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).
