Are you facing an unplanned pregnancy? If you’re trying to decide if abortion is right for you and are curious about the costs you might face, you’re in the right place. Understanding whether or not Medicaid will cover an abortion in the state of Wyoming can help inform your choice.
True Care Women’s Resource Center is here to help you explore your options, the associated costs, and know where to find affordable care near you.
Will Wyoming Medicaid Pay for the Abortion Pill?
In the state of Wyoming, Medicaid coverage is only available for abortions accessed due to life endangerment, rape, or incest. If you are hoping to access an abortion for personal reasons outside of the requirements, you will likely be responsible for paying for the cost out of pocket.
How much will the abortion pill cost me out of pocket?
As you decide if abortion is right for you, it’s important that you have a realistic idea of the costs you may be facing. The cost of an abortion will largely depend on the type of procedure you are eligible for.
Women under 10 weeks gestation, will be eligible for either a medical or surgical abortion. At this stage of pregnancy, both of the procedures will cost around $500. Pregnancies that are further along will cost anywhere from $500 to $3,000, and sometimes more depending on your unique pregnancy conditions.
To know the exact cost you might be facing, we recommend scheduling an appointment for an ultrasound scan at your local pregnancy clinic. The ultrasound scan will reveal the age of your pregnancy, as well as any health conditions that may lead to abortion complications. An ultrasound scan is free when accessed through your local pregnancy clinic.
Are there any hidden costs when it comes to abortion?
In addition to the cost of your abortion procedure, you should consider other medical costs you might encounter, including the cost of necessary pre-abortion screenings (free through your local pregnancy clinic), emergency care in case of abortion complications, medications, and follow-up appointments. You should also consider travel costs.
