About Our Fees
Financial assistance is available for many patients – please ask our front desk if you qualify.
Most of our procedures cost $440 – more on that below. Be careful with other offices that charge apparently lower fees - until you learn that price does not include IV Sedation, which might run an additional $100 - $125, possibly making that other office more expensive.
Should IV sedation be optional?
Patients often ask: “Other offices seem to have lower prices because they will let me do it without IV sedation. Is that a good idea?”
Dr. Hindes’ answer: “No, I don’t think that is a good idea; I respectfully disagree with those other clinics. At Healthy Futures your comfort is a priority. I understand how attractive it is to the patient to see a lower price, but at any office the procedure can be naturally quite crampy and there is a reason that good strong IV pain medicine is the standard of care. I do not want patients to be mad at me for letting them do a procedure without IV sedation. When you ask doctors and nurses themselves if they would do it without the IV sedation they almost all say “no – I personally would do the IV sedation.” If you are worried about the cost, please ask us what we can do to help you find financial assistance. We are willing to do it without IV sedation for reasons of safety (the patient has allergies to the medications or has to drive herself home, for example) but there is no discount without IV sedation because we do not want the patient drawn to that choice for financial reasons; we do not want any patient ever feeling that we misled her about it being comfortable without IV sedation. Again - at Healthy Futures your comfort is a priority.”
Surgical procedures done in our office start at $440. Abortion with the pills only/no surgery is also $440. That fee includes the necessary steps – testing, ultrasound, IV sedation, antibiotics, recovery and a follow up visit after 2 weeks. The fee increases the further along the pregnancy is. At 9 weeks the surgical cost is $490, at 12 weeks the cost is $530 and so on.
You may choose to terminate the pregnancy using the medical abortion pill (RU-486 or Mifeprex) if you are less than 10 weeks. The cost is $440.
All funds are collected prior to beginning the abortion. If you need financial assistance please tell the receptionist when making your appointment. We are able to give you information regarding help available to you through our office.
About 1 in 20 women have a blood type called “Rh negative.” If you are that 1 in 20 there is an additional $90 fee for the RhoGam injection you may need. If you do not know your blood type we will do a simple test (at no additional cost) to let you know what it is. What is the Rh factor? It is a normal protein that most women naturally have. However, some do not. If you are over 8 weeks into pregnancy, and do not have this protein, and do not receive the injection at the time of termination it may cause problems with a future pregnancy. An Rh negative patient over 8 weeks will always get this shot, with every pregnancy, whether she delivers, aborts or has a miscarriage.
When you head home you’ll have the choice of carrying out a prescription for some optional medicines for home such as pills for the cramping and for nausea, or just buying them from us. These optional medications are about $15 - $20 per bottle in our office, but it is cheaper with insurance at the pharmacy. Still, many patients just buy them from our front desk for the convenience of it.
