Approximately 500 medical, clinical and laboratory providers have signed agreements with the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) to provide breast and cervical cancer screening and diagnostic services to Breast and Cervical Cancer Project (BCCP) clients. BCCP’s 5 Regional Enrollment Agencies work with medical providers in their respective geographic areas to provide services to BCCP direct service clients.
BCCP direct services include mammograms, Pap tests, office visits, clinical breast exams, colposcopy, breast ultrasound, biopsy and other diagnostic procedures. The CDC determines eligible Current Procedural Terminology codes for BCCP. In general, providers are reimbursed at Medicare Part B rates. Allowable codes and rates are updated annually. Services are reimbursed by a third party administrator.
Instructions to complete the BCCP Provider Agreement (documents below)
In order for a provider to be reimbursed for services to a BCCP client, the provider must have a signed agreement with ODH. The term of the current BCCP provider agreement is November 1, 2019 through June 30, 2026.
The BCCP Provider Agreement packet is comprised of the following components. The signature on the provider agreement must be original. The signature on the W-9 may be copied.
Electronic Fund Transfer Form
The “Provider’s Business Name” name on page 1 of the Provider Agreement must match exactly the “name” on line one the W-9.
Our funder, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), asks that all BCCP clients be screened as to smoking status, and that current smokers be referred to the Ohio Tobacco Quit Line. Clients identified as current smokers should be referred to the Ohio Tobacco Quit Line at 1-800-QUIT-NOW (1-800-784-8669).
