The cost of abortion varies widely and it is dependent on a variety of factors. These include but are not limited to:
- Health Insurance. Do you have health insurance? If so, you may want to discuss with them to become clearer on what your plan may or may not cover in terms of aborting your pregnancy.
- If you don’t have health insurance, your out-of-pocket cost may be higher. Some government health insurance plans assist with abortions; however, others do not.
- The cost of abortions vary from state to state and clinic to clinic. It’s important to gather all your information regarding cost prior to your abortion.
- Type of Abortion. There are two types of abortions — the abortion pill and surgical abortion.
- How far along in your pregnancy are you? The farther along you are in your pregnancy, the more your abortion may cost.
The specific cost of an abortion depends on the type of procedure and the size of the baby, which are based on gestational age. The price rises as pregnancy progresses. Price also varies by provider; clinics and private practice abortionists typically offer lower costs than hospitals. According to a leading abortion provider, national average a first-trimester abortion costs $300-$950; second trimester abortions cost $1200-$2100 or more.
