Statewide Mammography Quality Project

The Breast Cancer Disparities Reduction Act, Illinois Public Law 95-1045, was signed by Governor Pat Quinn in 2009, and created the Breast Cancer Quality Screening and Treatment Initiative Advisory Board (BCQSTI). BCQSTI was a project of the Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services and the Department of Public Health.

Subsequently, the State appointed the Breast Cancer Quality Screening and Treatment Board, which collaborated with the Medicaid Program and the Illinois Breast and Cervical Cancer Program (IBCCP) to address issues around breast care.   Modifying legislation of Public Law 97-638 increased Medicaid reimbursement for mammography for those facilities and radiologists participating in the states quality measurement and improvement program.

The BCQSTI has not posted updates to its web site since 2012.
