Motor Vehicle Accident Patient FAQs
1. How do I know if I qualify for medical cannabis coverage after my auto accident?
Do you currently have an open claim with your auto insurer based on injuries from an auto accident? Then you could be covered for treatment of your injuries.
If you’re still unsure, we always recommend reaching out to your legal team (if you have one) or directly to the adjuster assigned to your case. Or feel free to reach out to us and we’re happy to help.
2. What is an OC-F18? Why does it allow you to order for me?
An OCF-18 is a formal treatment plan that we (MMC) completes and submits to officially request coverage through your insurance company. By having an approved OCF-18, MMC can purchase your cannabis products and then be reimbursed by your insurance company. This treatment plan is completed with a combination of previous medical history, current injuries and ailments caused by your MVA and medical cannabis treatment suggestions.
The plan allows us to request coverage for our administrative services (completion of the OC-F18, education and care counselling), 3 check-ins by a experienced Nurse Practitioner to ensure your plan is as efficient as possible and a set amount of medical cannabis based on the amount our Nurse Practitioner recommended.
3. Is there a fee for your services?
We have an administrative fee of $200 that is only required to be paid if the OCF-18 treatment plan is declined by your insurance company, as your insurance company will pay us the fee if the plan is approved. We typically will request your legal team guarantee this $200 fee, but if you do not have a legal team, we can discuss your options on a case-by-case basis.
