Termination of pregnancy

A pregnancy may be terminated at the pregnant woman's request under the following conditions:

  • The woman is required by law to undergo pre-termination counselling. The outcome of the consultation is not predetermined.
  • The consultation must be certified by an officially recognised advisory centre for conflict resolution during pregnancy.
  • The pregnancy may be terminated at the earliest on the fourth day after the consultation.
  • The termination must be carried out by a doctor by the end of the twelfth week. A medical abortion must be induced within five weeks after conception.

The cost of the actual termination is not covered by statutory health insurance funds. A surgical abortion performed on an outpatient basis costs approx € 460, a medical abortion approx € 360. Women with a low income may apply prior to the termination for the costs to be covered. The costs are covered by the federal state concerned but the application must be submitted to the health insurance fund.

The health insurance fund pays for the pre-termination consultation as well as medical services and medication prescribed before and after the termination since the purpose of these services is to protect the patient's health.
