Will Medicaid or Medicare Cover Medical Marijuana?

Will Medicaid or Medicare Cover Medical Marijuana?

While medical marijuana has been legal in the state of Florida since 2016, there are still some issues surrounding health insurers like Medicaid and Medicare not covering costs related to medical marijuana.

Despite the legalization of medical marijuana in most states throughout the nation, it’s still classified by the federal government as a “Schedule 1 controlled substance.” This means that technically medical marijuana is still considered “illegal” and cannot be cover by insurance like Medicaid and Medicare.

Cannabis Treatments Medicaid Will Cover

There are alternative cannabis treatments that Medicaid and Medicare do cover: Dronabinol and Epidiolex. Both treatments are FDA-approved prescription medications and are fully legal.

Dronabinol is used to help people with AIDS and cancer treatments, stimulating appetite and reducing the occurrence of a phenomenon called wasting.

Meanwhile, Epidiolex is a non-synthetic cannabis treatment used to help prevent seizures and is often prescribed to patients with childhood epilepsy.

How to Get Medical Marijuana in Florida

To get medical marijuana in Florida, you’ll need to have a medical marijuana card. Dr. Bernard, a Marijuana Doctor in Palm Coast, Florida, can qualify you to be able to apply for a card from the state of Florida, after evaluating your qualifications for the card.

The eligibility for a medical marijuana card requires the patient to be diagnosed with a qualifying medical condition approved by the Office of Medical Marijuana Use.
