How do I register myself with New York State after getting my certification from the doctor? Can I register in person?

After receiving your NY Certification from the doctor (usually within 24-72 hours post-appointment), we will provide you with a set of instructions for registration in the NYS online portal. This is required in order to receive your NY state issued Medical Card.

You can get started by making sure you have a NY.Gov account before your appointment, and if not, you can create an account here: You cannot register in person, as the process is done 100% online through the New York State website.
