Our Abortion Fees

Our fees for abortion services are comprehensive. Counseling, lab work, ultrasound, medications, and a follow-up exam are all included in the price you are quoted. If you are price-shopping for a clinic, be careful to learn which services are included in your fee quote from other clinics. We try to accommodate patients who have financial issues by offering financial assistance to those in need. AWC’s fees fall into two categories:

  1. Usual and customary charges which are billed under contract with insurance companies.
  2. Reduced rates which are charged to patients who are paying out-of-pocket for services:

First trimester (surgical abortion)

Our pain management options can help you decide which procedure to choose. Please call AWC to discuss the fee for each option.

Financial assistance can reduce your fee and is available for those who qualify. Please call AWC or request an appointment, and one of our telephone counselors can determine your eligibility.

Many insurance plans cover abortion care services. Please call AWC with your insurance information handy and we will be happy to verify your benefits.

All fees include lab work, ultrasound, information and consents, meeting with a patient advocate, surgical care, most medications, and a post-surgical follow-up appointment at no extra charge.

All fees for abortion in the second trimester automatically include IV sedation. Please call AWC to discuss the fee scale for this procedure.

Financial Assistance

You may qualify for financial assistance. If you have concerns about your ability to pay the full fee, please know that the sooner you can come for care, the smaller the fee will be. A telephone advocate can talk to you about how much you will need to pay and help you think about ways to gather money. You may be eligible for a financial help. If so, a patient advocate will discuss your eligibility and file the necessary form to obtain the funds for which you may qualify.

As a National Abortion Federation (NAF) provider clinic, some funding is available to us, because we are located in a state in which Medicaid does not cover for abortion. That funding is based on income and family size.
