Medical Cannabis Insurance is new in Canada, with many providers still flushing out their policies. A few companies like Sun Life and Green Shield already have clear guidelines for coverage, while many others we contacted are still qualifying on a case by case basis.
As of Sept 20, 2018, we were able to find 6 companies that are currently covering medical cannabis, and 2 more looking to cover it in the coming months. In all cases, companies we contacted reported that spending limits are set either through individual insurance plans, or through health spending accounts.
1. Green Shield Canada (GSC)
2. Sun Life Financial Canada
3. Empire Life
4. Manitoba Blue Cross
5. Alberta Blue Cross
