Missouri DHSS Clarifies Renewal Process for Marijuana Patients During COVID-19
With renewal dates soon coming up, many Missouri medical marijuana patients had questions regarding the process due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Some of the most common questions included how the renewal process will be executed and if there were any additional requirements besides the $25 renewal fee to the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services.
The DHSS clarified that they will not be providing extensions for medical marijuana card expirations. They will be sending patients renewal reminders 60, 45, 30, and 15 days before the expiration date to their email addresses. The time frame to submit a patient renewal is 60 days prior to the expiration date, and no less than 30 days before expiration. The Missouri DHSS has 30 days from the submission of the renewal to process the application.
As for the renewal process, all patients are required to meet with a certified Missouri medical marijuana doctor for an evaluation to obtain a new certification. Fortunately, Missouri allows the use of telemedicine so patients can be reapproved for medical marijuana in the comfort and safety of their own homes, especially during COVID-19. Once a patient receives their new certification, they will need to submit the certification to the Missouri DHSS, provide a copy of a valid Missouri I.D., and pay the $25 application fee.
