Affordable Abortion Fees in Jacksonville, FL
Fees for Abortions – “Unparalleled safe and caring options at affordable prices”
We are truly committed to keeping our medical fees affordable to all patients while maintaining the highest level of 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 for abortion service providers, but there are some differences based on whether you are seeking care from full time experienced abortion providers with known doctors like our facility at Florida Women’s Center or part-time abortion clinics that are only open only a couple days a week which are dependent on whether they have doctors who will come to provide abortion services. Florida Women’s Center is Jacksonville’s known full time abortion provider, with a well-known respected and highly experienced local medical doctor who provides abortion care every day of the week.

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. As with many businesses, there may be other facilities that will offer reduced prices for various reasons but we always recommend asking who the doctor providing your care will be and all medical facilities should readily provide this information. 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 there 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. ASK for the name of the doctor. If they don’t divulge this information, this may be a fake pregnancy crisis center or there may be some other reason the doctor’s name is not being divulged. 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, in a full time medical practice which is the standard in mainstream medical care. 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 only 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 office strives to keep patients comfortable, informed, and safe during this medical transition and you office visit is almost always less than 2 hours due to our private care. 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 informational and consent forms and are then personally evaluated by our medical doctor. 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.
