Patient Application Information

Patient Application Information

Patient Application Information

What is a medical marijuana patient license?

A medical marijuana patient license allows an individual with an approved application to legally buy, use, and grow medical marijuana and medical marijuana products in Oklahoma. This license will be in the form of an identification card that can be used to prove an individual is a license holder. This card will contain the individual’s name, photo, date of birth, city and county of residence, the type of license, the date the license expires, and the patient’s unique medical marijuana license number.

How long does my patient license last?

A patient license is valid for two years from the date it is issued, or 60 days from the date it is issued for short-term licenses, unless the license is revoked by the physician or OMMA.

How do I apply?

Applications and payment will be collected through an online system. This system is available at omma.ok.gov. You will need a valid email address to login to this system. This email address will be used to send notices once you create an account.

What information do I need to provide in the application?

The following information is needed for a patient license:

  • Patient’s full name
  • Residence and mailing address
  • Date of birth
  • Telephone number and email address
  • Physician information
  • Patient signature dated within 30 days of the application date

What documentation do I need to provide in the application?

The following unexpired, valid documentation is required for the application:

  • Proof of Oklahoma residency (digital, color copy of one of the following):   
    • Oklahoma driver’s license (front and back)
    • Oklahoma identification card (front and back)
    • Oklahoma voter identification card
    • A utility bill for the calendar month preceding the date of application, excluding cellular telephone and internet bills
    • A residential property deed to property in the State of Oklahoma
    • A current rental agreement for residential property located in the State of Oklahoma

    • Oklahoma driver’s license (front and back)
    • Oklahoma identification card (front and back)
    • U.S. passport or other photo identification issued by the U.S government
    • Tribal identification card approved for identification purposes by the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety:   
      • United States Bureau of Indian Affairs identification card or a Oklahoma tribal photo identification cards: Muscogee (Creek) Nation of Oklahoma, Kiowa, Comanche, Apache of Oklahoma, Absentee Shawnee, Cheyenne-Arapaho, Choctaw, Delaware, Caddo Nation of Oklahoma issued on or after January 8, 2008.
  • A clear, color, full-face digital photograph
  • 2 Year or 60-Day Adult Patient Physician Recommendation Form dated within 30 days of application submission.
  • If applicable, the patient’s Medicaid (SoonerCare) enrollment documentation, Medicare insurance card, or letter from the Veteran’s Administration or other federal agency listing the applicant’s disability status as 100% disabled

How much does the application cost?

The standard application fee is $100. Individuals who provide acceptable proof of Medicaid (SoonerCare) or Medicare enrollment or status as a 100% disabled veteran will pay a reduced fee of $20. Application fees must be paid by Visa, MasterCard, or Discover credit or debit card. An additional credit card processing fee will be added to the transaction. These application and processing fees are non-refundable. The payment will not be refunded for applications not approved.

What if I don’t have a credit card?

Many retail stores have pre-paid MasterCard or Visa cards available for purchase. Applicants who do not have access to a personal credit card may purchase one of these pre-paid cards and load the amount of the licensing and processing fees at the store. The card may then be used for the online transaction.

How do I get a doctor’s recommendation?

You will need to visit your doctor and have him or her complete and sign the Adult Patient Physician Recommendation Form. A digital copy of this form must be submitted with the application through the online system. This form must be dated within 30 days of the date you apply. For instance, if your physician signs the recommendation form on September 30, the application must be submitted by October 30.

What happens after I apply?

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 identification card will be mailed within 14 days of your 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 in to your account to make corrections. Your 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 days of submission.

Who will check my license identification card?

A medical marijuana identification card and another form of identification should be presented any time you purchase medical marijuana at a dispensary or have marijuana taken to a processor to be concentrated. Law enforcement may also require your identification card to prove you are licensed to legally use and possess medical marijuana.

What if I need someone to help me buy or use medical marijuana?

Caregiver licenses are available for caregivers of certain patients who can provide documentation from a physician that they need a caregiver. This documentation is part of the Adult Patient Physician Recommendation Form and can be provided by you when you submit your application or at a later date by accessing your online account. A patient can only have one licensed caregiver at a time, and the caregiver must submit an application meeting all requirements to receive a caregiver license. This includes the requirement that the caregiver must provide an Adult Patient Caregiver Designation Form signed by you.

Can I change my caregiver?

Yes, you may submit the Patient Withdrawal of Caregiver Form to withdraw a current caregiver. To designate another caregiver, a separate caregiver application with another Adult Patient Caregiver Designation Form signed by the patient will be required.
