Ohio House Bill 122 has passed and permanently allows telemedicine evaluations for Ohio medical marijuana patients.
What is Telemedicine?
Telemedicine is the practice of medicine using technology to deliver care at a distance.
What are the benefits of Telemedicine?
Telemedicine permits patients to access healthcare services remotely. This is particularly important in areas where medical providers are not as available; for patients without convenient access to transportation; or to those that suffer from debilitating conditions which affect mobility.
Telemedicine also allows medical practices to scale back their operating expenses and reduce time spent on administrative tasks. In most cases, this lowers costs for patients and third-party payers.
Are there any drawbacks to Telemedicine?
A concern for the provision of healthcare services by telemedicine is lower quality interactions and diminished provider-patient relationships. Some medical services and conditions require in-person visits to conduct a comprehensive examination. If telemedicine is used as a substitute, the patient may not receive the highest standard of care.
Telemedicine, under certain conditions, is allowable in Ohio. The State Medical Board has expanded services which can be provided through telemedicine if providers document their use of telemedicine and meet minimum standards of care.
The Medical Board of Ohio has included medical marijuana recommendations in their expansion of telemedicine services.
Telemedicine allows medical marijuana physicians to confirm the diagnosis of a qualifying condition made by a previous healthcare professional without an office visit, providing greater access and reducing costs.
Ohio House Bill 122, sponsored by The Honorable Mark Fraizer and Adam Holmes, serves as an important and common sense expansion of Ohio's telehealth policy.
The bill has been signed into law. Telemedicine for medical marijuana evaluations will be permanently implemented in Ohio, rather than a temporary extension through March 2022.
Becoming an Ohio Medical Marijuana Patient
Due to the state-specific regulatory environment of medical marijuana programs and physician licensing, at present time we are only able to offer MyMD services to Ohio residents. We hope to expand to more states in the near future.
Under Ohio law, qualifying medical conditions include all of the following:
AIDS, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, cachexia, cancer, chronic traumatic encephalopathy, Crohn’s disease, epilepsy or another seizure disorder, fibromyalgia, glaucoma, hepatitis C, Huntington’s disease, inflammatory bowel disease, multiple sclerosis, pain that is either chronic and severe or intractable, Parkinson’s disease, positive status for HIV, post-traumatic stress disorder, sickle cell anemia, Spasticity, spinal cord disease or injury, terminal illness, Tourette syndrome, traumatic brain injury, and ulcerative colitis.
As of February 2021, the State Medical Board of Ohio determined the following conditions are considered covered by a qualifying condition: arthritis, chronic migraines, and complex regional pain syndrome.
Of course. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message at 614.423.6949 with any questions.
Please let us know if you have not heard back within 48 hours.
Absolutely. If your physician or specialist would like to discuss any patient care matter, our doctors and pharmacists will gladly accommodate.

Online Booking & Intake
1. Telemedicine - The implementation of telemedicine for medical marijuana patients in Ohio has lowered the cost of offering physician services. Without the overhead of maintaining offices, savings are passed to our patients.
2. Not a Card Company - MyMedicine is a consulting company with long-term interests of assisting the cannabis industry and healthcare providers better serve cannabis consumers. We are not driven by providing medical marijuana cards.
3. Value for Service - With medical marijuana, dispensary staff guide patients through product selection. Cannabis physicians confirm a qualifying condition, but generally do not make an initial diagnosis or actively manage therapy. We believe this service is not appropriately priced for the level of care patients receive at many card companies.
MyMD physicians are knowledgable about Ohio's medical marijuana market and provide an overview of cannabis medicine, the program, and available products. Higher-level therapy management is conducted by MyMedicine pharmacists in conjunction with our doctors as a separate service.
MyMD offers a quick and easy process to schedule your evaluation for an Ohio medical marijuana card.
1. Select a day and time for your evaluation through the MyMedicine website. Billing information must be entered, but your credit card will be charged one hour before the appointment.
2. An electronic intake form and telemedicine link will be sent to your email. If you do not complete your intake form and upload medical records, our staff will follow-up 24 hours prior to your scheduled appointment.
3. At your scheduled time, click the appointment link to initiate a telemedicine evaluation.
*Availability may be limited initially as we await the status of telemedicine in Ohio. Please email email@example.com if a convenient time slot is unavailable to schedule an evaluation outside business hours.
Before an Ohio medical marijuana card can be activated, MyMD must confirm a diagnosis of a qualifying condition.
