Are you and your girlfriend facing an unexpected pregnancy? You two are not alone. If you are considering abortion, you deserve to know the facts when it comes to insurance. Finances are a significant factor in a pregnancy decision, especially if your girlfriend doesn’t have insurance. 

Does My Insurance Cover My Girlfriend? 

Typically, health insurance companies require legal obligations such as marriage or domestic partnership to offer coverage to more than just the policyholder. 

What About Private Insurance? 

If you have private insurance, it’s difficult to give you an exact answer as every insurance plan is different, as well as state laws. Contact your insurance provider for the most up-to-date and accurate information regarding abortion coverage for your girlfriend.

Pregnancy Confirmation

One of the best things to do while you figure out what’s next regarding insurance is to confirm your partner’s pregnancy. Though you may already know she’s pregnant, there are details to confirm about her pregnancy to safeguard her health.

The FDA only recommends the abortion pill for women up to 10 weeks, so it’s essential to receive an ultrasound to verify the age of the pregnancy.
