With that said, we do encourage you to reach out to your insurance provider to find out more.

Yes, Mettrum is an approved supplier of medicinal cannabis for Veteran Affairs. Upon registration, Mettrum will submit the appropriate documents required to apply for direct billing through Veteran Affairs on your behalf. Providing your K number as well as your approved medical diagnosis on your medical document will aid in the application process with VAC.
The process of setting up direct billing takes between 4-6 weeks, at which point Veteran Affairs will contact both the client and Mettrum to inform us of your approved claim and dosage amount. This will allow Mettrum to bill Veteran Affairs directly for your orders within your approved prescription amount.
