Insurance

At most locations, carafem participates with several insurance companies and we are happy to help you use your health insurance in our office. Because each insurance company offers different plans, and benefits vary from plan to plan we must be able to verify what your insurance will pay towards an abortion, IUD or implant before you are seen.

Please make sure you have talked to our staff at least 24 hours before your appointment by calling us at (855) Say-Cara and providing your insurance information. This way we can confirm how much of our fees may be covered by your insurance, and what will need to be paid out of pocket.

Medicaid is accepted in some locations. carafem may be able to accept Medicaid depending on location.
