A patient who is registered with the program must first designate you as a caregiver during the patient registration process. After the patient's registration has been approved by the Department of Health, the caregiver(s) must register with the department as well. The patient will have access to instructions for caregiver registration. To register with the department as a designated caregiver, you must be a resident of New York state and have a valid New York state Driver’s License or New York state Non-Driver ID.
