Registration Process

Step 1. Schedule Appointments with Two Physicians

  • Identify the two physicians that will confirm the palliative use of marijuana is in the minor patient’s best interest.
    • One of the physicians must be the patient’s primary care provider.
    • The other physician must be board certified in an area of medicine involved in the treatment of the debilitating condition for which the qualifying patient will be certified.
  • One of these two physicians must log into the medical marijuana registration system (BizNet) and certify that the patient has one of the qualifying medical conditions listed above. The process for physician certification can be found at: http://www.ct.gov/dcp/mmp-physician.
    • This physician will ask you for a valid email address and primary telephone number that the DCP can use to communicate with you about the minor’s registration.
  • The second physician must provide you with a letter confirming that the palliative use of marijuana is in the patient’s best interest.

Create a Biznet Account

Step 2. Complete the Patient Registration Process

After your scheduled physician appointments, you will receive an email from the DCP notifying you that the patient has been certified with the program. You must now complete the registration by:

  • Visiting https://www.biznet.ct.gov/DCP-MMRP and clicking Create New Account to establish your BizNet account. Video walkthroughs for this process are available below.
  • Next, log-in using the email and password you used when registering.
  • Select “I am a Patient” and provide the minor patient’s date of birth and the email address associated with the account.
  • You will now see a pre-filled form with the patient information as entered by the certifying physician. If any of the information is not accurate, please contact the physician’s office to correct it.
  • After confirming the minor patient’s information, select the dispensary facility from which you intend to purchase medical marijuana from the drop down list.
  • Next, you will need to fill-in information about yourself as the patient’s caregiver.
  • Finally, select a payment method. The fee for a minor patient is $100. (Note: Paying by credit card expedites the registration process.)

Activate Your Account

Step 3. Complete the Caregiver Registration Process

  • After completing the minor patient’s registration, click on Home at the top of the screen and then select “I am a Caregiver” to move into the Caregiver portion of the registration.
  • At this point, you will see a pre-filled screen with the patient’s information entered by the physician as well as the caregiver information entered by yourself on the patient’s application.
  • You will be asked to answer a few questions confirming your understanding of the role of a caregiver and your willingness to act as a responsible caregiver.
  • Next, you will be asked to upload proof of identity and residency documents as well as a photograph of yourself. (See examples of acceptable documents listed below.) You do not need to provide a photograph of the minor patient.
  • You will also be asked to upload the letter from the minor patient’s second physician that confirms the patient will benefit from the palliative use of marijuana.
  • Finally, you must select a payment method. The fee for a caregiver is $25. (Note: Paying by credit card expedites the process.)

Step 4. DCP Reviews the Application

  • Once the patient and caregiver applications are submitted with payment, the DCP will review the applications within 15 business days.
  • If approved, you will receive a 30-Day Temporary Registration Certificate email. This may be used in place of your registration card until it arrives by mail.  If there is any issue, the DCP will contact you identifying the information that is missing.
  • The DCP will mail a medical marijuana registration card for the caregiver within 30 days of approval.
  • Minor patients will not be receiving ID cards. The email confirmation and your caregiver card can be used as proof that the minor patient is registered. In addition, law enforcement has secure access to the registration system should need to confirm the patient’s status arise.
