Yes. Telehealth (formerly Telemedicine) is a legal medical management tool and not a separate form of medicine diagnosis. Telehealth technology is perfectly legal provided that it is used by a licensed physician in the respective state that the patient is accepted.
Our doctors are available around the clock. You are able to book an instant consultation, or also a date in the near future.
Anyone who is over the age of 18 years old, that believes that it will help alleviate their pain or sickness is eligible for an evaluation and approval.
To get your recommendation you have to sign up and register on www.veriheal.com and complete a brief online profile. Upon registering for our service, clients are required to undergo an examination of pre-existing medical conditions by one of our team’s physicians. You will meet with a physician for 15 minutes and will be approved. Based on qualifying conditions, our physicians will make a recommendation for Medical Cannabis. Afterward, you will receive a formal doctor’s recommendation.
A medical cannabis recommendation is a document that states that a specific person has a medical condition in which a doctor recommends that they procure medicine to help treat it. Once written by the doctor, that patient can go directly to the dispensary for their medicine or some states ask the patient to register with the state first, then go to the dispensary for their medicine.
No, insurance does not cover MMJ visits at this time. Our fingers are crossed that does someday soon.
The process is generally the same as when you first got your card – but things will go a little faster. Just book another consultation with one of our doctors and we’ll get your certification renewed.
A doctor’s recommendation is a document that allows patients to use marijuana legally. A Medical Marijuana ID card itself is an ID needed to purchase cannabis IF the state mandates one. Many states only require a recommendation.
Many conditions could qualify you for medical cannabis. There is a broad range of symptoms that qualify, and it’s important to read your respective state’s page on our site to see what conditions are approved in your state.

No. Some people who qualify for medical recommendations sometimes choose not to pursue treatment because they fear there might be repercussions and they might end up on some sort of a “master list” of marijuana users. Please be informed that there is NO SUCH LIST that exists. There is no consolidated database that the DEA uses to conduct raids or employers can access during background checks.
As in any doctor’s practice, the record of your evaluation is protected and private under federal laws through the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Further, by Law, doctor-patient confidentiality prohibits the police, DMV, and employers from accessing your medical records without your written permission or consent.
We accept all major Credit/Debit cards. We do not accept cash payments or medical insurance.
The cost of your recommendation is $199. The price includes everything you need for your recommendation: Your Appointment Booking, Physician Consultation Fee, and your Doctor Recommendation. There are no additional fees or taxes.
