Medical Marijuana can be used in New York for multiple medical conditions. At FirstCare Medical Center we prescribe medical marijuana and provide the paperwork for patients to receive a New York State Certification to obtain Medical Marijuana.
We accept most medical insurance plans at our office to obtain a certification. Please call us to be sure we take your insurance. If you do not have insurance the cost is $170.00 for new patients and $125.00 for existing patients.
