Colombia includes medical cannabis in mandatory insurance coverage

The government also revalidated medical conditions where medical practitioners have found cannabis to be effective reports Mugglehead

Colombians who are in need of medical cannabis will get their pot covered by the country’s public health system.

Last week, the Colombian Minister of Health reaffirmed the inclusion of medical cannabis in the list of mandatory insurance-covered medications as of January this year.  On Dec. 30, Resolution 2808 was signed by the Minister of Health which integrates the plant along with other government-funded medications.

The government also revalidated medical conditions where medical practitioners have found moderate to strong evidence that cannabis is an effective treatment. These medical conditions evaluated by the IETS (Technical Institute of the Health Sector) include chronic and neuropathic pain, oncology pain, sleep disorders, epilepsy and fibromyalgia.
