Federal law allows states the option of providing full Medicaid coverage to certain women diagnosed with breast or cervical cancer, including pre-cancerous conditions. This Medicaid option is available to certain women diagnosed through the Ohio Department of Health (ODH.) The Ohio Department of Medicaid operates this program in tandem with ODH. Benefits are issued through the Ohio Medicaid program.
Please note, if you receive coverage through Family Planning Services (FPS), FPS is not full-coverage Medicaid. It is a limited services program. BCCP covers medical, prescriptions, vision and dental services.
- The full Medicaid primary and acute care benefit package (benefits are not limited to cancer treatment)
- Service delivery is provided through Medicaid fee-for-service (FFS)
