How much does the Cervical Screening Test cost?

The Cervical Screening Test is free for many eligible women aged 25 to 74. However, your doctor or health provider may charge a small fee.

If you choose a doctor, clinic or health care centre that offers bulk billing there will be no out-of-pocket-expenses and therefore no cost to you for the test.

If you do not have your appointment with a bulk billing clinic, you may be asked to pay the full fee for your consultation. You will then need to claim the rebate from Medicare. 

It's important to ask about the cost of your Cervical Screening Test when you book your appointment.
