Attorney generals from 35 states (including Florida), Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia are urging health insurers to review their policies for pain management treatment.
They hope this will spark higher use of alternatives to opioid prescriptions.
On Monday, West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey announced the bipartisan coalition's efforts in the ongoing fight to end opioid addiction.
Morrisey said in a news release that the coalition wants health insurers to avoid contributing unintentionally to the deadly problem.
Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi co-sponsors the effort.
Other co-sponsors include attorneys general from Arkansas, Kansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, New Mexico, Utah and Virginia.
