Abortion Cost

The cost for abortion depends on the type of procedure you have.  These are the approximate costs in the Warren County, NJ area:

 

According to the Guttmacher Institute, the average cost for a first-trimester abortion is in the US is $508 (anywhere between $75 and $25001). The median cost for a second-trimester abortion is $1,195. Later term abortion can cost $3,000 or more.

 

 

The specific cost of an abortion depends on the type of procedure and the size of the baby, which are based on gestational age. The price rises as pregnancy progresses. Price also varies by provider; clinics and private practice abortionists typically offer lower costs than hospitals.

Typical Abortion Costs

One of the most common questions asked is, “How much does an abortion cost?” Costs can range from between $350 to over $650 for a medical abortion and $600 to over $2,000 for a surgical abortion, depending on how far along you are in your pregnancy.

Cost estimates may include but are not limited to:

  1. Health Insurance.  Do you have health insurance?  If so, you may want to discuss with them to become clearer on what your plan may or may not cover in terms of aborting your pregnancy.
  2. If you don’t have health insurance, your out-of-pocket cost may be higher. Some government health insurance plans assist with abortions, however, others do not
  3. The cost of abortions varies from state to state and clinic to clinic. It’s important to gather all your information regarding cost prior to your abortion.

Type of Abortion. There are two types of abortions – the abortion pill (link to new info on this information) and a surgical abortion. (link to new info on this information) The price is dependent upon the type of abortion you desire, the licensed practitioner(s) involved, and how far along in your pregnancy you are. The farther along you are in your pregnancy, the more your abortion may cost.

 

Initial Appointment Charges

The first set of charges you could face during the initial appointment at an abortion clinic or an abortion provider’s office in New Jersey can vary. The staff will typically need to perform a medical exam and an ultrasound.

  • Blood test to screen for health risks
    • RH incompatibility with the fetus ($25-$50)1
    • STD screening ($180 to $349)2
      • Identify correct treatment
      • Preserve future fertility
  • Sonogram required by clinics ($100 to $300)3
    • Fetal age determines procedure options
    • Assess viability: 10 – 25% end in miscarriage4
    • Position (ectopic pregnancy is life-threatening)

Do not forget to factor in incidental expenses that can add up quickly.

  • Transportation to and from the clinic
  • Childcare while at the clinic and during recovery
  • time off from work

Prices by Week

Abortion prices in New Jersey and across the country increase in proportion to the gestational age of the pregnancy.

 

Medical professionals measure fetal age by calculating LMP – the number of weeks since the first day of your last menstrual period.

4 – 10 WEEKS LMP

The direct cost of an abortion at 4-10 weeks after your last menstrual period ranges from $350 to $800. The first trimester indirect and incidental charges will vary by provider, the type of procedure recommended, and your individual circumstances.
  • Indirect charges for the ultrasound and blood test may add to the total. Why spend money needlessly? Your early pregnancy may not be viable.
  • The direct cost of a surgical procedure (vacuum or suction aspiration) during this period ranges from $350 at a clinic to $500 at a doctor’s office.
  • The direct cost of the medical abortion (pill) ranges up to $800.5 The abortion pill is a prescription drug and can only be taken during the 4th week through the 10th week of your pregnancy. Once you have passed the tenth week, the pill is no longer an option.

11 - 24 WEEKS LMP

Since a medical abortion (the abortion pill) is no longer an option after the 10th week, abortion during the 11th through 24th weeks of your pregnancy must be done as a surgical procedure. Several external sources report on the average price of abortions across the country. Factor in the unique New Jersey requirements to these averages to estimate what the provider may ultimately charge.
  • 16 weeks LMP: $650 – $7006
  • 20 + weeks LMP: $1,5007

After 14 Weeks LMP

After 14 weeks pregnant, New Jersey law dictates that 2nd-trimester abortions must be performed in a licensed hospital or done using a D&E surgical procedure.

Therefore, the charges for the hospitalization and medical procedures used will be higher when this requirement applies. Inpatient facilities such as hospitals have much higher charges than clinics or doctor’s offices.

After 18 Weeks LMP

After 18 weeks pregnant, New Jersey law then requires that the doctor must have admitting and surgical privileges within 20 minutes’ driving time of the hospital facility.8 If the number of physicians performing abortions is limited, the charges may be higher.

ABORTION COST IN NJ & INSURANCE

Your health insurance plan may cover abortion – with notable exceptions. Most every plan has member cost-sharing features. The patient is responsible for paying all charges not covered by their health plan.

  • Deductible
  • Copayments
  • Co-insurance
  • Out-of-network charges

Remember, in addition to the providers’ charges, other medical services are also needed— additional charges may incur from sonograms, blood tests, prescription medications, and anesthesia.
