Australian Medical Cannabis Company Entoura Launches DVA Funding Online Tool
Melbourne-based Entoura Pty Ltd is proud to announce a proprietary digital solution for submitting applications for Department of Veterans’ Affairs funding to cover the cost of medicinal cannabis treatment. Entoura’s simple automated process for doctors and specialists is free of charge, and allows them to easily generate a funding application for their DVA patients.
Entoura is committed to improving Veterans’ health and recognises the unique needs of Australia’s Veteran community and the desire for treatment options, which may include medicinal cannabis if there is some evidence that it has a therapeutic impact.
The path to securing DVA funding for medicinal cannabis can be onerous for both patients and doctors. Entoura has created this tool as a means of cutting through red tape and finding a faster route to supporting the health needs of our Veterans.
● Entoura launches free automated online tool for doctors and specialists to apply for patients’ DVA funding to cover the cost of their medicinal cannabis treatment

Clare Barker, General Manager Entoura: “Entoura’s online tool to generate the application for DVA funding of medicinal cannabis is a first for Australian prescribers. The tool ‘demystifies’ the application process for those doctors who are looking to improve their patients’ quality of life by facilitating funded access to medicinal cannabis. Designed to cut through the red tape and the time-consuming process of applying for DVA funding, this tool is a simple step that ensures all the DVA requirements are met. We believe this is an important way that Entoura can provide much needed support to veterans and their doctors.“
Professor Ian Brighthope, founding president of the Australasian College of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine (ACNEM) says: “Veterans suffer stress, pain and anxiety both on the field and on return home. It is vitally important that they have ready access to medicinal cannabis, which is invaluable in the management of the many conditions that veterans suffer. Medicinal cannabis is very effective, has very few side effects and is not addictive. Properly prescribed, medicinal cannabis can greatly enhance a veterans quality of life”.
Any doctors or specialists requiring help in submitting the application can register for the https://ecs.entoura.com.au/login-register/Entoura Cannabis Support Portal.
