2012 Texas Medicaid Provider Procedures Manual

Volume 1, General Information : Section 4: Client Eligibility : 4.10 Medicaid for Breast and Cervical Cancer (MBCC)

4.10 Medicaid for Breast and Cervical Cancer (MBCC)
Through MBCC, the state of Texas provides full Medicaid benefits to eligible women who were screened through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP) and were found to need treatment for breast or cervical cancer, including precancerous conditions. The goal of the program is to improve timely access to breast and cervical cancer treatment for uninsured women identified by NBCCEDP.
DSHS receives the CDC funds and awards these funds to providers across the state to perform breast and cervical cancer screenings and diagnostic services under the Breast and Cervical Cancer Services (BCCS) program.
