Renewing Your Medical Marijuana Card in Oklahoma

Renewing Your Medical Marijuana Card in Oklahoma

If your Oklahoma Medical Marijuana ID card expires soon, you will need to renew it to remain a registered patient. Learn how to make sure your access to cannabis goes uninterrupted. 

 

When do I need to renew my medical marijuana card?

The Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority (OMMA) requires patients to renew their license every 1 or 2 years. Your expiration date can be found on your patient ID card. You can renew your license up to 30 days before the expiration date!

When you are within a month of your medical card expiration date, follow these steps to renew your card.  

How do I renew my medical marijuana patient card?

The renewal process is similar to the original application process. You will see a doctor, get a doctor’s recommendation form, submit an application and pay the state’s registration fee. 

Step 1: Get a Physician Recommendation

OMMA requires a doctor’s recommendation each time you renew your marijuana card. You may choose to use the same physician that recommended you the first time, or you may choose a new physician. 

At Green Mind Physicians, we offer same-day online appointments to make this renewal process very simple. We also do paperwork for patients in Oklahoma! Provider recommendations expire 30 days after being signed. So don’t delay in continuing on to the next steps!

Step 2: Head to OMMA’s homepage. 

On OMMA’s homepage, you will see a large button for Returning Applicants. That’s you! Log In to your existing user account. Be sure to use the same email address you used to register for your OMMA ID. If you don’t have access to this email, you should contact the OMMA call center for further assistance. 

(Note: On January 24, 2022, OMMA moved to a new portal! The website will look different but operates in a similar way.)

 

 Step 3: Review Your Information For Accuracy

On the portal, you will have an option to submit the Patient Renewal Application. This will be populated with all of your information. Carefully check that all of this information is accurate and make updates as necessary. If you have moved, be sure to update your mailing address as this is where OMMA will send your new medical marijuana card. 

 Step 4: Upload Your Documents

You will need to upload three documents: 

A personal photo

Requirements: The photo provided with the application must be taken within the last 6 months, so you will need a NEW photo for your renewal application. More information on photo requirements can be found in this official document

Proof of Oklahoma Residency

Accepted documents include: Oklahoma Driver’s License, Oklahoma ID, Tribal Identification, utility bill, signed lease. 

Completed Physician Recommendation Form

Make sure your doctor completed the form legibly and it was signed within the last 30 days. 

Step 5: Submit Your Payment

The final step is to pay the Patient Renewal Fee to OMMA. In 2022, the fee is $100 with a $4.30 service fee. If you are a Medicare or Medicaid patient, you qualify for a discounted rate. 

Step 6: Rejoice!

After you’ve submitted your renewal application, there is nothing left to do but sit back and relax. Your new card will be delivered to your mailing address within 14 days. If you’ve submitted your renewal before your expiration, you shouldn’t experience any lapse in your ability to purchase medical marijuana at your favorite local dispensary. Huzzah!
