You can get the abortion pill from a doctor, nurse, health clinic, or Planned Parenthood health center. You may be able to get the abortion pill for free or low cost.
Where can I get the abortion pill?
You can get medication abortion (AKA the abortion pill) at many Planned Parenthood health centers. Our caring doctors and nurses are experts at providing safe abortion and non-judgmental support throughout the process. Even if your local Planned Parenthood health center doesn't provide the abortion pill, you can call for more information about where to get it in your area.
When looking for a place to get an abortion, beware of “crisis pregnancy centers.” These fake clinics seem like medical centers that offer abortions or other pregnancy options, but they’re actually run by people who want to scare or shame people out of getting an abortion.
Telemedicine for the abortion pill and getting the abortion pill in the mail
Planned Parenthood health centers offer medication abortion (AKA the abortion pill) in several ways. In some states, we can offer medication abortion via telemedicine (also called telehealth), where you meet with your doctor or nurse by video or phone, and get your pills by mail or or by picking them up at a local clinic or pharmacy. Contact your nearest Planned Parenthood health center to see if this is an option for you.
How much does the abortion pill cost?
The cost of a medication abortion (AKA the abortion pill) can vary depending on the state where you receive care and your health insurance (private or government insurance). Your local Planned Parenthood health center can give you more information about the cost of the abortion and funds that might be available to help you pay for your abortion. Some things to know:
The professionals at Planned Parenthood work to give you the services you need, whether or not you have insurance. Contact your local health center for more information on costs.
Your abortion may be free or low-cost with health insurance. Some insurance plans don’t cover abortions. You can call your insurance provider directly to find out their policies.
Some government health insurance plans (like Medicaid) in certain states cover abortion, while others do not. Some plans only cover abortion in certain cases.
If you’re worried about cost, call your local Planned Parenthood health center to see how they can get you health care that you can afford.
