When a patient is applying to become a registered cardholder, they must submit a Physician’s Statement for a Debilitating Medical Condition or a Physician’s Statement for a Debilitating Medical Condition for a Minor.
This written certification may be signed by any Medical Doctor (MD) or Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO) physician licensed in Montana. Certifications are good for up to one year from the date signed.
Additionally, the treating or referral physician must confirm they have assumed primary responsibility for providing management and routine care of the patient’s debilitating medical condition.
If a cardholder submits a Petition for Exception to the Monthly Purchase Limits, it must be signed by the same physician that signed the cardholder’s written certification.
