Cervical and colorectal cancer screening prevalence before and after Affordable Care Act Medicaid expansion.
This study assessed changes in the prevalence of cervical and colorectal cancer screening from before and after the Affordable Care Act in Medicaid expansion and non-expansion states among patients seen in community health centers. Results showed that, despite increased prevalences of cervical and colorectal cancer screening in both expansion and non-expansion states across all race/ethnicity groups, rates remained suboptimal for this population of socioeconomically disadvantaged patients.
