Re: Severe cervical dysplasia, 3rd biopsy, post-LEEP?

Call the county Department of Health and Human Services for where you live. It may have a slightly different name where you're at. There is something that is called the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Screening Act. This is a national program. It allows for women with low to moderate income to receive care under Medicaid for treatment and prevention of Cervical Cancer. The way it works here in Michigan is you go to the County's Family Planning (again it may have a different name for you) - not the private, non-profit ones - I believe you have to meet the income guidelines - They do a pap free of charge. If the results come back abnormal you are enrolled in the program and can fill out the Medicaid application. I don't know what the wait time is to get the approval letter. It's different everywhere. Many OB/GYNs participate in this program so you should be able to get much better care than what you have gotten so far. IMHO what you have gotten so far is deplorable. Good luck.
