Maine: Require Insurance to Cover Medical Marijuana Expenses

Posted by on March 17, 2017

Legislation is pending, LD 1064, to require health insurance policies to cover expenses related to the physician authorized use of medical cannabis.

The measure states, “A carrier offering a health plan in this State shall provide coverage for marijuana for  medical use for an enrollee who has received certification for the medical use of marijuana from a medical provider.”

The purchase of medical cannabis is a significant expense for many patients, particularly those dealing with chronic conditions for which cannabis-related products provide relief. Just as health insurance provide financial assistance to offset other medical and health-related expenditures, these policies should also address the medical use of marijuana.
