If you have an existing ACC cover and you are considering applying for extra funding for medicinal cannabis, please find below all the latest information and learn if cannabis is covered by your insurance.
Since the Medicinal Cannabis Scheme began in April 2020, unfortunately only a handful of applications for additional funding for medicinal cannabis via ACC have been approved, and only then through a complicated independent review process.
If you do wish to apply for additional ACC funding for medicinal cannabis please contact us for advice.
Health Insurance Pre Approval
If you carry health insurance, please contact your insurer prior to your consultation and apply for pre-approval. You will be asked to provide a copy of the consultation cost estimate and any other relevant medical information for your insurer to consider.
The Cannabis Clinic is a private health provider. We are also an affiliated contract provider with Southern Cross Healthcare and a NIB partner ensuring an easier pre-approval process for some consultation options. Please get in touch for more information.
