Doctors are protesting medicare change that would  let pharmacists deny opioid prescriptions. The opioid epidemic that is killing tens of thousands of Americans each year. The amount of opioids Medicare patients can have access to at any times. A policy that states that pharmacies need to reject certain prescriptions on the spot. Pharmacists would be allowed to deny payment at the register for certain type of prescriptions, while notifying the doctors who prescribed the drugs.
