What if I need a Pap test and I’m under 40?

You can enroll in the State Pap Plus Program by going to one of our contracted provider page to find a doctor’s office, and call for an appointment. Tell the provider that you need a Pap or STD test and that you would like to enroll in the State Pap Plus program. 
·      If you are under 40 and already had a Pap test and it came back abnormal, you can enroll in the EWM Diagnostic Program for diagnostic services. 

I am not due for a Pap test but I need STD testing.  Can the State Pap Plus Program pay for my office visit?
Yes, office visits for STD testing can be covered through the State Pap Plus Program regardless of whether or not you are due for a Pap test.  The costs of the STD tests, however, are not covered.
