BuyWell.com, Canada’s first fully integrated Health and Wellness marketplace, introduces BuyWell Care: Canada’s first guaranteed issue Medical Cannabis Coverage Plan and Medical Cannabis Savings Calculator.
Through BuyWell Care, patients can use the Calculator to see how much they can save on their medical cannabis while purchasing coverage plans through the online application process.
The program will be directed under the guidance of Dr. Ira Price, MD, FRCPC, Medical Director of Synergy Health Services. BuyWell Care’s coverage will include treatments using cannabis oils, dried flower and gel capsules commencing December 12th, 2018.
Dr. Price commented, “BuyWell Care’s inclusion of coverage for medical cannabis is a true example of the paradigm shift that’s sweeping through the medical landscape. It’s a breath of fresh air.”
The Calculator is currently available at www.BuyWell.com/calculatecoverage. Consumers can input their recommended medical cannabis form and dosage to receive instant estimated cost savings based on the province in which they reside.
Based on research and findings from Synergy Health Services, BuyWell Care consumers may realize savings of up to $5,700 per year on their medical cannabis.
“For hard-working Canadians who rely on medical cannabis as part of their treatment regimen, BuyWell Care’s Medical Cannabis Coverage Plan provides a revolutionary way to save money on their expensive medication,” said Amanda LeBlanc, co-founder of BuyWell.com.
Coverages are available immediately in Ontario and will become available in other provinces beginning in Q1, 2019.
