Or. Admin. R. 333-008-0023 - Patient Application Review Process

(1) The Authority must review a patient application to determine if it is complete.
(2) If an applicant does not provide all the information required in OAR 333-008-0020(1) or pay the applicable fee the Authority will reject the application as incomplete.
(3) If an applicant does not provide all the information required in OAR 333-008-0020(2) and (3), the Authority must notify the applicant of the information that is missing and allow the applicant 14 calendar days to submit the missing information.
(4) The Authority may verify the information on each application, verify any accompanying documentation submitted with an application, or request additional information from the applicant or other individuals named on the application.
(5) If the Authority is unable to verify that the applicant's attending provider meets the definition under OAR 333-008-0010 the applicant will be allowed 30 days to submit a new APS or written documentation from an attending provider meeting the requirements of these rules. Failure to submit the required attending provider documentation is grounds for denial under ORS 475C.783(8) and OAR 333-008-0035.
(6) If an applicant fails to submit information necessary for the Authority to verify information on the application, fails to submit information necessary to verify any accompanying documentation submitted with an application, or fails to cooperate with the Authority in obtaining information related to the application review process, such as but not limited to refusing to sign a disclosure authorization within timeframes established by the Authority, the Authority will reject the application as incomplete.
(7) An applicant whose application is rejected as incomplete may reapply at any time. If the individual reapplies within a year the application fee may be applied toward a new application.
(8) Upon receipt of a complete application, including payment of the required application fee, the Authority must issue a receipt to the applicant verifying that a complete application has been received. A receipt issued under this section has the same legal effect as a registry identification card for 30 days following the date on which the receipt was issued to the applicant. A receipt is only valid for the individual that submitted the application and not a proposed designated primary caregiver, proposed organization or facility caregiver, or proposed PRMG.
(9) The Authority shall approve or deny an application within 30 days after receiving a complete application.
