How Much Do Abortions Cost?

Abortion could cost anywhere from $350 to $2,000 based on how far along you are in your pregnancy. It’s hard to come up with an exact cost, as it has to do with a few different factors. Abortion costs can vary depending on:

  • Type of abortion procedure
  • Health insurance coverage
  • Local abortion legislation

The abortion pill(s) typically costs between $350-$650 with insurance, while a surgical abortion costs typically between $600-$2,000 with insurance. Of course, this will vary depending on your insurance and if you’re covered in your specific state.

What Does My Insurance Cover?

Your insurance coverage will depend on your state laws. Some health insurance plans don’t cover all or any abortions, while others do. If you live in the state of Missouri, health plans offered in the state’s health exchange under the Affordable Care Act only cover abortion in cases of life endangerment (Guttmacher). Speak with your health insurance provider to learn more about your coverage options.
