination.
