If you and your girlfriend are unexpectedly pregnant, it’s normal to feel a rush of emotions such as anxiety, stress, and shock. These feelings could be driving you to seek an abortion.
As you are learning your options, it’s crucial to gather as much information as possible and know what resources are available to you. If cost is a determining factor for you, we believe at Hope First that finances should not be the ultimate factor in a couple’s pregnancy decision.
Typically, health insurance companies only allow adding spouses, domestic partners, or dependents to your plan. Insurance will likely cover only your medical costs if no financial or legal obligation exists between you and your girlfriend. However, this could vary based on your specific plan.
Your First Step
Your first step will depend on whether or not you and your girlfriend have confirmed the pregnancy with a reliable pregnancy test. Our clinic offers lab-quality pregnancy tests and a no-cost options consultation where you can ask questions, discuss options, and learn what resources are available to you.
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) and the type of abortion procedure.
If she’s 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 North Carolina, abortion is currently legal for up to 20 weeks. The average cost of a 20-week surgical abortion is about $1,195. The cost of a surgical abortion can be higher (even $3,000 or more) depending on your pregnancy gestation, insurance coverage, and the specific provider.
