Illinois Medicaid Coverage

Illinois joined 15 other states in providing Medicaid coverage of abortion care starting January 1, 2018.

Hope Clinic is able to accept Illinois Medicaid for coverage of abortion care and other related services. We are still working on necessary paperwork to cover other gynecologic services.

Secondary to special funding made available, Hope Clinic can provide abortion care at NO COST for patients that are eligible for Illinois Medicaid – even if that coverage is not currently active.

All aspects of the surgical or medical ("pill") abortion appointment: ultrasound, lab work, counseling and informed consent, procedure or medications (either dispensed or prescriptions), IV sedation ("comfort shot"), Rh immunoglobulin (i.e. Rhogam - if needed).
