Use of medical marijuana for chronic pain is not new. However, getting an insurance company to pay for this expense as part of accident benefit claims hasn’t always been an easy road.

In this webinar, Charlene Lewin, a senior law clerk and licensed paralegal with nearly 30 years experience, will discuss the top four cases were Arbitrators have ordered that large insurance companies pay for an injured accident victim’s marijuana expenses.

In addition, Charlene will discuss how collateral benefit carriers are also getting on board to offer medical marijuana, especially in cases to combat chronic health conditions and reduce STD and LTD claims for carriers such as Manulife and SunLife.  She will also discuss how, when MVA benefits of $65,000 are exhausted, medical marijuana out-of-pocket expenses can be advanced in the tort claim.

This webinar will provide guidance on how to present your client’s claim in the ever-changing landscape of medical marijuana use.
