TORONTO, May 22, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reformulary Group, Canada’s leading, independent drug plan management company, today announced it has signed MedReleaf as its first Licensed Producer of medical cannabis.

The agreement will provide subscribers of Reformulary’s Cannabis Standard – the first cannabis formulary in Canada – with preferred pricing options and will support the development of a database that captures real-world patient-reported data. This partnership is a major step for Canadian employers looking to navigate the process of covering medical cannabis.

“Our partnership with MedReleaf will ensure employers and individuals using Cannabis Standard receive evidence-based advice related to the use of medical cannabis, and high-quality medical cannabis at a preferred price,” said Helen Stevenson, Reformulary Group founder and CEO. “As cannabis becomes more mainstream in the medical world, it is critical that employers that choose to cover cannabis have expert guidance on how to include cannabis in their benefit plans.”

“The creation of the very first cannabis formulary in Canada demonstrates the evolution of medical cannabis and its broader acceptance as a viable treatment option and will enable employers to add medical cannabis on their benefits plans with greater confidence.” said Jason Fleming, Vice President HR MedReleaf. “Partnering with Reformulary Group is an opportunity for us to work collaboratively to enhance the understanding and facilitate the incorporation of medical cannabis into the workplace.”

This agreement comes on the heels of Reformulary Group’s announcement last week that it had created the Cannabis Formulary Committee, an expert group designed to review the best available evidence for the use of medical cannabis.
