What if cancer is found?
Breast and Cervical Medicaid (BCCM) pays for treatment for NC BCCCP patients who are diagnosed with breast or cervical cancer. To be eligible for BCCM, it is preferable that a patient be referred and enrolled in NC BCCCP prior to being diagnosed with breast and/or cervical cancer. However, patients may be eligible to apply for BCCM after diagnosis of breast and/or cervical cancer (if they meet all other NC BCCCP eligibility criteria).
Contact your local NC BCCCP provider for more information.
