Frequently Asked Questions

What does this mean for existing patients who have an ID card?

Patients with an MMCC ID card can continue to use the MMCC ID card until it expires. The expiration date is located on the front of the MMCC ID card. Beginning April 1, 2019, an MMCC ID card will be required for purchase at all licensed Maryland dispensaries.

What does this mean for existing patients who don’t have an MMCC ID card?

If you are a registered patient and you don’t have an ID card, you have two options: 1. Submit a renewal application to MMCC for a $50 fee. The renewal registration will expire 3 years from the date of renewal. Beginning March 1, 2019, any patient may submit a renewal application; or 2. Order an MMCC ID card for a $50 fee. This card will expire on the date your current registration expires.

How do I renew and what does it mean?

Beginning March 1, 2019, to renew your registration, log into your existing MMCC account and click on the Renew Registration tab. You will be prompted to answer a number of questions. If your address has changed, you must update your address and you will be required to upload a current Proof of Maryland Address. Once the Commission has your renewal application, they will review it and notify you via email of approval.

How do I order an ID card without renewing?

To order an ID card, log into your MMCC account and click on the “Order ID Card” tab. Your MMCC ID card will expire on the date of your current registration.

How long until I receive my MMCC ID card?

Due to the anticipated high volume of MMCC ID card orders and registration renewals, the MMCC is unable to guarantee a delivery date for the card. However, a temporary ID will be emailed once a new patient has been certified, or an existing patient with a valid provider certification orders a card or renews their registration. This temporary ID will be valid for a period of 90 days. Each patient will have the option to print the temporary card when logging into your MMCC account.
