Belle lapsed for a good two weeks, renewed.
Well title pretty much says it all....
My wife just got her doctor re certification yesterday but I'm not sure if I should file a renewal application with LARA or a new application because her card technically expired a few days ago so I don't know which form to file with the state. LARA's website claims if you use the wrong form it will cause a delay in receiving your new cards and I don't really want that to happen.
The doctor filled out a new application form with his info on it so I'm assuming they know what they're doing but I wanted to be 100% sure before I pack everything together and send off a new application and wind up having it denied b/c the state wanted a renewal form instead....all seems like petty bullshit to me that shouldn't amount to a denial in my opinion since they're getting the same damn information on either form but I figured I'd double check just to be safe.
if you let it expire you can't renew, and you have to fill out a NEW apication form.
...then I am completely wrong. lol. sorry. Thought she just did it in spring, she must have started it that way and doc straightened her out. We had a patient that has expired and he went to his chiropractor yesterday. I pulled the exact form I just posted link to and filled out his info and faxed it to the doctor. The chiropractor actually said his son signed the original and his son no longer works there. (Which is shady as fuck on several levels, but he still had me fax it there - so obviously the father chiropractor wanted the proof for some reason. anyway I thought all of that shit was very yooper odd). Not sure how it all went down, but patient went to his real doctor and got him to sign it. The whole time I am thinking, how the fuck is this dude getting all this done on a Saturday? Long story short, I better ask him if he knows where his docotr lives, cuz he needs to talk him into that shit again with the correct forms. lmao.
LOL....yooper odd. You nailed that one Glad .

I JUST went thorgh this, and was told that if you let it lapse you have to fill out a new applcation. but that is just what ALTERNATIVE SOLUTIONS PLUS , INC told me
here is a quote form there paper that they sent me
"If you do not submit a renewal application PRIOR to the expiration of your current registry ID car, your card will be NULL and VOID as of the expiration date. After the expiration date, you can no longer submit a RENEWAL application, you can however, submit a NEW application"

Thx everyone. I went ahead and filled out the new application form instead of the renewal....really stupid for LARA to have 2 forms for this shit considering the only difference at all whatsoever is the renewal has a spot for the patients existing card number.
makes sense to me...
i'm pretty sure i lapsed last year and about 3 weeks later just did a renewal and all was fine...
i'm sure they know that enough people at this point don't fucking know, lol
but i would go with the more logical.. new app over renewal if lapsed.
When I went for my renewal recently, the nurse asked me if I had expired mentioning we would couldn't use the renewal paperwork if I did. I wasn't expired so no big deal. Maybe it's one of those rules that are on the books as strict and rigid but the department itself has some leeway for the time lapse since they are usually running behind a bit. So if ur within a few weeks they don't punish you for it.
