CAREGIVER

What is a caregiver?


A caregiver with the medical marijuana program is an individual who can pick up medical marijuana at a dispensary on behalf of their patient(s). Caregivers are not the practitioner who certifies the patient.




Who can serve as a caregiver?


An individual 21 years of age or older, unless authorized by the department, can serve as a caregiver. Caregivers must register with the Department of Health and follow the instructions to complete a criminal history background check with the commonwealth's authorized vendor.




Who can have a caregiver?


Any patient may designate a caregiver if they so choose. All minors are required to have a caregiver. There are three categories of patients who do not get an ID card, and thus need not enter a dispensary. Instead, a caregiver registers on their behalf and visits the dispensary for them. These categories include: 1. Minors; 2. Adult patients who are home-bound; or 3. Adult patients who benefit from assistance (i.e. nonverbal, do not make their own medical decisions, etc.). Additionally, any adult patient who is registered and gets a medical marijuana ID card is also able to designate a caregiver by sharing their patient ID number with the caregiver before the caregiver registers.




What information do I need to become a patient's caregiver?


In order to register as a patient's caregiver, you must have a valid Pennsylvania driver's license or PA state-issued ID card. If the patient is already registered, you will need the patient's name, date of birth and patient ID number.




What is a caregiver profile?


Your caregiver profile contains all your relevant patient information. Each time you log onto the patient and caregiver registry, you will be able to access this information. This is where you will find your caregiver ID number, as well as all your personal information. Caregivers can update their address, phone number, and email address on this page and should make sure that all the information is current. By clicking the 'Manage Patients' tab, caregivers can view all the patients with whom they are associated.




Can I register as a caregiver for someone who is not a relative?


Adult patients can designate any individual as their caregiver. All caregivers must complete a background check. If you are a caregiver for a minor but not the patient's parent, legal guardian or spouse, you should be designated as a third-party caregiver by the patient or patient's legal guardian or spouse. It is recommended that you get an 'authorization to designate a third-party caregiver' form completed. A form can be downloaded from the caregiver's profile. Once completed, you can upload the form in your caregiver profile.




Can I be a caregiver if I have a criminal record?


All caregivers must complete a background check. Any criminal record will be reviewed prior to approval. You cannot be approved as a caregiver if you have been convicted of a criminal offense relating to the sale or possession of drugs, narcotics or controlled substances within the last five years.




Can a caregiver have more than one patient?


Yes. Caregivers may provide care for up to five patients.




How do I sign up or register a minor in the program?


Minors under the age of 18 require a caregiver to register on their behalf. If you are the minor's parent, legal guardian or spouse, you can register as their caregiver by selecting the appropriate caregiver option on the registration site. If you are not the minor's parent, legal guardian or spouse, it is recommended that an 'authorization to designate a third-party caregiver' form be completed. This form can be downloaded from the caregiver's profile. Once completed, you can upload the form in your caregiver profile.




I care for a patient with a disability. How can I register them for the program?


If the patient is under the age of 18, they are required to have a caregiver apply on their behalf. If a patient is 18 years of age or older and able to register themselves, they may do so. If they cannot, a caregiver may register for them.




Who is considered a caregiver?


The law defines a "caregiver" as an individual 21 years of age or older, unless otherwise authorized by the department, who is:

  • Designated by a patient;
  • A parent, legal guardian or spouse of a patient that is under the age of 18; or
  • Designated to be a caregiver by a parent, legal guardian or spouse.
All caregivers must register with the department and then follow the instructions that are provided to complete a criminal history background check. Any criminal record will be reviewed prior to approval. You cannot be approved as a caregiver if you have been convicted of a criminal offense relating to the sale or possession of drugs, narcotics, or controlled substances within the last five years.




How long does the caregiver approval take?


It can take four-to-six weeks after your fingerprint appointment to receive an answer regarding your caregiver application.
