What special Medicaid coverage is available to women?

Cancer Prevention and Treatment

Breast and Cervical Cancer Prevention and Treatment (BCCPT) Medicaid programs are available to eligible women who are diagnosed with either breast and/or cervical cancer through the state screening program. You may be eligible even if you have a higher income. States have flexibility to define what it means to have been diagnosed or screened under the program.

Medicaid Options for Pregnant Women

Pregnant women may have special eligibility for Medicaid coverage for themselves and their infants at little or no cost if they have limited income.

Medicaid eligibility for pregnant women varies by state, but all states must cover pregnant women with incomes up to about $20,000 as an individual. Most states cover pregnant women under Medicaid with higher incomes, and some states cover pregnant women under the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).

  1. if you need to get immediate care while waiting for Medicaid I recommend getting low-cost health care at a Community Health Center near you.

    Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) health centers provide low cost health care through county clinics. Even if you have no health insurance or can’t get Medicaid you only pay what you can afford, based on your income.

    HRSA Health centers provide services such as:

    Wellness checkups.
    Diagnostic and treatment when you’re sick
    Pregnancy care
    Children immunizations and checkups
    Prescription drugs and dental care
    Substance abuse care and mental health services
    HRSA are federally-funded health service centers that provide care for you, even if you have no health insurance or cannot get medicaid. Remember, you only pay what you can afford, based on your income. You can find a local clinic at this link http://findahealthcenter.hrsa.gov/Search_HCC.aspx
