Lori Swanson sues to expand access to opioid addiction treatment drug

 


Seeking to expand access to one of the few drug treatments for opioid addiction, Minnesota Attorney General Lori Swanson took several steps Thursday to increase production of the drug, reduce prices and remove insurance barriers.

Joining attorneys general from 34 other states, Swanson sued Indivior, a Virginia-based drug manufacturer, to halt practices that have prevented the development of a generic version of its drug Suboxone.

Separately, Swanson wrote to Minnesota’s major health insurers, asking them to eliminate prior authorization rules that prevent some addicts from getting the drug.
