Breast and Cervical Cancer Program

The Breast and Cervical Cancer Program (BCCP) is a Medicaid program for women who have been diagnosed with breast or cervical cancer.  BCCP also covers breast and cervical conditions that may lead to cancer if not treated.

  • Women who were diagnosed outside of WWC should work with an eligible site to complete the enrollment process.


 What services are available?


  • BCCP clients have access to all Medicaid covered services including breast reconstruction after breast cancer surgery.  This includes but is not limited to prescription drugs, office visits, lab testing, and inpatient care.  Certain services will require prior authorization.


Presumptive Eligibility


Presumptive eligibility allows a woman to enroll in Medicaid for a short time before a BCCP Medicaid application is received and processed.  The presumptive eligibility form and BCCP Medicaid application must be completed at the WWC site.  Presumptive eligibility allows women to start treatment quickly after a diagnosis is made.


Clients eligible for BCCP are exempt from enrollment in Medicaid managed care programs.
