How to Renew
Cardholders must renew registration every year. If the OMMP does not receive your complete renewal application by the current registration expiration date, your registration card will no longer be valid and you will no longer be protected from civil and criminal penalties.
Do not renew too early. The earliest you can renew is 90 days before your current registration expires. Your Attending Physician's Statement must be signed within that 90 day period, otherwise it will not be valid.
When it is time to renew, we will send a renewal packet including:
- Renewal instructions
- An application form that shows your current registration information
- An Attending Physician's Statement
- Current registration expiration date
To renew online
- Create an account or sign in to your existing account at: ommpsystem.oregon.gov.
- Complete the steps to renew your application.
- To be complete, your renewal application must include all of the items listed in the box below.

What to submit
OMMP Application Form
The system will pre-populate the information from your most current application and you will be able to make all necessary changes as you go through the online process.
Renewing by mail?
Review the application form you receive with your renewal packet. Check that all information is correct, including caregiver and grower/grow site (if applicable). If you need to make changes, mark them on the form. If you did not receive a renewal packet, complete a blank application form.
Your card and your caregiver's card (if you designated a caregiver) will be mailed to you.
If you designated a grower, the grower card will be mailed separately to the grower after the grower pays the grow site registration fee.

Information for Veterans
Some Veterans are exempt from submitting the Attending Physician Statement (APS) when renewing their card.
Submitting documentation proving that a veteran meets either of the qualifications below, means a veteran does not need to submit an APS when renewing:
- Proof that the applicant is a veteran, was discharged as honorable, and has a total disability rating of 100%. This example summary of benefits letter states all three items.
- OR -
- Proof that the applicant is a veteran, was discharged as anything other than dishonorable, and has been assigned total and permanent disability that rates the veteran as unable to secure or follow employment as a result of their service-connected disabilities. This example summary of benefits letter states all three items.
This exemption only applies to Veterans who are renewing their Medical Marijuana card. First time Veteran applicants must still see an Attending Physician and submit the required medical documentation.
You must also submit
In addition, Veterans need to submit all items listed above in the What to Submit section on this page.
If the Veteran will be their own grower or does not list a grower AND submits proof of having served in the Armed Forces of the United States the application fee will be $20.
A patient may request in writing that the expiration of his/her cards be extended if he/she is facing a personal hardship.
To request an extension:
Submit by mail the Extension Request form (pdf) before your current registration expiration date.
In order for an extension to be granted, the extension request must:
- Be received on or before the date the registration expires
- Include the reason for the extension request
- Be signed by the patient
