Is medicinal cannabis covered by my healthcare?

Following the landmark ruling in 2018, we have been able to treat our patients at the London Cannabis Clinic with medicinal cannabis. Cannabis can now be prescribed for use by doctors and we have highly qualified and skilled medical practitioners, all of whom have extensive experience in this field. Cannabis products offer a revolutionary way to treat a broad range of chronic pain complaints and there is a growing surge in popularity to try this form of treatment. As a result, a question we are often asked is: ‘is medicinal cannabis covered by my healthcare?’

There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question as it will depend upon your policy and insurer. Medicinal cannabis use is not generally precluded from insurance policies, however, many insurers veer away from covering chronic conditions (which medicinal cannabis is best placed to treat). If your healthcare does not cover your chronic pain and the use of medicinal cannabis, you may still be able to use it as a treatment option without seeing any increase in your premium.

The best way to answer to find out whether you can access medicinal cannabis is to get in touch with us via our website or by phoning us on 020 7118 0250. Once we understand your condition and your healthcare insurance, we can work together to find the best option for you. Whatever pain you’re experiencing and whatever it’s stemming from, we’re here to help you feel better. We operate with absolute confidentiality when handling your case, so you can feel completely at ease speaking to one of our team.

You’re not alone, we are here to help and we understand your pain. Together we can put you on the path to a happier, healthier life through a personal treatment plan designed especially for you. Get in touch today.
