MinnMed Announces Price Reductions to make Medical Cannabis More Accessible to Patients
Special discount program launched for active military and veterans
Minneapolis, MN – Minnesota Medical Solutions (“MinnMed”), one of the two companies licensed by the state to cultivate, manufacture and dispense medical cannabis, has announced unprecedented price reductions that will make medical cannabis more affordable and accessible to Minnesota patients.
As part of its commitment to improve patient access to Minnesotans, MinnMed has reduced the prices of more than two-dozen medical cannabis products, some by more than 50%.
“My top priority as a physician is to ensure that patients have access to the medicine they need,” said Dr. Kyle Kingsley, Chief Executive Officer of Minnesota Medical Solutions and Vireo Health. “It pains me any time I learn of an individual who qualifies for medical cannabis but cannot afford to purchase these medications. The impetus for today’s decision to reduce prices is to improve patient access by making cannabis medicines significantly more affordable to Minnesotans struggling with life-threatening and debilitating conditions.”
Prices have been reduced across the Vireo Spectrum – including THC dominant, CBD dominant and balanced medications – so that all patients, regardless of their qualifying medical condition, could benefit.
“The substantial price reduction for ‘Starter Packages’ will allow first-time patients to try our medications at an extremely affordable price-point,” said Dr. Stephen Dahmer, Chief Medical Officer of Vireo Health. “This will significantly reduce the financial burden facing new patients trying to determine if medical cannabis could provide them with therapeutic benefits and improve their quality of life.”
These price reductions come on top of MinnMed’s existing compassionate discount program for low-income patients which provides those eligible for Medical Assistance, Minnesota’s Medicaid program, with an additional 15-percent discount. Moreover, under a newly added discount program, patients that are active-duty military or veterans will also be eligible for a 15-percent discount.
