Prescription

Can my doctor refuse to fill my prescription for diabetes unless I get the covid test? Is this legal?

This might depend on where you live.  It is possibly legal, but also likely unethical.  

Did your doctor give you a specific reason for refusing medication without a COVID test?

Is this a prescription you are trying to fill by phone?  If it's a med you've been taking, there's no reason to see the physician in person.  Is there something in the medication that might harm you if you have covid?  I can see, for example, that a doc might be wary of blood thinning meds, and there are a ton of supplements, foods, and drugs that have some effect on that, for someone with covid and its clotting action.  Did you ask why?
