Each one of our patients will be assigned a Patient Advocate who will assist through the entire application process and serve as a liaison between the patient and our doctors. Patient Advocates provide an opportunity for our patients to voice concerns or problems in a confidential setting.
In addition, our advocates are here to answer any and all questions patients have about the “Illinois Compassionate Use of Cannabis Pilot Program” and their rights as registered patients, by providing the most up to date information pertaining to the law.
Patient registry identification cards are valid one year from the date it is issued. Patients are required to reapply to the program within 45 days of the expiration date. We will send our patient’s renewal notices every year and can handle our patient’s entire renewal application process.
