A bill has been reintroduced in the 2023-2024 legislative session to amend the state’s Public Health Law and recognize medical marijuana as a “prescription drug,” “covered drug,” or “health care service.” If approved, insurance programs like Medicaid, Child Health Plus, EPIC, Essential Plan, and workers’ compensation may provide coverage. It’s important to stay updated on the status of the bill and consult with legal or healthcare professionals for the latest information.
