Pap tests/pelvic exams (screening)

Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance) covers pap tests/pelvic exams:

• Once every 24 months for all women
• Once every 12 months if you’re at high risk for cervical or vaginal cancer, or if you’re of childbearing age and have had an abnormal Pap test in the past 36 months

Who’s eligible?

All women with Medicare are covered.

Your costs in Original Medicare
