I was notified today that Compassionate care has come to the medical marijuana community. I was able to verify a few details into the program, but I do have some open questions. Please contact your dispensary to confirm. Any feedback will be shared and updated.
What I know is Thames Valley Alternative Relief and The Healing Corner have finalized compassionate care programs. Thames Valley has announced they are taking Compassionate Care applications now.
Thames Valley program:
If your annual income is below $23,540 for a single person household, then you will qualify for extra help in paying for your medication. (higher income limits apply for households that have more than one person). I can only assume that they are basing the annual income on the Federal Poverty guidelines. It would appear from their announcement they are providing relief for patients who are in the 200% column.
The Healing Corner program:
If your income is below the 100% Federal Poverty level, a patient will get 20% off your first ounce, every month.
