Has Your Pharmacy Automatically Refilled Your Prescription Without Asking? We Want To Hear From You

Since we began covering the allegations that CVS pharmacists are being pressured into automatically filling prescriptions without customers’ consent, we’ve heard from a few readers who have experienced this problem with their pharmacy — not just CVS. We’d like to see just how widespread the issue is, and that’s where y’all come in.

So if you’ve never signed up for an automatic refill service — or if you were signed up for one without permission — we want to hear your story.

Shoot us an e-mail at tips@consumerist.com with “Pharmacy Refills” in the subject and tell us exactly what happened in your case. Any identifying details you share with us will remain confidential, including your name and the specific medications.

Even if you don’t write us, we suggest that you do file a complaint with your state’s pharmacy board. After all, it was only through consumer complaints that California regulators began their investigation into CVS.
