How to Renew a Medical Marijuana Card

  1. Login to Your Medical Marijuana Profile

    • Review information under the ‘Profile Setting’ tab for accuracy and be sure to save any changes
    • Select the blue “Renew My Patient Registration” button
  2. Obtain A New Doctor’s Certification
    • Once your profile is updated, you will receive an email notification to see a physician for a new certification. This may be the same doctor who previously certified you, or another certified physician
    • This physician must be registered with the PA Department of Health; a complete list of registered physicians may be found at medicalmarijuana.pa.gov
    • Once the physician certifies you, your new card will come in the mail (however, you must still pay the annual fee for the card to activate; see steps below)
    • Your new card will be issued for the day after your previous card expires
  3. Pay For Your Card
    • Payments must be made annually to retain coverage
    • 30 days before the annual renewal fee is due, you will receive an email with instructions to make a $50 payment to the state
    • This payment may be lowered if you qualify for a lower fee
  4. Visit A Dispensary
