An Ounce of Prevention = A Pound of Cure: Pap Test (All women 21 years and older)

Women should start Pap test screening at age 21. Between the ages of 21-29, women whose Pap tests are normal only need it repeated every three years. Most women ages 21 to 65 need regular Pap tests. Talk with your doctor to see if this is appropriate for you.

Primary care providers may refer you to a specialist for this procedure, but always make sure the specialist is in-network if you want the procedure covered at 100%.
