National Cervical Cancer Screening Program

31 January 2018


Routine cervical screening is not recommended in the renewed program for women under 25 years. Some women under 25 will present with an expectation for routine screening, having had previous Pap tests. It is important that these women are aware that Medicare does not fund routine HPV cervical screening tests in women under 25.

Pathology laboratories are reporting that a significant number of samples are being submitted from women under 25 years of age. Given Medicare does not fund routine HPV cervical screening tests in women under 25 these will either need to be privately funded by the patient or, with the consent of the referring practitioner, not be processed by the laboratory.