Medical records can be submitted to MyMD is one of three ways:
- Upload the record on the MyMD online intake form after booking your evaluation. (BEST)
- Email a copy of your record to firstname.lastname@example.org with "Your Name - Medical Record" in the subject line
- Have your physician's office fax your record to 833.563.2270
An image of the record should include your name, diagnosis, date, and the originating physician or institution. Patient portal images, pdf attachments, and scanned documents are all acceptable.
Many diagnosis may fall within the umbrella of a qualifying condition. Our office staff will review upon submission and inform you prior to the appointment if there are any issues with the medical record.
Since MyMD is beginning operations, all patients are new with respect to record submission. Renewal patients must also upload their medical record. Medical records are not accessible between card companies or physicians. The Medical Board requires all offices to keep records on file in a HIPAA-compliant manner for three years.
Should you have any questions regarding medical record qualification or upload, please email email@example.com or call 614.423.6949.
An image of your government-issued ID is necessary during the intake process to ensure proper registration.
- The accuracy of the information electronically submitted to the state must match the physical ID. If not, you will not be able to be pulled up in the registry at the dispensary for entry.
- The address entered into the registry is based upon the address listed on your ID, not where you may reside at present time.
- A US passport, Driver's License, or Identification Card are acceptable.
- Out-of-state ID's must be accompanied by proof of residence in Ohio such as current utility bills or bank statements.
Patients registered with Veteran or Indigent Status receive a discount on Administrative Fees and products at dispensaries. In order for your medical marijuana card to indicate this status, documentation must be provided to the state.
MyMD is able to submit this documentation on your behalf or you can submit separately after your evaluation. Please be aware that if either of these special status are selected, the state must approve your documentation before your card can be activated. The process may take up to 7 days.
See below on approved documentation and submission details:
Each medical marijuana patient is allowed (2) Caregivers to make purchases on their behalf. If you would like to assign a caregiver to your account, complete the required information on the MyMD intake form. Please be aware that if caregivers are selected, the state must complete a background check before the Caregiver Card can be activated. The process may take up to 7 days.
More information about Caregivers can be found below:
During an evaluation, MyMD physicians will ask and document answers to a few state-required questions regarding medical marijuana. These questions will relate to your medical history.
For new patients, an introduction is given on medical marijuana therapy and the products available, followed by suggesting the best course of action for their medical condition.
New patients will also receive an overview of the Ohio Medical Marijuana Control Program and what to expect next.
Renewal patients receive an assessment of medical marijuana effectiveness and discuss any changes with their qualifying condition.
Below is a link of requirements set forth by the state for providing medical marijuana recommendations which MyMD physicians and administrative satisfy through the intake and evaluation process:
MyMD evaluations are available by telemedicine only. A link to enter the telemedicine appointment will be sent by email upon booking.
Telemedicine allows for interactive communication with a MyMD physician through a computer, tablet, or smartphone. In addition to reducing in-person contact through the COVID-19 pandemic, telemedicine lowers costs and increases access to medical services for 1) underserved patients 2) patients in rural areas 3) patients with lack of transportation 4) elderly patients and those suffering from debilitating health conditions.

Should telemedicine expire in Ohio, MyMD rates may slightly increase. Akron-area patients will be able to have in-person evaluations immediately. We hope to expand to other select cities shortly thereafter.
MyMD physicians can provide general medical advice if it falls within their area of expertise. They will use clinical judgement on when to refer you to your regular physician or specialist.
MyMD physicians are able to advise on cannabis-related questions as it relates to your medical condition and give suggested products and dosages. Specific product recommendations will typically be deferred to dispensary staff or MyMedicine pharmacists.
After all intake forms are completed but prior to your evaluation, MyMD will begin the registration process for your medical marijuana card. This expedites obtaining your card after the evaluation.
You will receive an initial email from the State indicating registration is complete. THIS DOES NOT MEAN YOU HAVE AN ACTIVE RECOMMENDATION. Only after your telemedicine appointment is MyMD able to complete your recommendation. At that point, a second email will be sent by the State indicating your recommendation is active and you may pay the required fee to activate your card.
When searching for Registry emails, make sure to check your “Junk” or “Spam” folder if you cannot find it in your main inbox.
The telemedicine appointment allows MyMD to meet all state guidelines prior to issuing a recommendation for medical marijuana. Immediately after your appointment, your card is available for use and can be accessed in the Patient Registry. More information is available here:
Email firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message at 614.423.6949 with any questions.
Please let us know if you have not heard back within 48 hours for any administrative and program-related questions.
