revealing birthdate for RX
I live in NY and a pharmacist refused to fill my prescription
because I would not give my age in a store full of people, stating
that he has my SS# on the back of my membership card.
I checked with Advoc. office and was told: There is no law that
you must give it. I went to a new pharmacist and they have a
big sign: You must give it.
I filed a complaint and am told by investigator: There is no
My HMO wrote me a letter saying: It is a law and you must give
it, that they follow the rules of CONNECTICUT (I am in the New
York chapter), and then in a subsequent phone conversation the
girl told me: It is FEDERAL which means nationwide.
Does anyone know if there is a LAW and if so, which law, in NEW
YORK stating I cannot get a RX filled UNLESS I GIVE MY BIRTHDATE?
Thanks for your help.
