Is it illegal to deny a patient a prescription because of an "unpaid" bill?

Just wondering if it is illegal for a doctor to do this, since patients can experience severe withdrawal symptoms and revert back to experiencing their original illness.
For a specific example, if the bills were being paid the whole time, but one of them arrives a day late and is put into collection by the secretary, and no one informs the patient?
Is it illegal and inhumane?
