How to Renew Your 329 Online Application

Our renewal process is similar to submitting your first application. Please contact your medical provider, make an appointment, you may want to discuss telehealth as an option to renew with your provider rather than physically going into his/her office.

Patients who are renewing their 329 registration may be eligible for a two-year renewal if:

  • The patient is renewing with the same physician/APRN who certified them in a previous year; and
  • The certifying physician/APRN states that the patient’s condition is chronic in nature; and
  • The certifying physician/APRN recommends that a two-year 329 registration is in the patient’s best interest.

We strongly advise that all patients consult with their certifying medical provider prior to applying for a two-year renewal to ensure that their certifying medical provider supports a two-year renewal. All fees are non-refundable.

Additional information:
