Yea it sucks. We don't qualify for Medicaid but we can't afford health insurance. So I made an appointment with the health department for my annual pap smear
Hoping for the sliding scale. Guess we aren't poor enough for the sliding scale. $200 is what it will cost. Great. So I can't get my annual because I don't have $200. Not good because I have a history of irregular paps . I had dysplasia stage 1.

At least I can get my bc. $30 for that. Lovely right.

This blows.

Damn, I'd call a regular doctor. We didn't have insurance for a long time, but I only had to pay $65 for a pap.

Yep.  You have more incentive to NOT work for a living.  That is what makes the system so fucked up.

I don't know about where you live but here we got "low income" clinics that go by what you make; you pay a minimum for getting all sorts of check ups and stuff; you should research that.

 I thought you said it was the health department?
