Cervical cancer screening increases after state-level expansions of Medicaid eligibility to nonelderly adults, despite the presence of other programs that cover or provide cervical cancer screening, including Medicaid waiver programs and state NBCCEDP programs.
Additionally, improving outreach efforts for programs such as NBCCEDP will help to target many underserved communities.
The center is a site for the Illinois NBCCEDP, referred to as the Illinois Breast and Cervical Cancer Program (IBCCP).
The BCCPTA also gave states the flexibility to select broader screening scenarios for defining "screened under the program, NBCCEDP." Georgia was one of the 12 states that chose the most expansive coverage option by making women screened for and diagnosed with these cancers by any provider in the state eligible under the BCCPTA (CMS 2010).
The researchers analyzed the NBCCEDP data to determine the prevalence of biopsy-proven cervical neoplasia in women with 1-3 recent negative Pap smears.
As a result of NBCCEDP, the state of Mississippi offers breast screening and mammograms for women 50 years of age or older who have no Medicaid, private insurance, Medicare or other third-party payment.
This measure provides a state option to expand Medicaid eligibility to women under age 65 who have been screened by the NBCCEDP, need treatment for breast and/or cervical cancer, and are uninsured.
All models also control for the following variables for each state and year: presence of a direct access law for OB/GYNs; presence of a National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP) ; Section 1115 Family Planning waivers to Medicaid; share of women 15-44 with private health insurance; share of women who work or who have a husband who works at a firm with 24 or fewer employees, 25-99 employees, or 100 or more employees; the unemployment rate; welfare reform; the level of HMO penetration (as a share of the population); the number of obstetric beds per 100 women 1544, the eligibility threshold for Medicaid eligibility for a pregnant woman in the state as a share of the FPL; and the share urban, share black, and share Hispanic in the state.
In order to meet the healthcare needs of low-income women, programs such as the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP) have been instituted, and provide access to lifesaving cancer screening, diagnostic services, and treatment centers to millions of uninsured and underinsured women (CDC, 2003).
This project is partly funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP).
Implementation of systematic approaches for tracking screening results and assurance that follow-up and treatment are provided within predetermined intervals have been critical to the success of the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP) (13).
The widespread CDC National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP) is a good example.
