Guaranteed Access to Prescriptions
New Jersey law guarantees that women's birth-control prescriptions will be filled. Upon receipt of a valid and lawful prescription for a medication or device, a pharmacy must dispense it without delay. If the pharmacy does not have it in stock, the pharmacy must obtain it under its standard expedited ordering procedures. In the alternative, a patient may choose to have the prescription transferred to a different pharmacy that is reasonably accessible to the patient or have the prescription returned to her.
Any person who believes that a violation of this provision has occurred may report such violation to the New Jersey State Board of Pharmacy.
