This final article in the series of four about RU486, the abortion pill, addresses an important question: the abortion pill price. How much does RU486 cost?
Our articles have been written to provide some general information. Avenue Women’s Center is located in the western suburbs of Chicago. We are a nonprofit limited medical clinic, providing free services to women who are facing unplanned pregnancies. These services include consultations for women who are beginning to research their abortion alternatives. To discuss your personal needs, please contact us by phone or text.

The FDA is not authorized to regulate abortion pill prices, nor does it have input or legal control over whether or not the cost of a drug is covered by insurance. Prices of drug products in the United States are set by manufacturers, distributors, and retailers. Although often around $400, the current cost of the abortion pill can be up to $800. The final abortion pill cost may be affected by whether or not a woman needs additional tests or doctor visits. Another variable that can impact cost is how far along into her pregnancy (how many weeks pregnant) a woman is.
One important thing to keep in mind is not to focus solely on cost. When a service is health-related, much can be at stake. It is important to consider not only financial options, but all risks and everything that is involved.
When faced with an unplanned pregnancy, there are many decisions a woman needs to make. We hope this information has helped if you are wondering about the cost of the abortion pill, RU486.
