Abortion Costs

There are several factors that determine the cost of an abortion. Some of those factors are the length of pregnancy, geographic region, medication needed, and procedure type.

Be aware that some abortion service organizations do benefit financially from your decision. Be sure to educate yourself on the specific organization as you engage their services. Care Net exists only to serve you and does not financially profit from any choice you make. Care Net does not perform or refer for abortions.

  • The type of abortion procedure performed (medical or surgical). 
  • The location where the procedure is performed (costs vary by state).
  • Insurance and income levels (financial assistance may be available for those who qualify).
  • How far the pregnancy has progressed. 

Cost of abortion by type

Chemical abortion is common for women who are less than 10 weeks along in their pregnancy. Two separate medications are administered as part of the procedure: Mifeprex and Mifepristone.  You can learn more about how these two medications work together to end a pregnancy. 

A surgical abortion is more expensive because it must be performed in a medical facility. There are three kinds of surgical abortion procedures. You can learn more about how surgical abortions are performed. 

Most insurance plans do not cover elective abortions. The Mexico Supreme Court required Medicaid to cover the costs of medically-necessary abortions during a landmark ruling in 1998.

How much does an abortion cost in New Mexico?

Chemical abortions in New Mexico can cost around $600 out of pocket, while surgical abortions can cost up to $3,000 depending on which procedure you receive. Insurance companies do not have to pay for elective abortions, so it is important to keep that in mind if you choose to move forward with an abortion. You likely will be responsible for the full cost of the procedure unless there is a medically-necessary reason for it.
