WEN clients have access to FREE long-acting contraceptives either at the time of their abortion, or within 10 weeks of their abortion. Find out more below.
WEN provides subsidies for abortion care through 7 partner clinics in South Florida. WEN financial assistance is distributed exclusively through these clinics. If you are in need of assistance to cover the cost of an abortion, contact one of the clinics directly (list at right). When you contact the clinic, let them know that you anticipate needing financial assistance. Clinic staff will ask you a short series of questions to determine your eligibility and what assistance can be offered. Typically, clients are expected to pay at least part of the cost of their care.
The cost of an abortion increases as a pregnancy gets farther along. If you have already decided to have an abortion, it is important that you contact a clinic right away. The cost of care also varies from clinic-to-clinic. If you don’t feel that you can afford the cost of the procedure at one of the WEN partner clinics, let them know. If no additional WEN assistance is available at that clinic, please contact another clinic. Each clinic has a unique mix of clients, and assistance can sometimes vary.
It is not necessary to speak with someone at WEN to receive assistance; however, if you have questions regarding WEN, please call 305-670-2266 or email . If you indicate your willingness to receive a follow-up call from WEN after your abortion, someone will be contacting you by telephone after your procedure.
Abortion care is healthcare. It is important that you provide clinic doctors and staff with the most complete and accurate information about the status of your health as possible. They are bound by the same confidentiality requirements as other healthcare providers and want to do everything necessary to make sure you are healthy and well. They can also provide you with information about reproductive health and contraceptives, or you can also find basic information about different contraceptive options by clicking here.
LONG-ACTING REVERSIBLE CONTRACEPTIVES
WEN clients having an abortion at Dr. Benjamin's office, Women & Teens Healthcare, or one of the Planned Parenthood clinics have access to a free Intrauterine Device (IUD) at the time of their abortion. No need to wait for a follow-up visit. Please ask the staff at these clinics about this option.
WEN clients also have access to a free Intrauterine Device (IUD) or Implanon within 10 weeks of the termination at the University of Miami Clinic. This option is available to all WEN clients, regardless of where they've had their abortion. When you visit any WEN partner clinic, the staff should provide you information about the program. However, if they fail to do so, you can inquire at the clinic, by calling the WEN office at 305-670-2266 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Women who are insured under the Medicaid insurance program can also visit any Medicaid provider and receive an IUD at no cost. In some cases, an IUD can be inserted at the same time a termination is performed. If this option is of interest to you, women insured under Medicaid should ask if the clinic they have selected is a Medicaid provider.
