Insurance policies do not cover your girlfriend’s abortion. To better understand insurance and other options, we will discuss this information in more detail so you and your partner can move forward confidently, empowered with information and resources.
How Does Insurance Work?
Insurance policies will cover the policyholder and their legal dependents, such as their spouse or children. The policy must have a legally binding connection to assist with medical expenses.
Once a person becomes legally bonded through marriage, adoption, or birth, you must notify the insurance company and furnish them with appropriate supporting documents. After this process, there is still a question of what the specific policy covers, which can only be defined by an insurance agent or in the policy’s information.
Is the Abortion Pill Always the Answer?
The abortion pill is not always the answer. According to the Mayo Clinic, some people should not use this abortion method, and this includes those who:
- Are too far along in your pregnancy.
- Have an IUD.
- Have an ectopic pregnancy.
- Have certain medical conditions, including bleeding disorders; certain heart or blood vessel diseases; severe liver, kidney, or lung disease; or an uncontrolled seizure disorder.
- Take blood thinners or certain steroid medicines.
- Can’t receive follow-ups or don’t have access to emergency care.
- Have an allergy to the medications.
You should also discuss any drug interactions with a provider before using the abortion pill.
Receiving a full physical and reviewing the complete health history will help safeguard a woman’s health and wellness.
