While access to online medical cannabis is increasing due to telemedicine platforms that make getting a Medical Document hassle-free (and from the comfort of your own home), we recognize that finances can hinder patients’ ability to purchase cannabis.
While there are some systems in place to help ease the burden of purchasing your cannabis, such as our Compassionate Pricing Program as well as claiming medical cannabis on your tax return, we also work with Veteran’s Affairs Canada (VAC) to help cover some of the cost of veterans’ medicine. Here’s how:
VAC covers up to a maximum of $8.50 per gram, which applies to both oil and dried flower. For qualifying veterans, we cover the remaining cost per gram. VAC also covers up to $300 every three years towards the purchase of a vaporizer. Oil cartridges and vape pens are covered as well, but only on an individual approval by Medavie Blue Cross.
