Prior Authorization
A prior authorization must be completed before patient is enrolled to verify what services the patient’s eligible for. Please call either Cathy at 509-249-6537 or Jessica at 509-249-6536.

Case Management
Case Management services include ongoing tracking and follow-up of clients who have received an abnormal cancer screening result through BCCHP. Case Managers are also responsible for ensuring that clients diagnosed with cancer initiate treatment in a timely manner. The PC Case Managers will be responsible for ongoing tracking, follow-up, and eligibility re-determination for women who remain enrolled in the Breast and Cervical Cancer Treatment Program (BCCTP). They also are responsible for linking diagnosed clients to financial resources or insurance to cover their treatment.

Resources
With Healthcare reform as of January 1, 2014, we should work together to encourage those without health insurance to apply through the Washington Health Plan finder.
