With the Republican-led Congress introducing its new health plan, the casino industry has asked legislatures to include gambling addiction among any mentioned health disorders.

Industry representatives sent a letter Tuesday to congressional leaders and U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price noting that gambling disorders are recognized under the Affordable Care Act's essential health benefits.

The industry says the recognition is needed to enable adequate research funding and ensure resources for people with gambling disorders.

The American Gaming Association, the U.S. casino industry’s main lobbying group, is among organizations that signed the letter.
