Fees / I have Medicaid benefits.  Will that program pay for my abortion?

In most states, Medicaid will pay for your abortion if your pregnancy is the result of rape or incest or if your life would be endangered if you did not have an abortion. There are some states where abortion is covered in most elective cases.

States where Medicaid will pay for abortions under most circumstances are:
Alaska, Arizona, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Indiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Vermont, Washington and West Virginia.

Many abortion providers offer discounts to women on Medicaid when the state does not cover abortions. Call the Pro-Choice Hotline (1-800-ABORTION) for more information on providers near you.
