With insurance companies unable to fund CBD many patients are stranded with other medications
Twelve months since the provisional licenses were given out in Texas. Now two of those companies are giving back to help patients more.
The companies have teamed up with Texas Epilepsy Foundation to help qualifying patients who struggle with the cost of medical CBD oil.
The insurance companies are prevented from coving CBD oil due to federal restriction so people that qualify for treatment have to fund the CBD themselves.
While many people find they have fantastic results from the CBD as opposed to their standard medications, often the long term costs simply override their preferred choice.
This is why the Compassionate Use Patient Assistance Program has been formed, Compassionate Cultivation and Knox Medical are both donating to the program.
Morris Denton, CEO of Compassionate Cultivation said “I know there are a lot of people out there who wouldn’t be able to afford this medicine who really, really need it and could really, really benefit from it.”
He hopes with the Compassionate Use Patient Assistance Program more people in Texas will be able to afford the help they need. Compassionate Cultivation has also committed to donating profits from merchandise sales to the program.
Patients are able to apply for or donate to the program on the Texas Epilepsy Foundation’s website.
