Will Missouri Medicaid Pay for the Abortion Pill?

This girl is wondering if Missouri Medicaid will pay for her abortion pill.

An unplanned pregnancy for some women might mean adjusting the budget a bit and making a few life changes to account for a new addition to the family. However, for others, an unplanned pregnancy seems to only mean one thing — an unplanned abortion.

Without health insurance and the means to care for a child, many women feel forced to choose abortion, even if they have a desire for a family. 

Here at Liberty Women’s Clinic, we recognize that women facing unplanned pregnancies are often limited by their financial situation. That’s why we provide no-cost healthcare services, access to physical resources, and community referrals
If you’re considering abortion and wondering what your options are, we’re here to help.

Will Missouri Medicaid Pay for Abortion or Abortion Pill? 

In most cases, Missouri Medicaid will not cover the costs of the abortion pill. In the rare cases of life endangerment, rape, or incest, the abortion pill will be covered by public funding.

If you’re seeking medical care related to an unplanned pregnancy, you have options. Liberty Women’s Clinic is here to help guide you through your pregnancy options and provide you with no-cost resources, such as pregnancy testing, ultrasound scans, STI testing, and more.

How much does the abortion pill cost? 

The abortion pill will typically cost women around $500 out of pocket. If your pregnancy is past 10 weeks, you’ll only be eligible for a surgical abortion, which can cost anywhere between $500 and $3,000, depending on the stage of your pregnancy. 

What other costs should I consider? 

Abortion is often sold to women as the most financially beneficial option, however, it’s important to be aware of the additional costs you may encounter as part of an abortion procedure.

First, you’ll want to talk with a nurse who will discuss an appointment for an ultrasound scan. Getting an ultrasound is an important step in ensuring that you’re not at risk for any immediate health concerns, such as an ectopic pregnancy. The scan will also give you information like the age, location, and viability of the pregnancy. These factors will help you and your doctor determine what your pregnancy options are. 

While your abortion provider will likely charge you extra for this service, Liberty Women’s Clinic provides no-cost ultrasounds to women experiencing unplanned pregnancies.

Women considering abortion should also budget for the potential costs that could come with abortion complications, such as infections, hemorrhaging, or incomplete abortions. 

Where can I find free healthcare?

We provide no-cost healthcare services, access to physical resources, adoption referrals, and community resource referrals. We’re here to help you make the decision that’s best for you and your future!
