How much does it cost to get an abortion?

The cost of abortion varies and depends on whether or not you have health insurance that will cover some or all of the cost. Your abortion may be free or low-cost with health insurance, but some insurance plans don’t cover abortions. You can call your insurance provider directly to find out their policies.

If you’re worried about cost, call us at 1-800-230-7526 to see if we can get you health care that you can afford.

I'm under 18. Do I need my parent's permission?

Some states require parental notification for those under 18. To learn more about your local laws, you can call us at 1-800-230-7526 or reference this list of parental notification laws by state

A judge may be able to excuse you from the parental notification requirement through a “judicial waiver.” It's important you contact us right away if you need a judicial waiver because we can answer your questions about it and it can take added time to get through the process.

If you have questions, call 1-800-230-7526.
