Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Do I have to be a Vermont Resident to Use Act 39?
A: Yes, you must a Vermont resident. The prescribing doctor is the person who must confirm that you are a Vermont resident before you can qualify under Act 39. Factors to be considered may include whether you own or lease a residence in Vermont, whether you have a Vermont driver's license, whether you filed a tax return in Vermont, and whether you are registered to vote in Vermont.
Q: Can PCV Recommend a Doctor who will Prescribe under Act 39?
A: PCV does not maintain a list of doctors and is not able to make referrals. We encourage patients whose doctors are not willing to prescribe under Act 39 to specifically ask their doctor for a referral to another physician. This kind of referral is no different than a referral for any other kind of specialty.
