Once an individual is enrolled in the MCTP, full Medicaid coverage is provided for am initial period of enrollment as determined by the type of cancer being treated. Recertification is required at predetermined intervals, if the individual is still in need of treatment, at which time eligibility is reassessed. Enrollees must receive services from a Medicaid enrolled provider in order to have their services covered.
