Hall wrote that the pharmacist repeatedly and loudly asked her why she needed the prescriptions, which almost brought her to tears.
Hall says the pharmacist did not give her a reason for the refusal and he refused to give her back the doctor's prescription note so she could have it filled at another pharmacy.
Additionally, Hall also wrote that she is one of the lucky ones, explaining that, unlike some other transgender individuals, she has a great support system and left the encounter physically unscathed.in terms of her support system and how that encounter might have played out for someone else. In an article posted to ACLU's website Thursday, Hall wrote about how she was at the point where she would soon start seeing her body reflect her gender identity.
"My doctor ended up having to call the prescription into the local Walgreens, where the medication was filled without question", Hall said. But after her story hit the media with a little help from the ACLU, the pharmacy chain is finally apologizing. "His actions did not reflect the company's values or commitment to "inclusion, nondiscrimination and the delivery of outstanding patient care", CVS said in its statement".
"We also apologize for not appropriately following up on Ms. Hall's original complaint to CVS, which was due to an unintentional oversight", he said in the email.
Hall, like Arteaga, filed a complaint with the Arizona Board of Pharmacy, according to her post.
"Measures should be in place to ensure no other customer is humiliated like I was", she wrote.
After Arteaga complained to the pharmacy board about a Walgreens pharmacist denying her a miscarriage-related prescription because of personal beliefs, the agency began an investigation. I felt like the pharmacist was trying to out me as transgender in front of strangers. After years of working to affirm my identity in a world where transgender people are questioned constantly about how well they know themselves, the pharmacist refused to fill one of the prescriptions needed to affirm my identity.
The pharmacist allegedly refused to return the paper with the prescriptions.
After she called her doctor's office to explain what happened, the office contacted the pharmacist, who continued to refuse to fill the prescription or explain why. Hall's doctor's office sent a new prescription to a Walgreens, where it was filled.
The transgender woman filed a complaint with CVS, which she said went ignored.
Employees are required, however, to have another pharmacist or manager handle the prescription so that the patient's needs are met "in a timely manner". The law doesn't require the pharmacy to transfer the order, but company policies can vary, according to the Arizona Republic. The situation embarrassed her and cost the pharmacist his job.
