Veterans Coverage

Veterans Coverage

Aurora Veterans Program and Active Military Discount for Medical Cannabis

We’re honoured to support Canadian veterans and those still actively serving. If you’re a veteran, you may be eligible for financial support for your medical cannabis through Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC). VAC provides reimbursements via Blue Cross to veterans across Canada towards both dried cannabis and its equivalent in other cannabis forms, up to 3 grams per day (or 90 grams per 30-day period) and up to $8.50 per gram.

At Aurora, we offer support beyond your VAC coverage

    Aurora will pay the cost difference above the maximum VAC reimbursement rate of $8.50 per gram on all of our Aurora®, MedReleaf®, and CanniMed® dried flower, oil products (including bottled oil, capsules, and oral sprays), edibles, and 510 and PAX® vape cartridges. 

    Our veterans support team is dedicated to providing the service and information you need to receive the many benefits that medical cannabis can provide.

    We will direct bill VAC on products eligible for reimbursement to minimize any out of pocket expenses.

    For products not currently covered by our veterans program, including INDOSE vapes and WMMC dried flower and oil products, Aurora offers a 25% discount on the list price of the itemThe VAC maximum of $8.50 per gram is direct billed to VAC, and the balance must be paid out of pocket.
     
     We will also price adjust all eligible products to $8.50 a gram for veterans who need to order more than what they are covered for under their VAC/BC policy. For example, if a veteran client has 3 g/day of coverage but requires 5 g/day of medication, Aurora offers adjusted $8.50 pricing on eligible products beyond the covered grams.

     Every 3-year period, veterans are eligible for up to $300 of VAC coverage towards the purchase of a vaporizer. We offer assistance with vaporizer selection and the reimbursement process.
