If you’re experiencing an unplanned pregnancy, you might have questions about how much the abortion pill costs. Will your insurance cover it? If not, what will your out-of-pocket costs be? Your bank account may not like the answers.


Before taking the abortion pill, take time to get the facts! Keep reading to learn more about the cost of the abortion pill!


Will My Insurance Cover the Abortion Pill? 

House Bill 214 prevents most private insurance plans from covering abortion, except in cases of life endangerment for the mother[1]. Under Texas law, Medicare[2] and Medicaid[3] can only cover the abortion pill in cases of incest, rape, or life endangerment to the mother. Additionally, under Medicare, a certified physician must confirm that the abortion is necessary to save her life[2]. Due to these laws, you will likely have to pay for the abortion pill out of pocket.

How Much Does the Abortion Pill Cost Without Insurance?

Without insurance, the abortion pill can cost you between $500 to $800. Prices vary based on the provider, the dosage you need, and the state in which the provider is located. Because the abortion pill is not available through a pharmacy in Texas, it is vital that you see a medical provider in person to prevent or diagnose complications before taking the pill.


Additionally, before you consider buying abortion pills online, have your pregnancy confirmed with an ultrasound. Schedule a free and confidential appointment with Mid Cities Women’s Clinic to confirm you have a viable pregnancy and to learn more about your options.

What Else Should I Consider Before Taking the Abortion Pill?

You may need to factor in all the costs of traveling out of state to obtain the abortion pill. You should also consider the cost of follow-up care in case you experience severe side effects or if the pill fails. 


We understand—finding out that you’re pregnant when you don’t want to be can feel paralyzing. It can be easy to panic and make a snap decision. But you owe it to yourself to make an empowered decision! Take a deep breath. You’re not alone! Before taking the abortion pill, we encourage you to:

Receive an Ultrasound

You may be wondering why you’d want an ultrasound if you’re considering the abortion pill. The answer is that ultrasounds provide the insight needed to make the most informed decision for an unplanned pregnancy! They determine three key things: viability, placement, and gestational age.


  • Pregnancy Viability. A viable pregnancy means that the pregnancy is progressing properly. The goal is to rule out a nonviable pregnancy, such as a miscarriage or an ectopic pregnancy—in either case, abortion isn’t needed.


  • Placement. Checking for the placement of a fertilized egg is an important step as it can rule out if you have an ectopic pregnancy. This is also known as a tubal pregnancy and relates to any fertilized egg outside of the uterus. If you do not get an ultrasound to check for placement, you run the risk of attempting to abort a pregnancy that is in the wrong place which can lead to internal bleeding or damage to your reproductive system. It should also be noted that if you have Chlamydia, you are at greater risk of developing an ectopic pregnancy[4]! Ectopic pregnancies are not viable and therefore will not develop, but need to be addressed medically in a different way. That’s why it is so vital for your health and safety to check for placement. We can do that for you!

  • Gestational Age. Gestational age refers to how far along you are in your pregnancy. This is important to know, as you can’t take the abortion pill beyond 10 weeks of pregnancy[5]
