Novus Reaches Milestone in Providing Affordable Medicinal Marijuana Treatment to Arizona Patients Statewide

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwired - Dec 15, 2014) - Novus Acquisition & Development Corp (OTC PINK: NDEV), wholly owned subsidiary Novus Medical Group, Inc., a service provider of the health and wellness savings plan, "Novus MedPlan," is proud to announce that we have completed our strategic network provider outreach in Arizona. With the awareness that PR Revolution (http://www.prrevolution.com), a public relations and marketing agency who specializes in the cannabis sector, delivered for Novus at the National Marijuana Business Conference last month, Novus was able to exceed expectations for provider enrollment, connect with new providers and execute agreements with more-than-willing dispensaries and wellness clinics. As a result, Novus MedPlan is now ready to assist patients in more states than ever before.

"We have completed our strategic network provider outreach and geographically aligned ourselves throughout the state of Arizona to ensure all of our members have access to Medical Marijuana Clinics and wellness providers within their region, regardless of where in the state they reside," said Andrea Lopez, Novus President and CEO. "The Novus team is energized about exceeding provider enrollment in Arizona and is continuing its expansion of our Provider Network in Colorado. We plan to continue to build our provider network to strengthen our footprint throughout the country."

The Novus MedPlan Program is a revolutionary approach to reducing healthcare costs within the MMJ and wellness industry. Individuals and their families can save money on the cost of healthcare-related products and services that are not covered by standard healthcare programs. Patients' cost-saving plan will be 20% to 50% off for members of Novus MedPlan, which include: doctors' consultations, alternative medication and medical marijuana in approved states; all for a low fee of $19.95 per month. All patients have the ability to complete their enrollment online 24 hours a day at http://www.novusmedicalgroup.com.
