You just received a positive pregnancy test and you immediately started punching in the numbers, wondering to yourself, “How am I ever going to pay for this?”
The reality is, unplanned pregnancies often mean unexpected costs, especially in the case of abortion. While abortion is often discussed as being the most affordable pregnancy option, it can actually cost a pretty penny when all is said and done.
If you’re wondering how to go about finding affordable pregnancy care, Hope Women’s Center is here to help!
Will My Insurance Pay for the Abortion Pill?
Abortion laws and regulations vary greatly from state to state, however, in the state of Texas, insurance coverage for the abortion pill is limited.
From fully private insurance policies to state-funded plans, the cost of an abortion is only covered under cases of life endangerment and extremely compromised physical health of the mother.
How much will the abortion pill cost me out of pocket?
The cost of the abortion pill is typically around $500 out of pocket. Women are eligible for a medical abortion before 10 weeks gestation.
If your pregnancy is further than 10 weeks, you will be required to undergo a surgical abortion, which can cost between $500 and $3,000.
What other abortion costs should I be aware of?
In addition to the cost of the abortion procedure itself, you’ll also want to be aware of other expenses you may encounter, including:
- Pre-abortion scans and tests, such as pregnancy testing, ultrasound scans, and STD testing
- Medical expenses in the case of abortion complications
- Follow-up appointments
- Transportation and housing if travel is required to access the abortion
