Abortion is not a simple or cheap medical procedure. You could already be stressing about finances if considering abortion.

Most insurance companies cover medical expenses for dependents, such as a child, or if the person is your legal spouse or domestic partner. It’s important to check with your insurance company to see if there are any limitations.

Will Insurance Cover Costs?

Montana Medicaid will only cover abortions provided by physicians in cases of life endangerment, medical necessity, rape, and incest.

If your partner isn’t covered by Montana Medicaid or doesn’t meet the criteria, it won’t cover any abortion costs. Private insurance coverage will vary based on her plan.

If she chooses to get an abortion in another state, she will pay for all out-of-pocket costs if her own insurance doesn’t cover the procedure.

What Should Your Partner Do?

First, it’s important that your partner receives free pregnancy testing to verify pregnancy. Next, an ultrasound is needed to confirm her options.

An ultrasound determines the pregnancy’s viability, gestational age, and location. Your partner needs these details to make an informed decision, protect her health, and identify medical conditions requiring treatment.

At Echoz, we also offer free and confidential limited diagnostic ultrasounds. After a positive pregnancy test result at Echoz, our nurse will determine if and when an ultrasound may be scheduled.

Once your partner has confirmed her pregnancy, she can explore all her pregnancy options. You can be a part of this step if your partner wants you to come along to her appointment.
