Abstract

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) provides coverage options for cancer survivors seen in community health centers, especially in states that have expanded Medicaid; unfortunately, 1 in 5 cancer survivors living in a state that has not expanded Medicaid coverage eligibility remains uninsured. The ACA Medicaid expansion provision change, likely in tandem with other ACA changes, has also contributed to modest improvements in rates of cardiovascular‐related screenings for cancer survivors.
