What you need to know when renewing your medical card in Oklahoma!

Does renewing your medical marijuana card give you ANXIETY? Do you have questions about renewing your medical marijuana card in Oklahoma? Have you tried to call OMMA for guidance, only to wait for what seems like hours, or you were told to call back? Don’t worry, you are not alone. We hope to clear up some of that confusion for you. At Compassionate Clinics of America, it is our job to ensure a smooth process for all our patients.  We would be honored to take this journey with you.

How will I know when it’s time to renew my license?

Patient and caregiver license holders will receive notices from OMMA 30 days prior to the license expiration date. These notices are sent from the registry system to the email address in the application.

When can I renew my license?

Patients and caregivers can submit their renewal no earlier than 30 days prior to expiration.

Once the application has been submitted, it will be reviewed by the OMMA. If it is deemed complete and meets all requirements, an approval letter with your license will be mailed within 14 business days of the application submission date.

If an application is incomplete due to unclear or missing information or documents, you will receive email correspondence stating the reason(s) it is incomplete. You will be able to log back into your account to make corrections once you receive this email (but not before). The re-submission date is the date a complete application is provided.

If an application is reviewed and denied because all requirements have not been met, a denial letter stating the reason(s) for denial will be mailed within 14 business days of submission.

How will I know if my renewal application has been submitted?

You will receive a confirmation email and receipt with an application reference code/application ID number, which means that your application has been submitted and is in the application queue.

What happens once my renewal is submitted?

The department has 14 days to process patient and caregiver applications; applications are processed in the order they were received. All applicants will be contacted when the application is processed.

What do I need to do once my renewal application is approved?

Once the application has been approved, the patient and/or caregiver will receive an approval letter with your license that will be mailed within 14 business days of the application submission date.

If an application is incomplete due to unclear or missing information or documents, patients will receive an email correspondence stating the reason(s) it is incomplete. You will be able to log back into your account to make corrections once you receive this email (but not before). The submission date is the date a complete application is provided.

If an application is reviewed and denied because all requirements have not been met, a denial letter stating the reason(s) for denial will be mailed within 14 business days of the application submission date.

What if my license expires while my renewal is being processed?

Renewal applications that are submitted fewer than 14 days prior to the license expiration may not be processed prior to the license expiration date. Licensees are encouraged to submit renewal applications at least 30 days prior to expiration to ensure license re-issuance prior to the expiration of their license.

Because the department has 14 days to process all patient/caregiver applications, patients whose renewals are submitted less than 14 days from the expiration date may experience a lapse in their license until the renewal application is processed.

Are you considering not renewing as you did not find relief with medical marijuana? Did you work with a professional to help you determine which consumption method, dosing, and products would be most beneficial to you?  To help reduce patient frustration and aid patients in finding relief, Compassionate Clinics of America has medical marijuana nurses on staff to assist patients with finding the “sweet spot.”
