Does abortion feel like the only way out of your unplanned pregnancy? You’re not the only person who feels that way. Research tells us that 1 in 4 women will have an abortion by age 45. But before you decide, you should consider the cost of an abortion and learn about your other options.
Abortion is a highly personal and private decision, often seen as a solution to a stressful circumstance. At Choices of the Heart, we care about you. We will help you explore your options and what resources are available for you.
What Determines The Cost Of An Abortion?
While insurance plans don’t always cover the costs of an abortion, many do. You can check with your insurance provider or view your benefits online to see what is covered and what isn’t.
Costs of abortions can vary based on location and on the facility. In the Delaware Valley, you can expect to pay $600-$800 without insurance. If you have to travel, you should also factor in travel costs to your total. Keep in mind that many abortion procedures require more than one doctor visit, so you may need to make multiple trips.
- Gestational Age
Abortion procedures vary depending on how old your pregnancy is. If you are farther along, your costs will go up as the process becomes more difficult and involved.
Before you continue with an abortion, it’s in your best interest to have your pregnancy verified & receive an accurate gestational age. With several abortion methods available today, how far along you are will determine what process is used affecting the cost. The only way to know exactly how far along you are is by getting an OB Ultrasound.
To help alleviate the cost during this potentially stressful time, we offer a free OB ultrasound to our clients.
