Who pays for complications after an abortion?
Medical and surgical abortions have risks that could require medical intervention such as infection, perforation of the uterus, or damage to other organs. Abortion providers do not always provide aftercare, so a woman will need to seek care at a nearby emergency room. Then she will need to check with her insurance provider about costs.
**If you experience complications after an abortion, you should seek emergency medical care immediately.** Be honest with the medical providers about your abortion so that they can provide you with complete care.
