Subp. 2.

Payment for covered service.

If the health service to a recipient is a covered service, a provider must not request or receive payment or attempt to collect payment from the recipient for the covered service unless copayment by the recipient is authorized by Minnesota Statutes enacted according to Code of Federal Regulations, title 42, or unless the recipient has incurred a spend down obligation under part 9505.0065, subpart 11.
