When should I renew my card?
You can begin the renewal process within 60 days of the expiration date on your current card. The PAMMJ team recommends renewing your card at least 3 weeks in advance to ensure your new patient card is delivered before your current card expires. It can take up to 7-10 business days for your new card to arrive after the appointment with the doctor.
How much does it cost to get a medical card?
New Patient: $125
Renewing Patient: $75
*After your appointment with the doctor, you must log in to your patient profile on the Dept. of Health website and pay the $50 annual fee to the state. Individuals who qualify for the Medical Marijuana Assistance Program (MMAP) are exempt from this fee.*
