If you are unsure whether you qualify, speak to your doctor or contact the New York State Department of Health.

 

How to get a Patient Certification
 

To become certified under the program, you first need a physician who is registered with the NYS Medical Marijuana Program. They are the only ones allowed to prescribe Etain products.

Once you have found a registered physician, they need to diagnose the condition (and associated symptoms) and submit it to the program.
 

Registered Doctors

A preliminary list of registered doctors who can recommend medical marijuana in New York can be found with the Department of Health.

How to get a Registry ID card

 

To register with the NYS Medical Marijuana Program and obtain the associated Registry ID card, you must apply via the Department of Health.

 

Patients must be a resident of, or be receiving care and treatment in New York State
Patients must possess a certification issued by a registered doctor
Patients under the age of 18 must have a parent or legal guardian over the age of 21, or a caregiver specified by a parent or legal guardian over the age of 21, to submit an application on their behalf.

Applications for an ID card will be reviewed by the Department of Health within thirty (30) days of receipt.

What do caregivers need?

 

Certified and registered patients may specify up to two caregivers to assist in accessing and administering medical marijuana treatments.

Designated caregivers must apply for a Registry ID card in order to assist patients with medical marijuana treatment.

Registered caregivers may not be actively caring for more than five Registered Patients at a time.

Keep your documentation active

 

Remember: both the Patient Certification and Registry ID card are valid for up to one year from the original date of your doctor’s certification (except in the case of terminal illness). Be sure to check the expiration date on both documents!
 

Re-apply

Prior to the expiration date of your Registry ID card ask your doctor for an updated recommendation. This updated recommendation will automatically be linked to your Registry ID card and will be valid for one year.
 

Expired documentation

Contact your doctor for an updated recommendation and re-apply with the Department of Health for a new Registry ID card.
