carafem Adds Rhode Island to Growing Number of U.S. States That Can Access Its Affordable, Convenient Abortion Pill by Mail Serv

WASHINGTON , January 20 /Businesswire/ - Now in Rhode Island, carafem, a leading reproductive healthcare organization dedicated to providing compassionate, convenient, and affordable abortion care and family planning services, will expand its medically supported at-home abortion pill services in direct response to increasing roadblocks to safe abortion care. carafem’s by-mail abortion pill service coupled with telehealth resources and opportunities for financial assistance increases Rhode Islanders’ access to safe and affordable at-home abortion care.

“Telehealth services have quickly become instrumental in improving access to medical care in the U.S. Now, carafem is bringing that same option for those seeking abortion care, and we are thrilled to offer our medically supported abortion pill by mail service to the people of Rhode Island,” says Melissa Grant, COO of carafem. “Now, Rhode Islanders can receive the reproductive health care services they need, on the timeline they want, in a place they feel most comfortable, and with a provider they trust.”

carafem’s medically supported at-home abortion pill service is a safe option for those in the early stages of pregnancy and is most often used before 11 weeks. Also referred to as medication abortion, the process consists of two different medications: mifepristone taken during the initial appointment and misoprostol, a second dose of medication, taken up to 72 hours after the first mifepristone dose. In the U.S., medication abortion pills are not available through a pharmacy or in most physician’s offices. The cost of carafem’s abortion pill by mail service ranges from $250-375, and financial assistance may be available and can be discussed with a healthcare professional during the initial consultation.

A person seeking abortion services in Rhode Island can schedule a virtual appointment with a medical provider and receive abortion pills in 1-3 days from the initial video consultation. Along with the abortion pill medication, a person will also receive 24/7 personalized support from a trained care team throughout the process until the final follow-up visit, which can also be completed virtually to confirm they are no longer pregnant.

"There are many reasons a person may prefer a medically supported, at-home abortion," Grant adds. "Visiting with a provider over secure video chat allows for greater privacy, support, and flexibility, especially when it comes to location, timing, and cost. Our hope is that carafem can provide people with options to receive care in the way that makes the most sense to them, allowing them to get answers without leaving the house or playing phone tag. Expanding options for access to reliable healthcare is critical so that people can receive care where and when they need it.”

Rhode Island is joining a growing list of states who can access carafem’s services, including Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Nevada, Virginia, Vermont, and the District of Columbia. Those seeking carafem services can call (877) 290-2017 or schedule an appointment online.
