Financial Assistance Availability

Austin Women’s Health Center promises to do our best to help all who want to have an abortion no matter what their financial circumstances. Please call us and ask to speak with a Patient Advocate if you need financial assistance. Our friendly and compassionate staff will be happy to discuss financial assistance availability.

We work with outside funding groups. These groups exist to help those who cannot afford the full cost of an abortion procedure.

Financial assistance for abortion procedures can be very limited, for that reason it is only offered to patients who have no other way to pay for the abortion services they need. Patients who have private insurance, flexible spending accounts, or are financially able to pay cannot qualify for this source of assistance.

Funding cannot be used for discounts on co-insurance, deductibles, or other related expenses determined by our patient’s private insurance carrier. Please call and ask to speak with one our Billing Specialists if you are having difficulty coming up with your portion of the insurance payment. Austin Women’s Health Center reserves the right to decline an itemized receipt to patients who have used assistance to pay for an abortion service.

We strive to make our services as accessible as possible to all, regardless of their present financial circumstance. When you call, a Patient Advocate can discuss your individual situation and needs.

Increasingly, patients are traveling from all over Texas and surrounding areas, including Mexico, to obtain abortion care with Austin Women’s Health Center. If you are traveling to Austin from out of the area and you need to make overnight accommodations, please contact Fund Texas Choice or The Bridge Collective for assistance.

Funding FAQs

Our fees are based on the length of pregnancy and your out-of-pocket cost will depend on your insurance coverage. Please call us for more information. We will work with you and help you obtain financial assistance, when possible.

Unfortunately, we do not offer free services at this time. We offer affordable pregnancy tests and ultrasounds. Though Austin Women’s Health Center does offer affordable abortion and family planning services, abortion services are not free of charge. Please let one of our staff members know if you are facing financial hardship and in need of help with your payment.

There are no clinics in Texas that are able to offer free abortion services, and unfortunately abortion care is not covered by Medicaid or Medicare.

At AWHC we work very hard to make sure that all patients can afford our services regardless of insurance coverage. We offer discounted fees when a patient is uninsured. Many of our patients receive financial assistance from The National Abortion Federation and other abortion funds when possible. We will work with you to help you get financial assistance, but this assistance is limited and you will have to pay the majority of fees for your care.
