BuyWell is pleased to announce that it’s issued its first guaranteed issued extended health care coverage for medical cannabis.
BuyWell Care members can receive access to a team of doctors, naturopaths and other healthcare practitioners. Customers will also receive additional features of the program including earning loyalty points on their medical cannabis purchases.
Joshua Kenny was the first patient and his policy went into effect January 1st, 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 in Ontario residents and will be expanding their service across Canada at the beginning of Q1, 2019. Coverage will include treatments incorporating medical cannabis oils, dried flower and gel capsules.

The coverage is currently available to all Canadians regardless of pre-existing condition. Coverage does not require members to switch out of their current insurance companies to access BuyWell Care’s benefits.
“We are thrilled to be bringing this coverage product to the Canadian market at a time when many Canadians are looking to add medical cannabis as part of their treatment regimen.” said Sweeny D’Souza of BuyWell Care. She added, “The ability to save Canadians money on their medical cannabis products and a provide a patient-coverage solution which requires no out-of-pocket expenses is truly a Canadian first.”
