Find a Qualified Medical Provider

In order to qualify for a medical cannabis card in Utah, you must see a Qualified Medical Provider (QMP), who is state-certified to issue medical cards.

But don’t worry! Utah Canna does this for your, connecting you with the next available physician to get you certified.

Complete the State Application

You must register and apply with Utah’s Electronic Verification System, or EVS, in order for a QMP to certify them at their appointment.

To get started, check out our complete state application guide for more info.

Visit Your QMP

This is where your provider reviews your medical history and verifies the condition you are seeking to obtain your medical card for.

Once verified, your QMP will certify your state application at your appointment.

Utah Canna’s online registration process securely collects this information from you and ensures that your provider has all the necessary information in order to qualify you.

Pay the State Application Fee

After your QMP certifies your state application, you will be required to pay the $15 application fee inside of EVS before receiving your medical card.

This fee is different for those applying for a Guardian or Caregiver card, which is currently $68.25.
