If your girlfriend has just discovered she is pregnant, you likely need to find a solution. You may be in shock, frustrated, and anxious, wondering how much abortion or carrying the pregnancy to term could cost.
Typically, health insurance companies only allow adding spouses, someone you are in a civil union with, or dependents to your plan. Insurance will likely not cover her abortion if no financial or legal obligation exists between you and your girlfriend.
At AscentCare, we believe that finances should not be a deciding factor in family planning, so we offer no-cost pregnancy services such as free pregnancy tests and ultrasounds (used for pre-abortion screenings) to help alleviate the financial burden.
Your First Step
Your first step is to take a deep breath. You don’t have to find a solution overnight, and the best way to support your girlfriend as you reach a decision is to be a calm, strong presence. She, no doubt, is just as stressed as you are!
Her eligibility for the abortion pill will depend on whether or not you and your girlfriend have confirmed the pregnancy with a reliable pregnancy test. Our office offers lab-quality pregnancy tests, and we can also help your girlfriend estimate the best time to take the test based on how many days have elapsed since her missed period.
How Much Does an Abortion For My Girlfriend Cost?
The cost of an abortion is often determined by how far along the pregnancy is (an ultrasound will confirm this), the type of abortion procedure, and if the abortion is conducted in a hospital or private clinic.
If your girlfriend is less than ten weeks along, she is potentially eligible for a medication abortion. Without insurance, the procedure can cost up to $500. Surgical abortions are an option if the pregnancy is too advanced for a medical abortion (usually after ten weeks).
In New York, abortion is currently legal for up to 24 weeks. The average cost of a surgical abortion is about $1,195. The cost of surgical abortion can be higher (even $3,000 or more) depending on your pregnancy gestation, insurance coverage, and the specific provider.
