How Do I Renew My Medical Marijuana Card?

Our reputation as the most responsible choice in the industry is important to us. Therefore, we have implemented the Attorney Protection Plan to protect the interests and privacy of our patients. The AZMMCC arranges an attorney consultation for every patient who is certified by our Arizona medical marijuana doctors. Patients have the opportunity to discuss any questions regarding the legal use of medical marijuana with an attorney who is experienced in the area of medical marijuana laws. The AZMMCC covers the cost of the legal consultation as a gesture of thanks to the patients who choose our center for medical marijuana certification.

 

The Qualification Process for the Arizona Medical Marihuana Program
Qualification for the Arizona Medical Marijuana Program requires a strict certification process. 

First and foremost, you must have a medical condition that qualifies you for the use of
medical marijuana under Arizona  State Statutes. If you suffer from any of the conditions
below, you could benefit from the use of medical marijuana:

Agitation of Alzheimer’s Disease
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
Cancer
Crohn’s Disease
Glaucoma
Hepatitis C
HIV/AIDS
Nail Patella
Cachexia or Wasting Syndrome

Severe Nausea
Severe and Chronic Pain
Seizures
Severe and Persistent Muscle Spasms

Step 1: Medical Record Collection

The first step in the medical marijuana application process is extensive documentation of your medical condition. Without current and verifiable medical records, our physicians will be unable to certify your condition under Arizona law. Although there are conditions where a patient will qualify for the Arizona Medical Marihuana Program without the necessity of full documentation, the Arizona Medical Marijuana Certification Center (AZMMCC) requires that all your records are current within the last three years and document your qualifying condition.

If you prefer that we handle your medical record collection, you must complete the medical release form and fax or mail it to our office so that we may request your medical records from your treatment.

IMPORTANT NOTE:

When renewing your existing Medical Marijuana Card the Arizona Department of Health Services requires you to update your medical history from the previous year within 30 days of your expiration date on your card.  We suggest that on your next  visit to your Primary Care Physician ask for your updated records. You can bring them with you to your Renewal Appointment, Mail them or Fax them to the address and number listed below.

Step 2:  Physician Review

Upon receipt of your medical records, our physicians thoroughly review the records to determine if you qualify for the Arizona Medical Marihuana Program. If additional documents are required for the review, a AZMMCC staff member will contact you and let you know which documents are needed for our records. If you qualify for the program, we will call you to schedule an appointment with one of our physicians.

Step 3:  Certification Appointment

At your certification appointment, our physicians will talk with you about your qualification for certification of a medical condition that may qualify you for the Arizona Medical Marihuana Program. By law, our physicians must only discuss your qualification for the program. After review and approval, qualified patients will receive a signed Physician Certification Form that will allow them to apply to the state for a Medical Marijuana Identification Card. In order to receive the Physician Certification Form, patients must present a valid Arizona ID, such as a Arizona ID or Arizona driver’s license, along with the physician visit fee. Please note that insurance companies do not cover medical marijuana consultations or the state’s medical marijuana application fee.
