I've also understood it that with my cash-only practice I'm not allowed to charge a Medicaid patient for services that are covered by Medicaid.  I have only a handful of these patients, so I've made the decision just not to charge them for their visit.  I have not had any problem ordering labs or prescribing medications for these patients.

Interesting !  In some states  one cannot see Medicaid patients and have them pay cash- illegal  I am told( is that true? Never saw it in print I admit)
 so,  it would be obvious they would try to get their prescriptions paid for who wouldn't   but the prescription coverage is connected to who wrote for it?? I am not helping you I am sorry  Let us  know
The system  gets  more bizarre daily   I confess I am at my wits end
