Typically, health insurance allows you to add a wife or dependents to your plan at an additional cost. However, if you do not have any legal standing (if she’s not your wife), then you’ll be unable to add her to your plan. Only your own medical costs will be covered by your existing plan.
How Much Does an Abortion Cost?
If your girlfriend is still in the first trimester, she is potentially eligible for a medication abortion which can cost up to $500. A surgical abortion is used for more developed pregnancies (typically past 12 weeks), but these can cost up to $3000.
Other expenses to consider are pre-abortion screenings (ultrasounds, lab-quality pregnancy tests, etc.) as well as follow-up medication, doctor’s appointments, and any related travel if she has a surgical abortion.
Where Can We Get No-Cost Pregnancy Healthcare?
Unplanned pregnancies can be a stressor, especially if finances are tight. However, at Life Choices Center, we believe that finances should not be the deciding factor in a couple’s family planning decision.
We refer for no-cost, on-site ultrasounds and offer pregnancy tests to women to free them from part of the financial burden as they make pregnancy decisions.
Residents of New York State might be eligible for Medicaid insurance. To determine eligibility, visit https://www.health.ny.gov/health_care/medicaid/.
Why Do We Need an Ultrasound?
An ultrasound is important for determining your girlfriend’s eligibility for an abortion, what kind of abortion she can consider, and whether or not her pregnancy is ectopic.
Ectopic pregnancies are located outside the uterus and are nonviable. They also pose a serious health risk and are not terminated by a normal abortion procedure. This is why ultrasounds are vital before scheduling an abortion.
