Step 1: Forms
To begin, patients will need the Physician Certification Form completed by an MD or DO in good standing in the state of Missouri.
For patients looking for the standard recommended dose of four (4) ounces per month, use the Standard Physician Certification Form.
Patients requiring more than the standard four (4) ounces should use the Alternative Physician Certification Form, and are required to submit two of these forms, completed by two different physicians, with the same qualifying medical condition selected on both forms. If the physicians’ recommended amounts listed on the forms are inconsistent, the patient will be allowed the lesser of those two amounts.
Patients that are under the age of 18 will also need to complete and submit a Parent/Legal Guardian Consent Form with their application.
Applying caregivers will need a Patient Authorization Form and the patient’s license number, which the patient will receive once their application is approved. This number will begin with PAT.
Step 2: Register
To complete an application, patients will need to register with the Complia application portal.
Click on the Patient/Caregiver Application Registration blue box located under the photograph to apply for your identification card. If a “Warning-Exiting Site” pop-up box appears, click “Yes” to proceed to the registry. Only applications submitted through the on-line registry will be accepted.
