CHICAGO, June 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Wellness Medical Protection Group (WMPG), a Michigan licensed insurance agency, announced today that it is working with Ohio-based marijuana dispensary credentialing agency National Medical Marijuana Accreditation Organization (NMMAO) to offer dispensaries nationwide "best premium pricing" from A-rated insurance carriers and other savings incentives, when dispensaries become accredited by NMMAO.
"Wellness Medical Protection Group's quality rated insurers are formally recognizing the value that NMMAO accreditation brings to its dispensary customers and wanted to reward those dispensaries," WMPG agent Ed Kuhn explains. "The NMMAO accreditation truly differentiates dispensaries who are interested in serving a wider population, and WMPG is interested in representing our program policies with those dispensaries and compassionate care centers."
"Marijuana dispensaries and compassionate care centers are licensed to serve a healthcare need and therefore should undergo the same stringent accreditation as all other healthcare providers in the U.S. NMMAO has set the standard for marijuana dispensary accreditation and we are delighted to be working with WMPG to reward those dispensaries that have completed our program," stated NMMAO founder and healthcare administration expert Jean M Milford. "NMMAO-accredited dispensaries think more deeply about the role they play in the delivery of healthcare services to cannabis patients. Through accreditation, that role moves from one of simply selling a product to consumers to one focused on the overall clinical health and outcome of all patients.
