Length of Medicaid Eligibility
Eligible women receive Medicaid services for the duration of their treatment. Medicaid eligibility periods reflect the average treatment duration standard:
- Breast cancer - four months
- Cervical cancer - three months
- Pre-cancerous cervical - two months
- Breast disorder - two months
Some patients may require longer than the standard period of treatment and may be granted a Medicaid eligibility extension. An eligibility extension form (MAP-813D Breast and Cervical Cancer Treatment Program Extension) can be obtained from the department Web site. Extension requests must be initiated by the treating physician and, when request review is completed, recipients will receive a notice of their new eligibility status.
Note: Women who require routine monitoring services for pre-cancerous breast or cervical conditions (e.g. breast examinations and mammograms) are not considered to need treatment.
A Medicaid application can be filed with your designated provider when screening and diagnosis reveal the need for treatment for breast and/or cervical cancer or a pre-cancerous condition.
At the time of the application, the following information is needed:
Social Security number
- Health insurance
- Proof of immigration status for non-citizens
- Proof of citizenship
- Proof of identity
