Discover the costs of abortion and if it is the right option for your situation.
How Much Does It Cost for an Abortion?
Like any other medical procedure, having accurate information about the costs involved with an abortion is essential. The average price of abortion can vary based on a number of factors:
- How far along you are
- Whether or not you’ve been pregnant before
- Health history and potential risks
- Type of abortion procedure
- The abortion clinic or facility performing the abortion
- Location (state)
- Insurance (if covered or not)
Specifically, the cost of abortion in Vermont and New York ranges from $500 to $1,500 for an in-clinic, surgical abortion. This cost is typically less for medical abortions (the abortion pill), which is available for women who are earlier on in their pregnancy. Below are the various types of abortion that are available, along with the associated estimated cost in NY and VT:
- Abortion Pill Cost: Approximately $300 and $800.
- Surgical Abortion Cost (Aspiration): Starts at approximately $530+
- Surgical Abortion Cost (D&E): Up to $1500 or more, depending on how far along the pregnancy is.
Is An Ultrasound Required To Obtain An Abortion?
If you have a positive pregnancy test (including a home based test) it is a good indication that you are pregnant, but to confirm your pregnancy an ultrasound is needed. A pregnancy ultrasound can indicate how far along you are and estimate the gestational age.
The Women’s Center offers limited ultrasounds to anyone who has had a positive pregnancy test at our center with one of our compassionate medical personnel.
During your limited ultrasound we can, in most cases, determine:
- How far along you are.
- If a fetal heartbeat is detected.
- If your pregnancy is a potentially life threatening tubal or ectopic pregnancy.
- If you are carrying one fetus or multiple.
If you are considering an abortion, you should really get an ultrasound before making your decision to see how far along you are and explore the costs and risks of abortion.
In addition to the actual abortion procedure cost, most abortion clinics will require an ultrasound to be completed prior to the procedure in order to determine how far along you are in your pregnancy. Many clinics and medical facilities will offer an ultrasound on-site at an additional cost or may ask you to have an ultrasound completed prior to performing an abortion.
The Women’s Center offers free ultrasounds and confidential Abortion Information Consultations. During this appointment, we will confirm your pregnancy, determine how far along you are and help you to understand what your options are.
