When applying to VAC for coverage, submit a copy of your Medavie Blue Cross Card with a Summary of Assessment (SOA) or Disability Benefit Decision Letter for Good Faith Coverage (GFC). It can take 3-4 weeks to receive a decision. During this time, MyMedi.ca can provide interim coverage for medical cannabis under our Good Faith Coverage (GFC) Program for the first 30 days (up to a maximum of 90 grams) at no additional cost. Our goal is to ensure your coverage is seamless and completely supported throughout the entire process. 

Step 4

Veterans Coverage Approval

The MyMedi.ca team applies for VAC coverage with Medavie Blue Cross on your behalf (receiving a decision can take up to several weeks). Once a decision has been received, your account will be updated, and a member of our dedicated Patient Support Team will contact you. Requests to expedite a decision can be made directly to the Medavie Blue Cross General Client Line
at 1-888-261-4033.

Step 5


Once an approval from Medavie Blue Cross is received, you are ready to shop! MyMedi.ca will manage direct billing on your behalf with VAC through your policy! Monthly allotments covered through VAC reset every 30 days from the first order date on the current medical document.

Our Clinic Partners

We collaborate with several specilalty medical cannabis clinics with a focus on veteran patients. If you are a veteran seeking assistance with obtaining a new medical document, we have several partners who are ready to help.

Direct Billing to Veterans Affairs

Direct Billing to Veterans Affairs

  • For seamless billing, veterans (or their caregivers) should ensure the Medavie Blue Cross Insurance K-number (7 digits) is on their Registration Form. If you have any questions, please contact the MyMedi.ca Patient Support Team for help.
  • Your medical document must include the diagnosis or symptom being treated, for VAC to provide coverage and match the diagnosis on the VAC Summary of Assessment (SOA) or Disability Benefit Decision Letter.
  • Please provide a copy of your Blue Cross Card and Summary of Assessment (SOA) or Disability Decision Letter to be assessed for GFC. To access your SOA please login to your ‘My VAC Account’ https://www.veterans.gc.ca/eng/e_services or contact Veteran Affairs Canada for additional support at 1-866-522-2122.
  • Please note that Veteran Affairs Canada usually provides a response regarding coverage within 3 to 4 weeks, unless there are issues with your file which may lead to potential delays. Once we receive the response from VAC, a member of our Patient Support Team will contact you and share VAC’s decision.
  • If you have a medical authorization that exceeds 3 grams per day, you will need to apply to VAC for exceptional status.

Good Faith Coverage

  • If you are interested in placing an order before you receive your VAC approval, you may be eligible for Good Faith Coverage (GFC). To be eligible for GFC:
    • Please ensure you have submitted a copy of your Blue Cross Card and Summary of Assessment (SOA) or Decision Letter as stated above.
    • Please confirm that you have not placed an order with another licensed producer under a VAC policy within the last 30 days.
    • Once we receive this information, a Patient Support Team member will reach out to help you with the next steps for establishing GFC.
  • Please note: if your VAC application is denied, you will be responsible for paying any costs of orders placed under the GFC Program that are not covered by VAC.

Convenient Access & Quality Cannabis

  • Veteran patients can order their total allotment of medical cannabis every 30 days, starting from their first order date.
  • When placing an order on MyMedi.ca covered by an active VAC policy, the order total will always be $0 before it is fully completed, and no payment method will be required. If you encounter any issues placing your order, please contact us at 1-844-500-2040 or support@mymedi.ca.
  • As a veteran patient, you are eligible for up to $400 of coverage towards the purchase of a vaporizer every 3 years through VAC. We can help with vaporizer selection and the reimbursement process. If you have not ordered a vaporizer through VAC coverage before, you will need to obtain a prescription for one through your health care practitioner first.
