Steps to Licensure
Step 1: Forms
Notice: Electronic physician certification forms are available for verified physicians and nurse practitioners to submit for qualifying patients. If your physician/NP has already submitted an electronic form, a tutorial is available here to assist you with submitting the electronic form within your patient application.
To begin, patients will need the Physician Certification Form completed by an MD, DO or NP in good standing in the state of Missouri.
Patients requiring more than the standard six (6) ounces per month will need one (1) physician certification form completed by an MD, DO or NP certifying them for an increased amount above the standard six (6) ounces.
Patients that are under the age of 18 will also need to complete and submit a Parent/Legal Guardian Consent Form with their application. This form must be completed and signed by the Parent/Legal Guardian that is listed in the minor patient’s application. Once the minor patient’s application has been approved, this Parent/Legal Guardian will be required to complete and submit a caregiver application.
Applying caregivers will need a Patient Authorization Form and the patients ID card 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 department’s secure electronic registration portal.
Step 3: Application
Once patients have registered, an application can be completed by logging into the Complia portal, clicking “+Create New Application” and “New Patient”.
Once caregivers have registered, an application can be completed by logging into the Complia portal, clicking “+Create New Application” and “New Caregiver”.
Renewal Application Information
- Current ID card holders will be sent notices at intervals of 60, 45, 30 and 15-days prior to the ID card expiration date. These notices will be sent from the online registry portal to the email address used when registering for and logging into the portal. The window for submitting a patient or caregiver renewal is 60-days prior to, but no less than 30 days before, the expiration date. The system will not prohibit the submission of a renewal after the 30 day window, however the Department has 30 days from submission to process an application. Therefore we cannot guarantee a renewal that is received in this time frame will be processed prior to the ID Card expiration date. Please wait 24 hours following the receipt of a 60-day ID card renewal notification before submitting the renewal application in the online registry portal.
