Medical marijuana: What you need to know
August 03, 2018
Effective October 17, 2018, Canada will be the first G7 country to federally legalize recreational marijuana. This has put a spotlight on medical marijuana and its effect on group benefits plans.
Any changes to group benefits plans are determined by each plan sponsor. At this time, no OTIP-administered group benefits plan provides coverage for medical marijuana.
For more information about what is covered under your plan, please refer to your benefits booklet.
