How much does the medicine cost? read more

DPH regulations prevent RMDs from advertising prices outside of the dispensary, except over the phone, to verified patients. Our pricing structure is aimed at providing the highest quality medical-grade cannabis, in a safe environment at the lowest price. Due to federal banking restrictions, we are only able to accept payment in cash at this time.

Patients with documented financial hardship may qualify for our Financial Hardship Program. Verified financial hardship is defined as "an individual is a recipient of MassHealth, or Supplemental Security Income, or the individual's income does not exceed 300% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL), adjusted for family size."

Patients that qualify for ATG's Financial Hardship Program are limited to purchasing one ounce per month of dried flower, or the price equivalent in MIPs, with a discount. Patients will need to continue to provide proof of eligibility on an annual basis to maintain participation in this program.

Please also complete IRS form 4506-T, and submit it to the IRS. The IRS will mail the results to our office. Our staff will review your documentation and get back to you once it has been processed. Please consult the chart below for discount levels.

2. To provide evidence of enrollment in Supplemental Security Income (SSI), please submit SSA Form 3288 to the Social Security Administration. The SSA will mail the results to our office. Our staff will review your documentation and get back to you once it has been processed.
