Medical Assistance Breast or Cervical Cancer (MA-BC) Health Care Delivery

Medical Assistance Breast or Cervical Cancer (MA-BC) enrollees must follow guidelines for receiving medically necessary services. MA-BC medical services are provided via fee for service.

Fee for Service

Fee-for-service is a method of payment where the medical provider bills MHCP for specific, individual services. Enrollees must use a medical provider enrolled with MHCP, except in special circumstances. A directory of enrolled providers is available online.

Covered Services

The MHCP Summary of Coverage, Cost Sharing, and Limits (DHS-3860) explains covered services. MA-BC has no cost sharing.
