Anyone know if Medicare pays for medical marijuana?

My insurance won't pay but I turn 65 next year n will be on Medicare. I'd sure like to get rid of these headaches.

No it's not covered by any insurance. It's legal here in Colorado (Medical & Recreational) Even though a Dr will prescribe it (Medical CBDs etc) it's not covered through insurance. The Medical card it's self is around $100.00 dollars but all it does is get you into the dispensaries where you can buy the product & it isn't cheap.

Have you tried Hemp products? They aren't as expensive & they help some people with pain, headaches etc. My Mom uses it for chronic pain.


I use CBD oil for headaches. Works great and is legal.
