Friend just got his card, 20 days. (Not business days)

 

If a card expires before sending in renewal, is it still considered a renewal? His new card shows March 22, 2016 as issue date.

A renewal would show the date from the earlier card as the issue date. Since it doesn't, that is a new card and not a renewal.

When you renew your card do you need to get another doctors rec?

 

"Another doctors rec" as in "a different doctors rec"? No.

 

"Another doctors rec" as in "a new rec"? Yes.

I think if you have a condition that will not get better and it can be proven you should be able to get morethan a 2 year card.

Never had a problem? You are lucky. I've had my card delayed several times in years past. One time it was for months. 4 months. Even talked with an attorney for that. When you do have a problem it feels pretty good to have done it all the right way, the best way. The attorney I saw when my card was delayed expressed how smart it was to have used certified mail. 

There's no way you will make a good case for not sending your paperwork in using certified mail. It's the best way to go.
