Many of us are lucky to have insurance cover the costs of a Pap test, but not all women have access to a test. They often get skipped due to limited medical coverage, so I think it is important to note that a Pap test is accessible to most no matter what your financial situation is. The Affordable Care Act covers cancer screenings for most people, meaning the Pap is accessible to nearly everyone! This type of cancer is often preventable with a routine test. Please don’t see the Pap as a forgettable appointment but something necessary to your health!
