Family Planning Associates Medical Group promises to do our best to help all women who want to have an abortion no matter what their financial circumstances. Please call us and ask to speak with a patient representative 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 women 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 insurance representatives if you are having difficulty coming up with your portion of the insurance payment. Family Planning Associates Medical Group 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 women, regardless of their present financial circumstance. When you call, our patient representative can discuss your individual situation and needs.
Increasingly, patients are travelling from Indiana, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Tennessee, Kentucky and Missouri to obtain abortion care with FPA. If you are travelling to Chicago from out of the area and you need to make overnight accommodations, we have obtained a discounted rate at a hotel just a block away from our office.

How much does it cost to have an abortion?
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.
Are you a free clinic?
We offer free pregnancy tests at all of our locations. Our Southside location offers free ultrasounds as well on Tuesdays. Though Family Planning Associates does offer affordable abortion and family planning services, abortion services are not free of charge entirely. Please let one of our staff members know if you are facing financial hardship and in need of help with your payment.
If I have no money can you help me get a free abortion?
There are no clinics in Chicago that are able to offer free abortion services, and unfortunately in the state of Illinois abortion care is not covered by the public aid medical card.
At FPA 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 or has a public aid medical card. 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 for a portion of your care.
