As the stigma slowly melts away, cannabis remains federally illegal. Insurance companies fearful of repercussions are not covering medical cannabis. Doctors in these insurance networks are refusing to recommend this medicine for fear of being shut out of the network.
“Health care costs, for many, are challenging enough and are driven through the roof when the full responsibility is placed on the patient.” -Wendy Love Edge, Founder of Bulldozer Health

Free Medical Cannabis Evaluation in Arkansas
In Arkansas, Bulldozer Health has partnered with Dr. Tammy Post of Better Living RX to offer free patient consultations to low-income patients making less than $18,000 annually. These evaluations will be available to patients meeting low-income requirements with a qualifying condition in both Northwest Arkansas and the River Valley.
Bulldozer Health also boasts a program that offers patients a $50 waiver for the medical cannabis card from the Arkansas Department of Health. This program gives top priority to terminal cancer patients. Patients can apply for the $50 fee to be paid by Bulldozer Health from funds raised in Arkansas at “Take Back Your Health America” benefit concerts and health fairs.
