If you’ve determined that you meet the criteria for the program, the next step is to complete and submit a patient application to Delaware Health and Social Services. The application form is available online here, but please note that all applications must be submitted by mail. The main sections of the application are as follows:
Patient Information: This includes basic contact and demographic information for the patient, along with an attestation that you agree to follow the rules of the program.
Physician Certification: This section must be completed by your physician. It confirms that they are licensed to practice medicine in Delaware and that they’ve fully evaluated your medical condition.
Patient Release Request: This authorizes Delaware Health and Social Services to contact your doctor for the purposes of verifying the information provided in your application.
Proof of Residency: You must include a legible copy of your Delaware Driver’s Licence or State-issued ID card.
Application Fee: A required processing fee of $125 is payable by check or money order.
Once your patient application is fully prepared, please carefully review to ensure that all information is accurate and complete before submitting. Any errors or omissions could result in your application being denied and will delay the process of obtaining your medical marijuana card. If your application is approved, your card will be issued to you by mail.
Note: An alternate application form for pediatric patients is available here.
*Disclaimer – In Delaware, medical records ARE required to show proof of an existing condition that is a qualifying condition of the state.
