Medical Assistance for Women with Breast or Cervical Cancer

2.5.1.4.2 Renewals

Enrollees in Medical Assistance for women with Breast or Cervical Cancer (MA-BC) must have eligibility renewed every 12 months. Renewing eligibility means redetermining eligibility.

Annual Renewal Month

The annual renewal month is the month in which eligibility is redetermined for the next 12 months. The first annual renewal month after application is 12 months from the month of application for ongoing MA-BC and occurs annually thereafter as long as the enrollee remains eligible for MA-BC.

The enrollee must complete the Minnesota MA Application/Renewal Breast and Cervical Cancer (DHS-3525) and Certification of Further Treatment Required (DHS-3525A) and submit the forms to their county, tribal or state servicing agency. The form and any required proofs are due before the renewal date. Enrollees can submit the original renewal form or a photocopy, fax or scanned form to their county, tribal or state servicing agency.
