Medication Abortion in New York City:
Medication abortion (abortion pills) is now available at the Jamaica, Morrisania, and Central Harlem NYC Sexual Health Clinics. Call 347-396-7959 for clinic appointments. Walk-ins are also accepted. NYC Sexual Health Clinics provide low-cost and no-cost services for anyone age 12 and older, regardless of immigration or insurance status. For more information visit https://www.nyc.gov/site/doh/services/sexual-health-clinics
If you do not have insurance:
If you are a New York State resident and qualify for Medicaid, you can have the full cost of your abortion covered. You can be eligible regardless of citizenship or immigration status and pregnant adolescents under 21 can enroll separately from their parents. Visit https://nystateofhealth.ny.gov/ or call 1-855-355-5777 to get enrolled. If you call, you may experience up to 45 minutes of hold time but please be persistent. The enrollment process will take between 30 to 60 minutes and if you are approved, you will be able to make an appointment for your abortion just one week after enrolling.
You can also enroll in-person at a designated community location. To find the in-person assistors near you, visit http://info.nystateofhealth.ny.gov/IPANavigatorSiteLocations. NYAAF can also help you find a clinic that will enroll you in Medicaid and perform your abortion, sometimes in the same visit.
If you are not eligible for Medicaid, you may be able to enroll in a Qualified Health Plan. Not all Qualified Health Plans cover abortion and enrollment periods are limited. Visit https://nystateofhealth.ny.gov/ or call 1-855-355-5777 to find out if you are able to enroll or determine if your plan covers abortion.
Not Living in or Traveling to New York?
If you are not a New York State resident or you are not having your abortion in New York, you may be eligible for assistance from other funds. Visit abortionfunds.org to find your local fund or call the National Abortion Helpline at 1-800-772-9100.
