A recent study examined the possible correlation between Medicaid coverage status and overall survival for patients with head and neck cancer.
Medicaid benefits are an important part of the health care landscape for low-income cancer survivors.
In states with higher Medicaid payments for office visits, Medicaid beneficiaries were more likely to be screened for breast, cervical, and colorectal cancer.
Patients with Medicaid insurance or no insurance coverage are less likely to receive cancer-related surgery and/or radiation and are more likely to die from cancer than those with insurance, according to an online study.
Changing treatment options for cancer patients has led to an increase in both the use and cost of diagnostic imaging, according to a study published in JAMA (2010;303(16):1625-1631).
