Background and Brief Description The National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP) provides free or low-cost breast and cervical cancer screening and diagnostic services to low-income, uninsured, and underserved women. The NBCCEDP is an organized screening program with a full complement of services including outreach and patient education, patient navigation, case management, professional development, and tracking and follow-up that contribute to the program’s success. Compared to when the NBCCEDP was established, more women are eligible for insurance coverage but there are still many women who are not insured and many insured women not obtaining preventive services that they are eligible to receive. Currently, the NBCCEDP not only provides screening services to uninsured and underinsured, but has expanded its services to include population-based activities that prevent missed opportunities and ensure that all women receive appropriate breast and cervical cancer screening.

With recent increases in the numbers of women who are insured, there is a need to understand the experiences of women who had been served by the NBCCEDP and become newly insured. This project will inform the development of future activities of the NBCCEDP so that all women receive the information and support services needed for obtaining clinical preventive services. The purpose of this project is to examine the facilitators and barriers to receiving clinical preventive services among newly insured medically underserved women who had previously been served by the NBCCEDP. The Women’s Preventive Services Study aims to survey newly insured women about what clinical preventive health services they receive, what barriers and facilitators they experience, and their ability to maintain consistent health insurance coverage. While having newly acquired health insurance will improve access to preventive services, insurance coverage alone would not result in improved clinical preventive services utilization for all women, especially among underserved populations. This project proposes to follow a group of women previously served by the NBCCEDP over three years by administering a yearly questionnaire. This study will focus on the following research questions: 1. What are the insurance coverage patterns (e.g., public or private insurance) for a sample of medically underserved women previously screened through the NBCCEDP? 2. What barriers and facilitators do these women face in enrolling in new insurance coverage? 3. What preventive health services, including cancer screening, do these women receive? 4.

NBCCEDP state programs will identify potentially eligible women and consent the women to have their contact information shared for the study. The women who agree will receive an invitation letter to participate in the study through an on-line survey. The first step of the on-line survey will be a set of screener questions to determine whether they have insurance coverage. Only those who currently have insurance will be eligible to continue with the main survey instrument. Women who complete the survey will preventive health services through their new coverage? 5. What are the non-financial and financial costs to these women? The respondents will be uninsured or underinsured women who previously had been screened through the NBCCEDP but now have health insurance coverage.

Of that, we expect 9,683 completed on-line screenings to occur during year one, representing an annualized 3,288 respondents. With an 85% expected completion rate and annual attrition, we estimate that 3,292 surveys will be completed in Year 1; 2,222 completed surveys in Year 2; and 1,500 completed surveys in Year 3.

    Women's Preventive Health Services Study--New--National Center for 
Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for 
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    The National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program 
(NBCCEDP) provides free or low-cost breast and cervical cancer 
screening and diagnostic services to low-income, uninsured, and 
underserved women. The NBCCEDP is an organized screening program with a 
full complement of services including outreach and patient education, 
patient navigation, case management, professional development, and

Compared to when the NBCCEDP was established, more women are eligible 
for insurance coverage but there are still many women who are not

they are eligible to receive. Currently, the NBCCEDP not only provides 
screening services to uninsured and underinsured, but has expanded its 
services to include population-based activities that prevent missed 
opportunities and ensure that all women receive appropriate breast and 
cervical cancer screening.
    Previous research suggests that access to health care through 
insurance alone does not ensure adherence to cancer screening, as many 
individual, cultural, and community factors serve as barriers to 
preventive service use. With recent increases in the numbers of women 
who are insured, there is a need to understand the experiences of women 
who had been served by the NBCCEDP and become newly insured. This 
project will inform the development of future activities of the NBCCEDP 
so that all women receive the information and support services needed 
for obtaining clinical preventive services.
    The purpose of this project is to examine the facilitators and 
barriers to receiving clinical preventive services among newly insured 
medically underserved women who had previously been served by the

    5. What are the non-financial and financial costs to these women?
    The respondents will be uninsured or underinsured women who 
previously had been screened through the NBCCEDP but now have health 
insurance coverage. To be potentially eligible for the study, women 
must be between the ages of 30-62 years, a U.S. Citizen or U.S. 
permanent resident, resident of the state where they received NBCCEDP 
services, and English or Spanish speaking. Additionally, women must 
meet one of the prior screening criteria: (1) Having received a Pap

Pap/HPV co-test through a NBCCEDP grantee not less than three years but 
not more than 5 years from the time of study implementation OR (3) 
received a mammogram through a NBCCEDP grantee not less than one year 
but not more than three years from the time of study implementation.
    NBCCEDP state programs will identify potentially eligible women and 
consent the women to have their contact information shared for the
