Utah residents diagnosed with certain qualifying conditions are eligible to apply for Medical Cards that give them access to certain types of herbal medicines. Given that KindlyMD operates a number of pain clinics here in Utah, we can also help patients apply for their cards. One of the tools we rely on to get the process started is a short quiz designed to quickly determine Medical Card eligibility
While the quiz is only a preliminary determination, the patient completes the quiz and submits it electronically. We can determine, from the answers given, whether a patient is likely to qualify. If so, the patient can then make an appointment to see one of our qualified medical providers (QMPs).
For KindlyMD QMPs to make a Medical Card recommendation, we need to verify two things. Our preliminary quiz helps us here by giving us some basic information. A patient's answers can give us a sense of their overall health and any health problems.
Here is what we need to verify:
To verify these two things, our quiz asks some basic questions. One of the questions relates to the condition for which you are seeking treatment. Chronic pain is one of the options you can choose. But we also ask:
The answers you provide tell us a great deal. We can learn a lot more by sitting down and talking things over in-person, but the quiz is a very useful preliminary screening tool. It helps both KindlyMD and its patients get a better idea of whether a Medical Card is worth investigating further.
Patients interested in visiting our QMPs to obtain their Medical Cards can complete our quiz online. It only takes a minute or so. If you are concerned about submitting information online, know that KindlyMD is HIPAA compliant. You might even notice a small seal at the bottom of the quiz designating as much.
HIPAA stands for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. In a nutshell, HIPAA is a 1996 federal law that requires healthcare providers to protect their patients’ sensitive medical information.
We take every precaution possible to protect patient data. We comply with all state and federal mandates relating to collecting and storing information online. But even if the legal mandates weren't there, we would still do our best to protect our patients. Your safety and security are important to us.
We assume you have visited the KindlyMD website because you are looking to visit a pain management doctor. If that's the case, we encourage you to take our Utah Medical Card eligibility quiz today. It may be that getting a Medical Card isn't your best option. But perhaps it is. There's no way to know without first visiting with a QMP. Our quiz is the starting point.
Believe it or not, taking the brief quiz accomplishes a lot. It gives us vital information we need to determine whether we can help you get your card.
