Medicaid: Source of Screening Affects Women’s Eligibility for Coverage of Breast and Cervical Cancer Treatment in Some States
James C. Cosgrove (au)
Tens of thousands of women die each year from breast or cervical cancer. While screening and early detection -- followed by treatment -- can improve survival, low-income, uninsured women are often not screened. In 1990, Congress authorized the CDC to fund screening and diagnostic services for such women. An Act signed into law in 2000 allowed states to extend Medicaid eligibility to women screened under the Early Detection Program (EDP) and who need breast or cervical cancer treatment. This report examined the EDP's screening of eligible women, states' implementation of the Treatment Act, Medicaid enrollment and spending under the Treatment Act, and alternatives available to women ineligible for Medicaid under the Treatment Act.
