Eligibility Requirements for BCCTP Applicants

July 11, 2019

Breast and Cervical Cancer Treatment Program (BCCTP) applicants must be denied full-scope Medi-Cal prior to the final BCCTP eligibility determination. Applying for Medi-Cal is a BCCTP eligibility requirement. Every Woman Counts (EWC) and Family Planning, Access, Care and Treatment (Family PACT) beneficiaries found to have a qualifying diagnosis, who have not applied to Medi-Cal within the last 30 days, should be instructed to apply for Medi-Cal. If they are found to be eligible, they will be enrolled into Medi-Cal and, therefore, will not be enrolled into BCCTP. This requirement includes applicants who may not otherwise be eligible for full-scope Medi-Cal, such as undocumented individuals. Providers can continue to enroll qualified beneficiaries into BCCTP; they will remain in the BCCTP initial aid code until the Medi-Cal eligibility decision is completed by the county.
