TORONTO, Jan. 8, 2019 /CNW/ - BuyWell is pleased to announce that it has issued its first guaranteed issue extended health care coverage plan for medical cannabis.
Joshua Kenny of Toronto was the first patient and his policy went into effect January 2nd, 2019.
Kenny said, "As a medical cannabis patient for over 3 years, the decision to use BuyWell Care's Medical Cannabis Coverage was obvious. The fact that it saved me money on prescription medication that I was purchasing anyways, plus the added support, discount and reward points made it an easy decision."
BuyWell Care is accepting patient enrollment from Ontario residents and will be expanding their service across Canada through 2019. Coverage will include treatments incorporating medical cannabis oils, dried flower and gel capsules.

She added, "The ability to save Canadians money on their medical cannabis products and a provide a patient-coverage solution with no out-of-pocket expenses is truly a Canadian first."
