December 2016 Texas Medicaid Provider Procedures Manual

Section 4: Client Eligibility : 4.10 Medicaid for Breast and Cervical Cancer (MBCC)

4.10
The MBCC program provides full Medicaid benefits to women who meet the program’s eligibility requirements. The goal of the program is to improve timely access to breast and cervical cancer treatment for uninsured women who are screened and identified by the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP) of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Additionally, the Texas State Legislature provided funding in 2007 to expand the pool of providers who provide screening and diagnostic services to women so that any provider can diagnose a woman for breast or cervical cancer and she may become eligible for Medicaid through MBCC.
DSHS receives funds from the CDC and awards the 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.
