*As of January 2017, all patients *MUST* include a unique email address on their application form. NHCC will deal with all corrections and email pertaining to your application, AZDHS still requires every patient include an email address or the application will be denied.

*NHCC is not the party issuing the patient a Medical Marijuana Card. The responsible party is the Arizona Department of Health Services. AZDHS will review, process and approve each patient application submitted by NHCC.

*Due to patient confidentiality requirements, AZDHS requires contact with the patient to retrieve any information pertaining to the patient’s application. NHCC cannot call AZDHS on behalf of the patient and receive information; this is the patient’s responsibility.

*In the event of a name or address change, lost or stolen card, or change to caregiver information the patient must contact AZDHS by phone or email, or fill out a Card Change Application through azdhs.org. NHCC can aid the patient in filling out this application.

*If you are receiving Food Stamp Benefits (SNAP) proper eligibility paperwork from DES (including active dates of benefits, patient name, and date of birth) must be provided to receive the discounted state fee.  An EBT card will also suffice if the patient’s name is embossed on the front of the card. NO OTHER forms of verification are accepted by AZDHS.

*If you are designating a caregiver NHCC will submit your fingerprints by certified mail to AZDHS. After fingerprints have been mailed, AZDHS is responsible for the approval of the application.

*Our physicians are NOT DIAGNOSING the patient; they are providing a recommendation for the Medical Marijuana Program based on previously diagnosed qualifying conditions.

*NHCC can and will do anything in our capacity to help the patient, this disclaimer is intended to inform our patients of the obstacles of working with AZDHS.
