Breast Or Cervical Cancer Treatment Medical Assistance (BCCT)

1320.005.00 Pre-Closing / Exparte Review

IM-111, November 26, 2007

If a change in circumstances results in a determination of ineligibility for BCCT, eligibility for all MO HealthNet programs must be explored prior to taking action to close the case. All available information should be carefully reviewed. If potential eligibility exists under another program, continue MO HealthNet healthcare coverage under BCCT while exploring the other eligibility.

Do not ask the participant to provide information that is available to the agency or to reverify current case information. In some situations it may be necessary to obtain additional information from the participant to determine eligibility in another MO HealthNet program. Do not discontinue BCCT eligibility until the new eligibility determination is complete.
