Measure Definition

Monitors the percentage of young women 16 years of age and older who are identified as sexually active and received a test for Chlamydia during 2011.

Importance

Less than half the HFP teens who were eligible based on age and sexual activity for Chlamydia screening received this recommended screening in 2011 (47.8%), similar to 2010 rates. Four health plans exceeded the national commercial 90th percentile (53.9%):

  • Contra Costa Health Plan
  • CalOptima
  • Kaiser Foundation Health Plan - South
  • Kaiser Foundation Health Plan – North

 

Seven health plans had rates below the national commercial 10th percentile (29.3%), including two local plans serving Kern and San Francisco counties. According to recently released data from the CA Department of Public Health3, the highest reported rates for females 15-24 years of age in 2011 are in Sacramento, San Francisco, Fresno and Kern counties.
