Renewing Your Medical Marijuana Card in Pennsylvania
Patients need to renew their medical card every year. You are not required to visit the same doctor as the first certification. An email will be sent out 60 days before your card expires, letting you know it’s time to renew.
- Sign in to the Medical Marijuana Patient Registry to make a payment or confirm your eligibility if you are requesting waiver of the fee.
- Schedule an appointment with Releaf Specialists. Visit one of our offices to update your physician certification. This appointment is typically shorter than your first visit. Once the physician has updated your certification, you'll receive an email letting you know your renewal is complete.
- Your new card will typically be mailed out within 10 days. When you receive your new card, you will be asked to update your file at the dispensary.
