Twenty-eight states mandate some form of insurance coverage for off-label pharmaceutical use, and the trend is accelerating. In 1997, 11 states implemented off-label coverage provisions. Such laws typically forbid coverage denials based on grounds that an indication has not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration.
