Abstract

There are less data available on the effect of the ACA on breast cancer care beyond the screening level. A retrospective review at participating iCaRe2/BCCR institutions was completed before and after ACA. Post-ACA, patients were older, more urban, and more likely to be insured through Medicaid. Increased imaging use was noted post-ACA. These patients were less likely to be diagnosed with late-stage cancers, received fewer mastectomies, and were more likely to have radiation.
