Medical Cannabis Programs
CA Clinics is proud to support a range of programs in partnership with other organisations to advance the industry’s treatment options in Australia. We work with the TGA and their guidelines to ease access to medicinal cannabis treatments.
Rural & Remote
Rural patients have access to experienced specialists through telehealth, bulk billed consultations. This means accessibility of quality care to people regardless of location.
How to access medicinal cannabis treatments in rural Australia?
CA Clinics has gathered a database of Australian pharmacies who offer competitive pricing and attend to CBD therapies in remote areas. Alternatively, patients can choose to nominate their own local pharmacy.
CA Clinics recognises the unique needs of Australia’s veteran community seeking medicinal cannabis treatments for DVA and TGA supported conditions such as chronic pain.
Our Veteran Health Program is aimed at providing cost effective treatment options under the Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) framework.
We have aligned with Applied Cannabis Research to conduct studies on our veterans’ health responses to their personalised medicinal cannabis therapies, constantly striving to improve outcomes.
How CA Clinics' Veteran Health works?
Doctors who attend to Australian veterans can refer their patients to CA Clinics who will form the medicinal cannabis part of their therapy. This, we hope, will contribute to their whole-of-person care plan.
We will assess a patient’s case and take the extra steps to seek approval for the use and funding of their medicinal cannabis treatments from the Department of Veteran Affairs. In order for these approvals to come through successfully, we inform patients to attain a pain specialist support letter in addition to their Referral. On the right is a two-step process for this.
How to help your veteran patient
Discuss medical cannabis treatment options available to them and suggest that they arrange a 15 minute Screening Appointment with CA Clinics to better understand their suitability for CBD therapies.
If suitable, we book them in for an Initial Consultation with one of our doctors or specialists to assess their case, create a cannabinoid treatment plan and submit approval applications.
1. TGA application and approval
- Approved patients can start medication at own cost
- We then submit a DVA application
2. DVA application and approval
- We submit a detailed application on behalf of you and your patient citing their condition, specialist support and evidence supporting the recommended treatment
- If DVA approves, your patient may be able to access funded medication
