Pap tests are available for almost everyone with a cervix thanks to the Affordable Care Act, which covers cancer screenings regardless of income. Because of the Affordable Care Act, I am able to keep up with regular Pap tests. I am so grateful that there are policies for women to get Pap tests that save lives! Did you know that cervical cancer is often asymptomatic until it reaches its later stages? That is why it is so critical that routine Pap testing be included in every woman’s routine wellness exam.
