The Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) established the Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority (OMMA) to oversee the medical marijuana program. OMMA receives and reviews all licensing applications related to medical marijuana.

State law requires OMMA to process patient license applications within 14 business days of the date the applicant submits it. OMMA will send applicants an email after staff reviews the application. For approved applications, it takes one or two more business days to print the patient license identification card. Then OMMA mails the card to the patient by regular U.S. Postal Service first-class mail.

If an application is incomplete due to unclear or missing information or documents, OMMA sends the applicant an email stating the reason(s) it is incomplete. Applicants can log back in to their account to make corrections once they receive this email (but not before).

If an application is reviewed and denied because all requirements have not been met, OMMA will mail a denial letter stating the reason(s) within 14 business days of submission.

The standard application fee is $100. Patients who provide acceptable proof of Medicaid (SoonerCare) or Medicare enrollment or status as a 100% disabled veteran will pay a reduced fee of $20. Application fees must be paid by Visa, MasterCard, or Discover credit or debit card. An additional credit card processing fee will be added to the transaction. These application and processing fees are non-refundable. The payment will not be refunded for applications not approved. 

Many retail stores have pre-paid MasterCard or Visa cards available for purchase. Applicants who do not have access to a personal credit card may purchase one of these pre-paid MasterCard or Visa cards and load the amount of the licensing and processing fees at the store. The card may then be used for the online transaction.

Step 1: Check to ensure the correct billing address and zip code for the credit/debit card is correctly entered.

Step 2: Check to ensure the credit card number, expiration date, and CVV code is entered in the correct fields and in the correct format.

Step 3: If the information entered in Steps 1 and 2 is correct, call the issuing bank using the phone number on the back of the card and ask them to investigate why the payment didn’t go through. The issuing bank can provide more information to help you resolve the problem.

Step 4: If the above steps are unsuccessful, try using a prepaid Visa, MasterCard, or Discover debit or credit card. Some prepaid cards charge an activation fee. Make sure to purchase a card with the correct prepaid amount that will cover the card activation, application and processing fees.
