How Much Does the Michigan Medical Marijuana Card Cost?

The Michigan Cannabis Regulatory Agency (CRA) runs the state’s medical marijuana program and is responsible for registering new patients and caregivers to the program. The Agency also renews registration in the Michigan Medical Marijuana Program (MMMP) and issues MMJ cards to patients and caregivers. Only patients submit medical cannabis registry applications in Michigan. In their applications, patients may designate caregivers. The CRA issues medical cannabis cards to patients and caregivers.

Cost of Physician Consultation

Michigan requires patients to provide completed and signed physician certification forms when submitting their applications. This means that a patient must obtain a medical marijuana recommendation from their medical provider before joining the state’s MMMP. Michigan only accepts medical marijuana certifications issued by:

  • Medical Doctors (MDs)
  • Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine and Surgery (DOs), and
  • Expedited Medical Compacts (EMCs)

These healthcare providers must be registered to practice in Michigan to sign physician certifications for patients. A patient would need to schedule an appointment with such a physician. During this consultation, the physician would conduct a physical examination, confirm that the patient was diagnosed with a qualifying medical condition, and review the patient’s medical history to determine whether they would benefit from medical cannabis use. The cost of such physician consultation varies from practice to practice, but patients may expect to pay $100 - $350.

Michigan Medical Marijuana Card Fee

The CRA charges a $40 application fee for patients joining the MMMP. This fee covers the cost of a MMJ card and is the same whether the patient designates a caregiver or not. Therefore, the $40 fee covers the total cost of patient and caregiver medical cannabis cards for applicants designating caregivers. The cost of renewing a medical marijuana registration and card in Michigan is also $40.
