How Much Does an Abortion Cost in

Washington

?

Determining the exact cost of an abortion can be challenging because there are many external factors that can affect pricing—including the city and state a patient is in—but in Washington state patients can typically expect to pay between $249-1275 for an abortion (without insurance)*. 

Location aside, there are a handful of other factors that will help determine where the cost of a patient’s treatment will fall within that range –– for example: the gestational age of the pregnancy (as a pregnancy progresses, an abortion will generally become more expensive), the type of abortion (medication or surgical), insurance coverage, the facility (clinic, hospital, or private practice—hospitals tend to be most expensive), telehealth or in-clinic care (virtual clinics, like Hey Jane, often offer lower prices due to lower overhead costs).

Cost of medication abortion

The average medication abortion in WA costs $710*, but can be much lower with insurance or through a telemedicine provider.

A medication abortion, aka the ‘abortion pill’, is an extremely safe and effective way to end an early pregnancy (usually before 11 weeks). The process consists of a consultation with a provider (either in-clinic or via telemedicine) who prescribes you two medications—mifepristone to end the pregnancy, and misoprostol to clear the uterus. The process takes place at home, over the course of 1-2 days, and some patients find it similar to a miscarriage.

Cost of surgical abortion

In Washington, the median cost of a surgical (or aspiration) abortion is $1012*—depending on the provider and the gestational age of the pregnancy. Private insurance or the state's health insurance program, Washington Apple Health, should be able to assist with at least some of that cost.

A ‘surgical’ abortion doesn’t actually involve surgery—it’s a procedure that uses gentle suction to remove a pregnancy from the uterus, and can sometimes also include cervical dilation. By definition, these procedures take place in clinical settings, and are usually more expensive than medication abortions. For some patients, however, a surgical abortion can be the best, safest, or only treatment option available.

Laws & Regulations in

Washington

Fortunately, Washington is one of the states with the least restrictive abortion laws. It is legal to get an abortion in Washington for any reason up to 24 weeks of pregnancy—and after 24 weeks, a person may still get an abortion if their health, or the health of the pregnancy, is at risk. Washington does not require spousal or parental consent for an abortion, and Washington law specifically protects clinic safety and access by prohibiting interference. Additionally, Washington allows for abortion via telemedicine.
