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.
Women can also benefit from the BCCP program available through the Ohio Department of Health.
ODH provides breast and cervical cancer screening and diagnostic services (no treatment), case management services to assist women receiving needed diagnostic tests and treatment services, and a network of 600 screening providers statewide.
ODH's BCCP screening and diagnostic services are coordinated through 11 regional offices, covering all 88 Ohio counties. To apply for BCCP, contact the regional office for your area or call ODH.
