A caregiver is someone who can pick up medical marijuana at a dispensary on a patient’s behalf. Each patient may designate up to two caregivers. Minor patients are required to have a caregiver.

Becoming a Caregiver
  1. Sign up online
    • Register for the program through the Medical Marijuana Registry at https://padohmmp.custhelp.com/app/login
    • Select the appropriate option from the caregiver section
    • You must have the patient’s ID number (as found in the patient’s profile) and a PA driver’s license or ID card to register
  2. Complete background check
    • Background checks are run through Identogo; their locations can be found at www.identogo.com/locations
    • You cannot be approved as a caregiver if you have been convicted of a criminal offense that occurred within the last five years relating to the sale or possession of drugs, narcotics, or controlled substances
  3. Complete authorization form
    • If you are a caregiver for a minor but not the patient’s parent, legal guardian, or spouse, you will need to be designated as a third-party caregiver
    • Complete an ‘authorization to designate a third-party caregiver’ form and upload the completed form back to your caregiver profile
  4. Pay for your card
    • Submit the $50 fee for card; patients enrolled in Medicaid, PAC, CHIP, SNAP, and WIC may be eligible for a discount
    • You will receive your card via mail
  5. Visit a dispensary
    • Once you receive your card in the mail, you may visit Keystone Shops or any other approved dispensary in the state of PA
    • Bring your state-issued ID
    • First-time patients and caregivers are welcome to a free consultation with a medical professional at the dispensary
