Will My Insurance Pay For My Girlfriend’s Abortion?

Insurance can be tricky to both navigate and to understand. It’s important to know that your insurance may not cover the costs associated with your girlfriend’s abortion procedure. The expenses vary widely, from $500 to $3,000, influenced by the procedure type and the pregnancy stage.

Hope House Women’s Clinic is committed to providing complimentary, medically accurate information, resources, and services. We aim to ensure that you and your partner are well-supported as you consider your next steps.

Will Georgia Medicaid Pay for Abortion?

Georgia Medicaid will only cover the cost of abortion in certain circumstances. These circumstances include rape, incest, and life endangerment.

The Costs Of Abortion

Currently, Georgia has a ban on abortions when a fetal heartbeat is detected. This means you would likely have to go out of state to access abortion services, and that will drive the cost up.

The costs depend on the type of abortion your partner qualifies for, whether that be medical or surgical.

If she has been pregnant 10 weeks gestation or less, she may be eligible for a medical abortion, commonly referred to as the “abortion pill.” While the abortion pill isn’t as expensive as a surgical abortion, it still comes with risks you and your partner should know about, such as:

  • Incomplete abortion, which may need to be followed by surgical abortion
  • An ongoing pregnancy if the procedure doesn’t work
  • Heavy and prolonged bleeding
  • Infection
  • Fever
  • Digestive system discomfort

If your partner is further along in her pregnancy, you would only be eligible for a surgical abortion. The costs will depend on the age of the pregnancy and the types of medical interventions needed.
