Request for Proposals

Promising Practices for Medicaid-based Colorectal Cancer Control Activities

The NCCRT is pleased to announce a request for proposals to develop a resource that will improve our understanding of the role state Medicaid agencies can play in advancing colorectal cancer screening amongst the populations they serve. This project follows previously commissioned work, overseen by the NCCRT Policy Action Task Group, which conducted a state by state assessment of colorectal cancer control activity among Medicaid programs. The report found a wide range of colorectal cancer control activity among Medicaid agencies, ranging from no activity to extensive colorectal cancer activity. The purpose of this current scope of work is to analyze more thoroughly the ten states identified as having extensive colorectal cancer activity, thus unveiling activities other Medicaid agencies should consider for replication in order to advance screening.
