SelfHealthInsurance.com Has Just Added Two Helpful Articles to Their Website About This Important Topic
LOS ANGELES, CA / ACCESSWIRE / January 10, 2019 / The founders of SelfHealthInsurance.com, a health insurance quote website, are pleased to announce that they have just released two new articles to their website that discuss a current and important topic: health insurance options for medical marijuana.
To read both articles in their entirety, please check out https://www.selfhealthinsurance.com/will-health-insurance-pay-for-medical-marijuana/ and https://www.selfhealthinsurance.com/does-health-insurance-cover-cbd-oil/.
As a company spokesperson noted, the founders understand that as more people have obtained medical marijuana cards, there has been an increase in questions about health insurance options. This inspired them to research, write and post the two new articles that discuss if and when health insurance will pay for this treatment option.
In the first article, titled ''Will Health Insurance Pay for Medical Marijuana?'' it notes that since medical marijuana is used to treat medical conditions, many people understandably assume that their health insurance provider will cover the cost.
''While it might make sense for health insurance companies to cover the cost of medical marijuana, that is not the case. To date, this medication is not covered by any health insurance companies,'' the article explains, adding that even though there is a growing body of evidence that supports the medical benefits of cannabis, it is still classified as a Schedule 1 Controlled Substance under the federal government.
The article ''Does Health Insurance Cover CBD Oil?'' offers similar advice. As patients who use CBD oil for health issues are finding out first-hand, health insurance plans will not cover the oil. Like medical marijuana, CBD oil is considered a Schedule 1 controlled substance, and it is also not approved for use by the Food and Drug Administration.
Fortunately, the article notes, people who have learned that CBD oil may benefit them for medical reasons have a few options.
''One option is to purchase CBD oil from a dispensary and pay for the cost out of your own pocket. Another option is to use another medication that offers the same benefits as CBD oil but has been approved by the FDA,'' the article notes.
