Many women fall behind on their Pap tests because they feel they don’t have the financial resources and medical coverage necessary to pay for the test, but the truth is, the Pap is accessible to almost everyone through the Affordable Care Act (ACA). This makes this life-saving screening accessible no matter what your income level happens to be. Prior to the Pap test, cervical cancer was the leading cancer-related cause of death in those with a cervix, but now it is down to fifteen. Be sure to schedule your Pap test and see if the Affordable Care Act can help you!
