Cervical Cancer Screening
EHP, Priority Partners, and USFHP. Female members 21 to 64 years of age.
Female members age 21-64 who were screened for cervical cancer using the following criteria:
- Age 24-64 who had cervical cytology performed within the last three years*.
- Age 30-64 who had cervical high-risk human papillomavirus (hrHPV) testing performed within the last five years**.
- Age 30-64 who had cervical cytology/hrHPV co-testing performed within the last five years**.
* Three year look back requires 21 years or older on test date.
** Five year look back requires age 30 or older on test date.
Best Practice and Measure Tips
- All tests require date and result.
- Request results for tests performed by another provider.
- Complete test during well woman OB/GYN visit, sick visits, urine pregnancy tests, UTI or screening for STDs.
- Review and document your patient’s surgical and preventive screenings history with results
- Use correct diagnosis and procedure codes
- Member reported information documented in the patient’s medical record is acceptable as long as there is a date and result of the test or a date of the hysterectomy and acceptable documentation of no residual cervix. The member reported information must be logged in the patient’s chart by a care provider.
- Generic documentation of "HPV test" can count as evidence of hrHPV test.
- Lab results that indicate sample contained "no endocervical cells" may be used if a valid result was reported for test.
- Documentation of a “vaginal Pap smear” with documentation of hysterectomy.
- Documentation of hysterectomy and documentation that a member no longer needs Pap testing/cervical cancer screening.
- Biopsies or Lab results that indicate inadequate sample or no cervical cells.
- Biopsies are considered diagnostic and do not meet the measure requirement.
- Referral to OB/GYN alone does not meet the measure.
- Palliative Care
- Hysterectomy with no residual cervix, cervical agenesis or acquired absence of cervix.
- Acquired absence of both cervix and uterus.
- Partial hysterectomy can only be used if absence of cervix is documented.
Documentation of a “hysterectomy” alone will not meet the intent of the exclusion. The documentation must include the words “total,” “complete” or “radical” abdominal or vaginal hysterectomy.
Optional Exclusion Timeframe: Any time in a member’s history through December 31 of the measurement year.
