How Much Does an Abortion Cost in

Illinois

?

In Illinois the average cost of an abortion is $407-857 (without insurance)*. 

However, every abortion is unique and there are several factors that affect the exact cost – like the city and state a patient is in, the gestational age of the pregnancy (as a pregnancy progresses, prices typically increase), the type of abortion (medication or surgical), a person’s insurance coverage, the type of facility (clinic, hospital, or private practice), and whether it’s telehealth or in-clinic care (virtual clinics, like Hey Jane, are often less expensive).

Cost of medication abortion

The average price for a medication abortion in IL is $439*, but can be significantly lower if insurance or a virtual provider is used.

A medication abortion (aka the ‘abortion pill’) is a series of two medications taken over 1-2 days. It is considered safer than Tylenol, and is an effective alternative to a surgical abortion for early pregnancies. These medications can be prescribed by a provider either in-clinic or via telemedicine, but in both cases the abortion itself takes place at home. A medication abortion is generally less expensive than a surgical abortion.

Cost of surgical abortion

In Illinois, the average cost of a surgical abortion is $857*, but ultimately depends on the gestational age of the pregnancy. However, private insurance or state funding (if you qualify) should be able to cover some or all of that cost.

A ‘surgical’ (or aspiration) abortion differs from a ‘medication’ abortion in that it involves a gentle suction to remove the pregnancy from the uterus, and is always an in-clinic procedure. However, both are extremely safe and effective options, and may appeal to patients for different reasons. Surgical abortions are usually more expensive than medication abortions, but in some cases may be the patient’s best option.
