Is Abortion Expensive?
There is a range of abortion costs. It could cost you anything from $350 to $2,000 based on the gestational age of your pregnancy. While it’s difficult to give you an exact price, the costs depend on a few different things like:
- What state you live in
- What type of abortion procedure you receive
- What kind of health insurance you have
A medication abortion (using the abortion pill) normally costs between $350-$650 with insurance. A surgical abortion typically costs between $600-$2,000 with insurance. It all depends on your specific health insurance in your state.
What’s Covered By My Insurance?
Your insurance coverage depends on your state laws. Many health insurance plans don’t cover any abortions, while many do. If you live in Maryland, this is one of the few states where abortion is covered for certain women receiving Medicaid. Talk with your health insurance provider to learn more.
What to Know Before An Abortion
It’s vital to confirm your pregnancy before making your pregnancy decision. Receive a lab-quality pregnancy test and ultrasound to know how far along you are and if you have a viable pregnancy. Knowing the details of your pregnancy can affect what type of abortion procedure you are eligible for.
