Pasadena-based digital health startup Indica MD has launched a HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act ) compliant medical marijuana telehealth platform in California and New York that provides patient evaluations for the safe, complementary and alternative use of cannabis, a statement from the company said.

Indica MD is an online medical marijuana doctor service that said it provides patient evaluation for the safe, complementary and alternative use of cannabis. Company physicians are licensed in California and New York and can approve patients for their medical marijuana card so they are able to gain access to all medical cannabis dispensaries in their state, the company said.

“Indica MD provides our patients the safety and privacy to visit knowledgeable and compassionate medical marijuana doctors online from their smartphone, tablet, or computer,” says Dr. Teddy O’Connell, the Chief Executive Officer of Indica MD. “Before a patient can access medical marijuana, they must first obtain a valid recommendation or certification from a qualified, state-licensed medical doctor. Indica MD’s doctors provide these evaluations and operate in full compliance with the laws of California and New York.”

Indica MD’s website lists the number of specific medical conditions that qualify for medical marijuana use under the medical marijuana laws of both states. Among these are illnesses like inflammatory bowel disease, cancer, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, spinal cord injury, neuropathy, epilepsy, HIV and chronic pain.

In California, a recommendation for medical marijuana can also be obtained for arthritis, fibromyalgia, glaucoma, migraine headaches, anxiety and more.

Once ready, a patient only needs to sign up on the site to receive a 100-percent risk-free evaluation and pay only if approved.

Patients are able to video-chat with the doctor, and if approved, instantly receive an email with their California Medical Marijuana Recommendation Letter or New York Medical Marijuana Certification.

The website and the letter or certification also includes information about dispensaries in each state.

Patient information provided to Indica MD is a private and secured HIPAA-protected medical record.

When approved, patients can access Indica MD’s 24/7 online verification and live customer services Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Pacific Time.
