Guaranteed Access to Prescriptions
Maine law guarantees that women's birth-control prescriptions will be filled. Maine law and pharmacy regulations specify that a pharmacist may refuse to fill a prescription or dispense a medication only under certain circumstances. Permissible reasons for refusal include questions concerning the legitimacy or appropriateness of any prescription presented, the validity of photographic identification, or the identity of any patient presenting a prescription or any person acting on behalf of the patient.
