What is an OCF 18?

In short, an OCF18 is a Treatment and Assessment Plan that describes the cause and nature of injuries that are a direct result of the motor vehicle accident and the treatments that are specifically for these injuries. An OCF-18 is important because it outlines assessments, examinations, or treatments that a facility or provider feels is required for ongoing management of the claimant’s recovery.

Many are unaware that cannabis can be covered through accident benefits. MMC was one of the first clinics to get cannabis covered by insurance benefits in Canada. Getting cannabis covered by accident benefits requires the submission of an OCF-18 to an insurer for pre-approval.

 

Why You Should Get Medical Cannabis on an OCF-18/Treatment Plan

An approved OCF-18 grants you a set monthly amount of insurance coverage for medical cannabis; this includes medical cannabis (dried, oil, capsules, etc), a vaporizer, and in some cases safe storage for your medical cannabis.

 

Now my OCF-18 is approved for cannabis, but how do I order?

First, you must choose and register yourself on a Licensed Producers web-page. MMC will assist you with this prior to the submission of your OCF-18.

Licensed Producers products can vary so it is essential that you monitor your Licensed Producers options prior to placing an order to ensure that they have your required strains in stock.

With an approved OCF-18 you can call or email MMC’s MVA department when you are ready to order each month (Every 30 days). Let us know what you would like to order from your Licensed Producer, and we will place & pay for the order. Please note, orders are only placed during business hours on Monday-Friday between 9 am and 5 pm EST.

 

What happens when my OCF-18 coverage runs out?

When you reach the end of your approved amount of cannabis coverage through your insurer, the MVA team at MMC can apply for another OCF-18 in hopes to extend your medical cannabis coverage.

Some other things to remember:

  • Keep a record of your Licensed Producer login information (ID number and password), we require this to place orders on your behalf through your online account.
  • Monitor the products/stock on your Licensed Producers web-page as it changes regularly.
  • Email or Call MMC’s MVA department and let us know what you would like to order before you run out of cannabis. If you find that you are running out well before your next order date, we can evaluate whether or not you need an increase in your prescription when that time comes.
  • You can order your full prescription once every 30 days. If your order falls on a date that is a statutory holiday or a weekend, your order will be placed on the next business day.

 

You can also call or email MMC with any questions you might have about Cannabis or your OCF-18…we are here to help.

    Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using? I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    The Beef and Vegetable Stir Fry recipe is one of the
    best dessert recipes for losing weight at home.
    Also you will end up feeling very hungry and
    consume a lot the very next time you receive your hands on some food.
    At the end of the afternoon (week, month, year, or decade), your body doesn’t care
    about your lack of planning.

    I do enjoy the manner in which you have framed this problem and it really does give me a lot of fodder for consideration. Nevertheless, coming from what I have witnessed, I simply just trust as the actual opinions pack on that people today continue to be on point and don’t get started on a soap box associated with the news du jour. All the same, thank you for this outstanding piece and even though I can not really agree with the idea in totality, I respect the perspective.

    Quite a good read. I just forwarded this on 5/13/2019 to a colleague who has been involved in some work of her own on this subject. To show her appreciation, he just bought me a drink! So, let me express my gratitude by saying: Thank you for the meal!
