Will FL Medicaid Pay for the Abortion Pill?

If you are trying to find a solution for an unplanned pregnancy, the cost of abortion may be a critical factor as you consider all your options

According to state laws, both public and private healthcare can only cover abortion in cases of life endangerment, rape, or incest. 

At First Coast Women’s Services, we offer no-cost pregnancy services to help you navigate your pregnancy options.

Will Florida Medicaid Pay For My Abortion?

Unless you have one of the above conditions, Medicaid will not cover your abortion. As you research, it’s also important to remember that abortion is only legal up to 15 weeks of gestational age in our state. 

How Much Does Abortion Cost?

Since you will probably pay out of pocket without insurance, a medication abortion can cost about $500. 

If you are farther along in your pregnancy, a surgical abortion can cost up to several thousand dollars. This price does not include other abortion-related expenses besides procedural costs. Some additional costs to keep in mind include the following: 

  • Medication
  • Days off work for recovery
  • Gas 
  • Lodging if you travel out of state
