Abortion Cost

For many people faced with making the decision to terminate a pregnancy the cost of the procedure is also of concern.

The cost of a termination is made up of different components. For example the consultation, ultrasound, pathology fees and in the case of surgical termination the procedure itself and sedation. At all GCA clinics, if you have a current Medicare card, then Medicare will cover more than 50% of the cost of surgical termination.

If you are not an Australian citizen with Medicare your private medical insurer may cover some of your costs. Enquiry should be made directly with your insurer.

As we are continually booked because of our reputation, we now only take payment on the day.
