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

New Health Insurance Options
New insurance options are now available in Washington State. Residents may have new, better, more affordable options for health insurance. If you don’t have health insurance or if you can’t afford what you have, you may be eligible to:

  • Enroll in Washington Apple Health. This expanded Medicaid program now covers more people.
  • Buy a Qualified Health Plan. If you are not eligible for Washington Apple Health, you may still qualify for a low-cost insurance health plan. Visit http://wahealthplanfinder.org or call 1-855-923-4633 (TTY/TDD: 1-855-628-9604).
