Or. Admin. R. 333-008-0040 - Annual Renewal

(1) A patient shall register on an annual basis to maintain active registration status by submitting:
(a) A renewal application prescribed by the Authority;
(b) An APS signed by the patient's attending provider within 90 days prior to the expiration date of the patient's current card, reconfirming the patient's debilitating medical condition and that the medical use of marijuana mitigates the symptoms of the patient's debilitating medical condition, except as provided in section (2) of this rule; and
(c) The additional information and fees required in OAR 333-008-0020 except that government issued photographic identification for a grower, caregiver or patient is not required to be resubmitted if the applicant previously submitted identification that is unexpired at the time the renewal application is received and the same caregiver or grower is being designated on the patient application as the previous year.
(2) A patient who meets the following criteria and provides documentation of meeting the criteria in accordance with instructions on the renewal application form is not required to submit an APS as described in subsection (1)(b) of this rule:
(a) Has been assigned a total and permanent disability rating for compensation that rates the veteran as unable to secure or follow a substantially gainful occupation as a result of service-connected disabilities as described in 38 C.F.R. 4.16; or
(b) Has a United States Department of Veterans Affairs total disability rating of 100 percent as a result of an injury or illness that the veteran incurred, or that was aggravated, during active military service and who received a discharge or release under other than dishonorable conditions.
(3) A renewal application may be submitted by mail at PO Box 14450, Portland, OR 97293-0450 or in person at the OMMP drop box located at 800 N.E. Oregon St., Portland, OR 97232 or submitted electronically through the Authority's electronic application system available at https://ommpsystem.oregon.gov/ along with accompanying documentation.
(4) Between 60 to 90 calendar days prior to expiration, the Authority shall notify the patient of the upcoming expiration date.
(5) If a renewal application and accompanying information is not received by the expiration date on the patient's card, the patient's card and all other associated OMMP identification cards, if any, are expired.
(6) Upon receipt of a complete renewal application, including payment of the required application fee, the Authority must issue a receipt to the applicant verifying that a complete renewal 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.
(7) The Authority shall review and verify the renewal application information in the same manner as specified in OAR 333-008-0023 and 333-008-0025 and shall reject as incomplete, approve, or deny the application in accordance with OAR 333-008-0030 to 333-008-0037, as applicable.
(8) If a patient has submitted a complete renewal application and paid the applicable fees prior to the patient's card expiring but the Authority has not yet issued the patient a renewal card, for purposes of the Oregon Medical Marijuana Act the patient and any of the patient's designees if designated on the prior registration for that patient will be considered by the Authority to have valid cards until the Authority acts on the renewal application.
