Are you exploring the option of abortion after finding out you’re pregnant? Medicaid coverage for abortion varies for every state, as some states are more strict than others.
If you struggle with finances already, the high costs of abortion may not be doable for you. These abortion costs often don’t include the necessary pre-abortion and post-abortion appointments.
Here is more information about the cost of abortion, Medicaid coverage, and where to find no-cost pre-abortion care.
Does Ohio Medicaid Pay for Abortion?

How Much Does Abortion Cost?
Unless you have private insurance coverage, as Ohio Medicaid does not cover most abortion costs, you will most likely need to pay out-of-pocket. The costs of abortion vary based on the type of abortion procedure, which depends on how far along you are.
An out-of-pocket abortion costs around $500 in Ohio, and can reach all the way up to thousands of dollars depending on the type of abortion: medical or surgical abortion. Learn more about each abortion procedure, and the risks, here.
