As of September 12, establishing a patient account will be necessary to complete your application for participation in the Medicinal Cannabis Program and to renew your ID card.  Once your account is set up you will also be able to track your application status, check on your authorization period, pay for a new or lost ID card, and send messages to Customer Service.

Setting Up Your Patient Account

Start by reviewing the applicable patient portal account instructions (right panel on this page.) To set up your account on the patient portal, you will need the following:

  • The reference ID number and a registry ID number from the Authorizing Healthcare Practitioner Statement you received from your healthcare provider.
  • The name and address of an Alternative Treatment Center where you will be able to purchase your medicinal cannabis doses.
  • A recent full-face, front facing photograph 
    • taken within the last 60 days

    • taken with eyes open and facial expression neutral
    • taken without filters
  • Proof of New Jersey residency
    • A current New Jersey government-issued ID or two proofs of residency 
      • If you do not have a current New Jersey state issued ID reflecting your physical address you made provide two other proofs of residency from the list below:
        • a utility or cell phone bill from the last 90 days
        • a W-2, 1099 Statement, Form 1098, or other correspondence from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) or the New Jersey Division of Taxation from the last year that shows patient’s name and address (We do not accept a Form 1040 or Form 1095)
        • Property tax bill, jury summons, Social Security Administration documents, or other federal, state, or local government correspondence issued in the last 90 days that shows patient’s name and address
