Per Arizona Administrative Code (A.A.C.) R9-17-102, the application fee for a renewal application is the same as the application fee for a new application.

• Qualifying Patient Application, $150

• Minor Patient Application (includes caregiver), $350 or $275 if SNAP eligible

• Designated Caregiver Application, $200 (for each application)

If you are a qualifying patient…

Please take note of the expiration date listed on the right-hand side of your registry identification card. Once the card renewal application system is available, you will not be able to renew your card more than 90 days prior to its expiration. If you do not renew your card prior to the expiration date listed on the card, your card will no longer be valid. If you choose not to renew your card and your card is allowed to expire, please note that your associated designated caregiver’s card will be voided. Any intent to renew after the expiration date will require a new application for both you and your designated caregiver.

If you renew your card prior to expiration and have a designated caregiver, your caregiver’s card is still active until his or her designated caregiver card’s expiration date.

To access the renewal application, you will need to enter your first and last name and your current card number.

For annual renewal, you will be required to submit similar information as was required in the original qualifying patient application. However, there are several documents that must be new or current:

You will need to obtain and submit a new, current physician certification.
You will need to obtain and submit a new, current photograph.
You will need to obtain and submit a new Patient Attestation Form signed and dated with the current date.
• You will need to obtain and submit current documentation of your SNAP eligibility. The document submitted must indicate your first and last name.

• You may need to submit a copy of your identification if your name has changed since your last application.
