Three of four women say they have received a cervical cancer screening at some point in their lives, according to an online national survey of 3,204 women conducted in November and December, 2022.
However, White women are more likely to have received a cervical cancer screening (81%) than Black women (65%), Asian women (66%), and Hispanic women (68%). Further, women who are insured (79%) are more likely to have received a screening than uninsured women (51%). Additionally, Medicaid patients were less likely to have received a screening than those with other insurance.
And 72% of women said they’re likely to get a cervical cancer screening if it is recommended by their provider, but only 34% are likely to get a cervical cancer screening if it is not covered by their insurance.
