Any Recent Card Renewals?


Recommended Posts

all my renewal cards have been based on my original application/issue date... no matter when i sent them in..

last year i sent mine in a little late (i shall not confess to how much time..but enough where this year it would be disqualified most likely).... and it was still reissued with the original issue date..11-18-09

Because it's cool that the very first bunch of us patients, that registered back in the very beginning, had a 4/20 date. It's an elusive, exclusive, group of brave individuals who jumped in first. You wouldn't even believe how different things were back then. LOL

 

We showed up in a Bus and walked in and put our apps in a cardboard box....I didn't have a money order so I just borrowed a stapler and stapled my $100 bill to my app and put in an envelope they gave me....I was at the front of the line right behind Renee Wolfe....HJ

I didn't ride the bus. But I was there on that very first day.

issued 11-18-09

expires 12-1 --10,11 and 2012

every year since 09

even the one i sent in late...

one of my patients sent in their renewal paperwork a full 7 months after she expired.... and they still issued her card on its original expiration... that was 2 years ago... her 2010 expiration i think....they (LARA) does not seem to want to allow that now... for some reason...

 

they always seem to expire on the first of the next month after its issued.. well that's been my experience... so far... i am just now within my 60 days prior for this year so i am going to the doctor next Friday.... so ill send this one in a full month early... since LARA seems to be nitpicking things..i kinda want to ensure i dot all my i's and cross all my t's...

if LARA processes your renewal app on 10-29, do you think your new card's expiration will be 12-1-13, or 11-1-13? obviously, 12-1-13 would be better, so i'm wondering if it's better to postpone the renewal to the month before expiration.

 

i hear turnaround time is way different now than a year ago, so that's why i'm seeking feedback from those with recent renewals.

my wife and I got our first card last year and it's expiration date is November first 2011 for both of us. although she sent her application in 2 months ahead of me. my wife and I saw the doctor first week of September this year. 2 days later we sent our information out at exactly the same time. I received my pt card the first week of October. 2 weeks later my wife's card arrives with my patient caregiver card for her. so I'm assuming they take care of patients first, then if you've given up your caregiver status your patient card and your patient caregivers card are issued next. still though, both of our cards expire on the same date of the date that was last year, except 1 year ahead, November 1st 2012 .

Thanks GrassMonkey! (assuming you meant "November first 2012" and "November 1st 2013"), that answers my question. So it seems that if you mail the renewal a little less than 2 months before expiration, the new card's expiration will be +365 days beyond the last expiration.

Just did that earlier this week and will be able to tell you how that is working real time.

we sent in my pt's card and my cg card, we got them in less than 21 days, we got them about 3 weeks before they were to expire, but the date was still the original date, we got our cards on like 9 16 it expires on 10-01, it says when it was issued and when it expires no date change! only thing dif this yr is we actualy have our plastic longer than 12 months in stead of like 6 months!!

 

 

Peace

Nice. So there's still hope for the 4/20's.

I'll add some dates to help clarify what i'm looking for. Say a card expires 1-1-13. If patient renews 11-2-12, patient wouldn't want the new card's expiration to be 12-1-13 because they'd be double paying for December 2012. Last year like phaquetoo noted, the expiration would be 1-1-14 -- but of course pt would not get card until the summer. With the new processing speed, it seems possible that the new card could possibly expire 12-1-13. So that's why I'm asking for feedback about the expiration date from people who recently received a card.

 

@GrassMonkey - this year you saw the doctor in Sept, and got your card in Oct, right? Are you saying the expiration date on that card is 11-1-2012?

 

@Restorium - I'll look forward to hearing about your new card's expiration date.

Not mine, just a close patient. I will post an update when the card arrives.

1st question: yes.

2nd question: no, the new expiration date is 11-1-13.

 

It looks like to me that once your expiration date is set, this will always be your expiration date, unless of course you were to let your card expire for a while then start over as new pt. Then I would assume your new expiration date would be whenever they issue you your new card.
