How Much Does the Utah Medical Marijuana Card Cost?

The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) issues medical cannabis cards to individuals registered in the Utah medical marijuana program. Utah issues these five types of medical cannabis cards:

  • Patient cards - these are MMJ cards issued to qualified patients aged 18 or older
  • Provisional patient cards - these cards are issued to minors and can only be issued along with guardian cards
  • Guardian cards - these are for the parents or legal guardians of patients under the age of 18
  • Caregiver cards - these medical cannabis cards are for designated caregivers aged 21 or older
  • Non-resident cards - temporary MMJ cards for visitors to the states with qualifying conditions recognized in Utah and medical cannabis cards from their home states

Cost of Physician Consultation

Before applying for registration in the Utah medical cannabis program, a patient must visit a medical provider to be certified for medical cannabis use. Utah only accepts in-person consultation with medical providers for this certification. A qualified medical provider must be a doctor of medicine (MD), doctor of osteopathy (DO), physician assistant (PA), or an advanced practice registered nurse (APRN) registered with the DHHS to recommend medical cannabis. The medical provider must confirm a patient’s diagnosis to be on the list of qualifying medical conditions in Utah before providing a certification and recommendation for them on the state’s medical cannabis registry. While medical providers do not charge patients for medical cannabis recommendations, they may charge for the consultations arranged to obtain these recommendations. Patients may expect to pay $100 - $400 for medical cannabis certification consultations.

Utah Medical Marijuana Card Fee

The Utah DHHS charges $15 for a patient card. The temporary non-resident medical cannabis card issued in the state also costs $15. The renewal fee for either card is also $15. Utah only issues provisional patient cards and guardian cards together. It charges $68.25 for a guardian card and a provisional patient card. The cost of renewing both cards is $24. For a secondary guardian and a provisional patient card, Utah charges $15 and sets the renewal cost of this card pair as $15 too.

A caregiver card for a first patient costs $68.25 while the card for a caregiver designated by a secondary patient costs $15. The DHHS does not charge a fee for renewing a caregiver card for the first time. However, subsequent renewals cost $14.
