The Affordable Care Act requires that all insurance companies cover the cost of Well Woman Screening, Examination and PAP smear at 100% of the charges. If you have elected the Student Health Insurance, you may make an appointment with any provider in the First Health Network for your examination without need of a referral from the Sudent Health Center. If desired, the Nurse Practitioner in the Health Center will be happy to discuss your concerns and individual health needs and assist you with appointments to local providers.

The Affordable Care Act also requires that all insurance companies cover the cost of HPV Vaccination at 100% of the charges. Gardisil is available at the Student Health Center, no appointment necessary.

Under age 21, family planning services (birth control prescriptions) may be obtained at the Health Center without a gynecology examination or PAP smear. 

All women are recommended to have a pelvic examination at age 21 unless previously diagnosed with an abnormal pap smear.
