At AHN, we want to ensure our patients receive the highest quality of care. We realize some patients may benefit from use of medical marijuana when conventional therapy does not provide relief. We will assist qualifying patients in obtaining medical marijuana based on guidelines and policies established at AHN.
To participate in the program, you must be under the ongoing care of a doctor who is approved to certify patients for medical marijuana use. AHN has specialized physicians who have received training and are registered with the state to certify patients under the regulations set by the Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Program.
According to Pennsylvania law, you must have one of these “Serious Medical Conditions” to qualify for the Medical Marijuana Program:
If you have a “Serious Medical Condition” listed above and you think you may qualify for the Medical Marijuana Program, call (412) DOCTORS (412) 362-8677.
A customer service representative will assist with making a connection with an AHN nurse navigator who will walk you through the process. The nurse will ask some questions and review your health information. If you qualify for the program, you and the nurse will work together to determine the next steps for obtaining a medical marijuana certification. The navigator will help schedule your initial appointment with a certifying physician. Prior to your first appointment, you will be asked to register at the Pennsylvania Department of Health website.
Please note that medical marijuana treatment is not covered by insurance, regardless of the company.
