Affordable Abortion Fees in Jacksonville, FL
Fees for Abortions
We are truly committed to keeping our medical fees affordable to all patients while maintaining our professional, safe, and efficient patient care. Fees for medical services including abortion procedures are based and determined on many criteria, depending on what services you request and the associated complexity and length of pregnancy of your individual situation. Fees to obtain an abortion procedure are generally determined initially by how many weeks the pregnancy has progressed, with a standard cost increase as the pregnancy advances beyond 12 weeks and for factors that may make the procedure more difficult and require a more experienced medical approach towards care. The date of a pregnancy is always calculated from the first day of your last normal menstrual cycle, which is actually approximately two weeks before conception.
Fees in various geographical areas are usually relatively similar from facility to facility, even though the facilities may offer different levels of care, physician expertise and experience, and facility privacy. While we at Florida Women Center don’t utilize a fee menus on our website like some standard clinics, the cost for either an early medical termination (the abortion pill process) or a first trimester surgical procedure are generally comparable and similar in a community areas. While we do our best to be competitive with the pricing of standard clinics in the area, we will always provide patients with the opportunity to receive care from our known and respected staff which allows patients the comfort of getting care from a known area medical doctor.
We recognize that cost is very important to patients, so we always make sure that our care, while offering the most private and dignified environment, is still affordable to everyone, keeping our fees as close as possible to fees offered in the standard clinic environments, but still keeping our quality of care and patient experience at the highest possible level. We provide affordable abortion options and procedures while also allowing patients the true benefit of our private and professional medical care environment and the option to have the procedure performed by our highly experienced physician staff. Based on information you provide us when you call to discuss your needs, we can give you a price for the services you request. There is no obligation when you call, and it’s a good opportunity for us to answer your questions and concerns, to ease your mind and get the process of your care started. We know by experience that it is best to ask you questions to attempt to know your situation before your visit to allow us to provide you with the most accurate price we can, although it still based on information you provide and our medical evaluation before any procedure assures accuracy and your safety. Even with our advanced care and enhanced privacy, we strive to keep our fees very affordable so that all patients can benefit from our care. When you call, based on the information you provide to us over the phone, we can provide you with the estimated costs of care necessary to assist in caring for all your needs.
Things to Look for in Various Fees at Different Facilities
You will find that fees in different cities and some standard clinics can be very different, but the fees in the same city area are usually very much the same for basic services. The fees for advanced or complicated procedures may vary based on many factors, even including the experience and reputation of the medical doctor who will be providing your care. Not all abortion providers have the same experience or can provide continuous care, and here are many advertising tactics used by various clinic facilities relating to fees and services. Some deceitful pregnancy crisis facilities that actually DO NOT PROVIDE abortion procedures often will attempt to confuse or entice patients seeking abortions into their facilities with offers of free ultrasounds and free pregnancy testing. Some facilities will even label standard testing, ultrasounds, anesthesia and even follow-up visits as being “free” but in actuality, these services are always included in the abortion procedure for one base fee. As these services are already standard and necessary services that are part of the abortion process for patients seeking a pregnancy termination, they are included in the base cost of abortion related care. In the past, there were even a few clinics that would offer unusual discounts for travel or coupons for discounts in an effort to try and attract patients. While this is becoming less and less common, advertising things for free still occurs, although these free items are usually part of the routine base fee when you pay for an abortion procedure.
At Florida Women’s Center, we provide comprehensive care for a set fee, which is the standard in mainstream medical practice. As is standard, fees are collected upon arrival and a multi-step individualized evaluation begins, including an ultrasound and an individual meeting with the doctor after appropriate information is obtained during the intake process to review the procedure and answer any questions or concerns. We are relatively unique in that we always provide care individually and our doctor performs all the ultrasounds for accuracy and safety. As is standard and proper in sensitive medical care, we also do not subject patients to group environments or group counseling that were common in the past. Our doctors strive to keep patients comfortable, informed, and safe during this medical transition. Fees can vary under unusual circumstances in rare cases, but the fee only varies if there are circumstances that warrant it, as we treat everyone individually and some patients may have greater needs than others. Our recognition of every patient’s individuality is what sets us apart from others. Although 98% of patients don’t have additional needs, we want to make sure if you do that we recognize them and we let you know so together we can work through them to provide you with the best options for care.
The process of checking in a patient and payment uses a multi-step approach whereby patients pay and fill out numerous informational and consent forms and are personally evaluated by the medical doctor on staff during the process. And if you do have more difficult or special circumstances, it is best to try to let us know in advance if possible and with our proven and recognized experience we will do our best to help you through whatever problem you may have. We, of course, offer walk-in basic urine pregnancy tests at no charge, so that women have a reliable place to go to get this sensitive information in a truly supportive and non-judgmental environment that is licensed to practice medicine and able to give you medical advice and assistance. At Florida Women’s Center, our inclusive fee includes all of the standard laboratory work-up, personal physician evaluation, ultrasound, and RH blood typing, which is part of the normal evaluation of every patient seeking a pregnancy termination. In addition, a follow-up visit is recommended and included at no additional charge.
Finally, there are still a handful of clinics that may provide or use a menu-type system, sometimes even claiming to provide options that are called “VIP” services to allow them to charge an increased rate for perceived privacy and “increased” confidentiality. At Florida Women’s Center, we consider all of our patients as VIPs and we provide our private service all for same affordable price. With our truly large and comfortably designed facility, all of our patients are treated with the highest respect and strictest confidentiality protocols, with proper scheduling making everyone’s appointment as private as we can. We schedule all our patients to keep privacy as reasonably effective as possible, and our thoughtful patient oriented scheduling keeps our patient flow smooth, comfortable, and private. Of course, like all of our care, if a patient has truly exceptional needs, the patient can call our office and arrange for these needs to be met.
Florida Women’s Center focuses on patient care, patient comfort, and quality medical care. We strive to make our services as comforting and complete as possible all for one affordable price.
Our commitment at Florida Women’s Center has always been to provide every patient we care for only the highest level of care in our private and comfortable physician staffed private medical environment. We use only modern, safe, and medications and surgical protocols are provided by known and truly experienced physicians in abortion medicine. Our open and honest fee approach makes sure that patients only receive modern and complete medical care and abortion services.
