In New York, the question of whether medical marijuana is covered by insurance is currently under legislative review. A bill has been proposed in the 2023-2024 legislative session aiming to modify the state’s Public Health Law. This modification would categorize medical marijuana as a “prescription drug,” “covered drug,” or “health care service.” Should this bill pass, it could open the door for insurance programs, including Medicaid, Child Health Plus, EPIC, Essential Plan, and workers’ compensation, to cover medical marijuana. It is crucial to stay informed about the bill’s progress and seek advice from legal or healthcare professionals for the most recent updates.
