    Medication abortion (or medical abortion)

    Although mifepristone (or RU486) is now listed on the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme, it is still limited in availability. GPs are able to prescribe the drug if they undergo an online training course and find a pharmacist willing to stock a supply of the medication; it is hoped that availability will expand as more GPs take up this option.

    At the moment, there is no register of GPs providing mifepristone, although some GP providers have consented to have their details listed above. The cost of medication abortion through termination clinics has remained largely unaffected by the PBS listing. Please call us for more information on 1800 177 725.
