DCP: Patient and Caregiver Renewals

Patient and Caregiver Renewals

 
Each patient and caregiver registration expires one year from the date the physician certified the patient to use medical marijuana. This means that if your doctor certified you on October 1, 2012, your registration (and your caregiverís registration) will expire on October 1, 2013, even if you did not apply for a card until several weeks later. 
 
The date of your card's expiration will be on the front of your card. 
 
Before your card expires, the registration system (https://www.biznet.ct.gov/dcp-mmrp ) will allow you and your doctor to begin the renewal process. In large part, the renewal process will be similar to the process that you went through for your original registration. When you log into the system, however, you will notice that many of the fields are already filled in for you. 
 
The following is what each person will need to do to complete the renewal:
 
 
Physician:
  • Confirm that the patient is under your care;
  • Provide the date that you examined the patient for the renewed certification;
  • Confirm that you still have a bona-fide patient/physician relationship;
  • Complete the three certifications that are at the end of the form; and
Update any other information to the extent it has changed from the previous year (e.g. if you or the patient has a new address). This information will already be filled in and the Department will assume it is the same if you do not change it.
 
 
Patient:
  • Provide proof that you still live in Connecticut;
  • Provide an updated photograph;
  • Complete the five certifications at the end;
  • Pay a one hundred ($100.00) dollars registration fee; and
  • Update any other information to the extent it has changed from the previous year (e.g., if your caregiver has a different address). This information will already be filled in and the Department will assume it is the same if you do not change it.
    • Remember: Only your physician can update your personal information. Before submitting your renewal, you will need to contact him or her if that information is no longer correct.
    • If your name has changed, in addition to making sure your physician updates that information in his or her certification, you will need to provide the Department with proof of identity as you did for your initial registration.
 
Caregiver:
  • Provide an updated photograph;
  • Complete the five certifications at the end of the form; and
  • Pay a twenty-five ($25.00) dollar the registration fee.
