Danish government expedites medicinal cannabis subsidy

Terminally ill patients who use medicinal cannabis to reduce pain symptoms will receive subsidies covering the full cost of their medicine from this month.

The new rule comes into effect earlier than expected, with the government and Danish People’s Party having passed a bill in March this year to establish the subsidy provision from January 1st 2019.

But the measure will apply from this month, the Ministry of Health said in a press statement on Monday.

“For patients who are dying and can benefit from medicinal cannabis towards the end of their time, we will now make sure they can receive the subsidy for the whole of 2018, applying the rule retroactively,” Minister for Health Ellen Trane Nørby said.
