Funding Assistance for Abortion

At Whole Woman’s Health, we understand the difficulty of raising a large fee in a short period of time for our patients without insurance or Medicaid coverage. Because we believe that everyone deserves access to safe, legal abortion care, regardless of their financial situation, we’ve come up with a number of ways to help those in financial need. Our dedicated phone staff will work with you to come up with a solution to your financial challenges.

Whole Woman’s Health helps our patients in a number of ways to ensure you receive the health care that you need:

  • We accept insurance and Medicaid for abortion services in all states where we are allowed to.
  • We employ a financial aid staff-member whose sole responsibility is to help you raise the money you need.
  • We offer Student, Military, Medicaid, and Travel discounts.
  • We have our own Whole Woman’s Health abortion fund, the Stigma Relief Fund (donations always welcomed!)
  • Whole Woman’s Health of Baltimore and the Whole Woman’s Health of the Twin Cities are currently able to see Medicaid recipients.

Whole Woman’s Health staff members are exceptional at helping women in need obtain funding and financial assistance. We are not set up to do payment plans, but we are dedicated funding advocates for women. Whether it’s by personally helping you brainstorm ways to raise money or working overtime ourselves to call funding agencies on your behalf, we will do all we can to help you through this time. We can also complete eligibility for some funding at the same time you call to make your appointment.

Call us now at 877.835.1090, and we can guide you through a short financial assistance screening over the phone. After a few questions, we’ll be able to determine your eligibility and reduce the cost of the procedure.
