MI Medicaid Coverage for Abortion

When it comes to Medicaid abortion coverage, every state is different with its laws regarding this topic. Many states only allow abortion coverage in cases of life endangerment or allow exceptions for rape and incest. Since every state has different abortion laws, things can get confusing.

The state of Michigan does not allow Medicaid to cover abortion, therefore making it impossible to get an abortion at no cost to you. Our team at Pregnancy Care Center of Petoskey offers a variety of free resources to women who face unexpected pregnancies. You are not alone.

Out-of-Pocket Abortion Costs

Since Medicaid doesn’t cover abortion costs in Michigan – it will be up to you to pay if you move forward. In Michigan, abortion costs vary based on the type of abortion procedure you receive and multiple other factors.

The Guttmacher Institute shares that the average cost for a first-trimester abortion in the US is $650-$750, second-trimester abortions around $1,200, and later-term abortions around $3,000 or higher. Abortion costs also vary based on the clinic. 

Typical costs of abortion in Michigan (without insurance coverage):

  • Medication Abortion / Abortion Pill: $495
  • Suction Aspiration / Vacuum Abortion (6-12 weeks gestation): $495-$895
  • Dilation and Curettage (13-16 weeks gestation) : $850-$1600
  • Dilation and Evacuation (17-21 weeks gestation): $1500-$2100
