New York State Department of Health has stated – Medicaid recipients should receive breast cancer surgery services at high volume facilities (those facilities performing 30 or more mastectomy and lumpectomy procedures associated with a breast cancer diagnosis on average over a three-year period). See the listing of low-volume facilities that will not be reimbursed for breast cancer surgeries provided to Medicaid recipients. This policy does not affect a
facility's ability to provide diagnostic or excisional biopsies, and post–surgical care (chemotherapy, radiation, reconstruction, etc.) for Medicaid patients.
