9.16.2012 Cervical Cancer Screening The USPSTF released new recommendations for cervical cancer screening in March 2012. It recommends cytology (Pap test) screening every three years for women 21_65 years of age or, for women 30_65 years of age who want to lengthen the screening interval, screening with a combination of cytology and human papillomavirus (HPV) testing every five years. In light of the new recommendations, will NCQA update the CCS measure to account for the lengthened screening for women 30_65 years?

In response to USPSTF recommendations, NCQA has scheduled the CCS measure for reevaluation in 2012. The appropriate staff and panels will review updates and other relevant guidelines and will evaluate potential changes to the measure. Proposed changes, if any, will be posted for Public Comment in February 2013 and, pending final approval by the NCQA Committee on Performance Measurement, will be included in HEDIS 2014.
