Will My Insurance Pay for My Girlfriend’s Abortion Pill?

Your girlfriend just told you she’s pregnant and your mind may have wandered to expenses and your budget.  You may be wondering if insurance will pay for your girlfriend’s abortion pill.  Thankfully, Options for Women is here to help you explore your options:

Here are our answers to some frequently asked questions related to the abortion pill: 

Will My Insurance Pay for My Girlfriend’s Abortion Pill? 

In short — no, your insurance will not pay for your girlfriend’s abortion pill. Unless you and your partner are legally married, she will not qualify for medical coverage under your insurance plan. 

How Much Does the Abortion Pill Cost in Minnesota?

If your girlfriend is uninsured, you may be looking at paying for the abortion pill out of pocket. The abortion pill typically costs around $600-$1,000, compared to surgical abortion procedures, which can range from $600 to $3,000 or more. 

Because the cost of abortion varies largely based on the procedure, it’s important your girlfriend takes time to understand her unique pregnancy conditions and eligibility. 

How Do We Know if My Girlfriend is Eligible for the Abortion Pill? 

According to the FDA, the abortion pill is only effective if taken in the first 11 weeks of pregnancy. Women whose pregnancies are further along will likely only be eligible for a surgical abortion procedure. 

In order to better understand your options and eligibility, we recommend scheduling an appointment at your local pregnancy clinic.

Options for Women provides no-cost ultrasound scans to help determine the gestational age and viability of your pregnancy and give you insight into your pregnancy options. 

In addition to an ultrasound, we provide medical-grade pregnancy testing, STD testing, information on options, physical and educational resources, prenatal care, and more, all free of charge.
