Some patients may be eligible for an MMJ card but unable to apply for one themselves. For example, should the patient be a minor under 18, or if the patient needs assistance accessing medical cannabis, a caregiver can be assigned to complete the process on their behalf.

  • When requesting their application packet, medical cannabis patients can also request an application for a caregiver.
  • The patient can add their caregiver to their account once they have registered.
    • Click on the check next to “I will have a caregiver,” and the upload prompts will display.
    • Follow the same process for uploading the caregiver’s driver’s license or state ID.
  • If requesting to add a caregiver after a patient has been certified, the patient will need a new attending healthcare provider statement with the caregiver’s information listed.
  • Caregivers must complete and submit their application packet.
    • A serially numbered registry identification card will be issued to the designated primary caregiver upon approval. Their card will expire at the same time as their patient’s.
  • There is no fee for the addition of a caregiver.
