317:35-21-5. In need of treatment

Revised 9-1-19

In need of treatment, when used in this subchapter, means an abnormal screen determined as a result of a screening for BCC under the CDC BCC Early Detection Program established under Title XV of the Public Health Service Act, indicating pre‑cancerous conditions and early stage, recurrent or metastatic cancer. Services include diagnostic services for an abnormal finding that may be necessary to determine the extent and proper course of treatment, as well as definitive cancer treatment itself.Women who are determined to require only routine monitoring services for precancerous breast or cervical condition (e.g., breast examinations, mammograms, pelvic exams and pap smears) are not considered to be "in need of treatment". The American Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology Consensus and National Comprehensive Cancer Network guidelines are used to make the "in need of treatment" determination.
