CHOICES Is Here For You!

With the new changes to laws, it has become difficult, if not impossible to receive an abortion in many states. We will help you come to CHOICES to receive the highest quality abortion care. We can help you with travel details including airfare and housing, the costs of your trip, and the cost of your abortion.

Our Out-of-Town Program was created with your needs in mind. In most cases, you can get an appointment within 1-3 days. New York State allows abortion up to 24 weeks with NO limitations. NO age restrictions. NO requirements that you notify parents or partners, NO waiting periods.

Our All-Inclusive Abortion Program Includes​:

Transportation to and from NYC to our Leading Abortion Clinic including airfare. If you are worried about how to get to NYC from Texas, Florida, Oklahoma, Kentucky, Arizona, Idaho, Wyoming, or other states and cities, we work closely with funding organizations that can help cover your travel costs. CHOICES is conveniently located in Queens, New York near JFK Airport, and an easy commute via subway, train, bus, or car from all New York City boroughs.

Overnight housing, if needed, with reduced hotel rates or a safe stay with a volunteer. We can also connect you with Haven Coalition, a volunteer network of caring people who will host your stay at one of their homes and, if needed, can arrange for someone to accompany you to your appointment at CHOICES.

Alternative Funding

Please bring the following original documents with you: CHOICES accepts Medicaid, most healthcare insurance and debit cards, credit cards, and cash.

CHOICES is committed to helping ALL women obtain abortions, even those from states with restrictive abortion laws. Our Out-of-Town program is designed to encourage and support women from other states to come to our abortion clinic to carry out their reproductive decisions. We accept Medicaid from New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Delaware, and will help patients arrange affordable transportation and hotel accommodations. We are affiliated with Haven Coalition, a volunteer organization that provides overnight housing for abortion patients who need it and provides an escort for patients to and from abortion.

Funding Assistance

Choices Women’s Medical Center works closely with the following funding agencies to provide financial assistance for patients seeking abortion services at our facility.

Women’s Reproductive Rights Access Project (WRRAP) is a non-partisan, non-profit organization helping women gain access to safe, legal abortion services and emergency contraceptives. We work with pre-qualified, reputable reproductive health clinics across the U.S. on behalf of disadvantaged women in need.

National Network of Abortion Funds (NNAF) works with members to remove financial and logistical barriers to abortion access by centering people who have abortions and organizing at the intersections of racial, economic, and reproductive justice.

National Abortion Federation (NAF) operates the largest national, toll-free, multi-lingual Hotline for abortion referrals and financial assistance in the U.S. and Canada. NAF provides callers with accurate information, confidential consultation, options counseling, and referrals to providers of quality abortion care.

Additional Info

CHOICES understands and respects that not every person with the capacity for pregnancy identifies as a woman. We respect each individual’s gender identity, expression, and experience, and desire to be helpful and compassionate to all who need information about abortion or support.  As an expression of this concern, CHOICES initiated the first Trans Health Care Program in New York State in 2016.

While we do make an effort to use gender-inclusive language (person/people/they/them/patient) throughout our website, we do of course use woman/women/girls. We do so in order to acknowledge the long history of gender discrimination targeting women, the specialized health care that we provide, our experience with hundred of thousands of women using our services and the biological reality that only people with uteruses are biologically capable of become pregnant and carrying a fetus.

CHOICES believes that cost should never keep a person from having access to health care. If you’re asking, “Where can I get free or low-cost health services?” our Financial Counselors can help you apply on-site to government programs that can cover your medical care. You can apply in the morning and get services that same day. We take most insurances and work closely with nonprofits that fund abortion services and help with transportation and overnight housing for patients who need it. We take credit cards, cash and can arrange payment plans. Learn More Here.

CHOICES will never turn patients away simply because they can’t afford care. If you’re one of the many people wondering, “Where can I get free or low-cost health services?” staff members will help create a financial plan that suits each patient’s individual circumstances, including Emergency Medicaid, because no one should have to compromise the quality of their health care due to their economic status. Learn More Here.

CHOICES accepts most private insurances, subject to verification:

  • Affinity
  • Cigna
  • Empire BCBS
  • Health first
  • Medicaid
  • Medicare
  • Wellcare
  • And many more!
