New Jersey

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.

N.J. Stat. Ann. § 45:14-67.1 (Enacted 2007).
