Our standards

We understand all our patients are different and that people need and expect a high and consistent standard of care, especially when it comes to their sexual and reproductive health.

Providing timely, supportive, non-judgemental care, as safely as possible, is what we stand for. It is something for which we have received recognition, from Australia’s leading healthcare assessment and accreditation provider, the Australian Council on Healthcare Standards (ACHS).

Accreditation requires us to adhere to strict standards, processes and to monitor our clinical outcomes closely. As evidence of our commitment, we were recently awarded 7 Met With Merit Awards for demonstrating a high level of quality (above minimum requirements for achieving accreditation), meaning a culture of safety, evaluation and improvement was evidenced throughout our organisation.

In addition to our focus on exceeding healthcare standards, we believe in a supported patient journey and our model of care reflects this. As such, our prices include:

  • access to interpreters and decision based counselling;
  • 24-hour nurse on call aftercare service;
  • all pre-care and post medical abortion follow ups;
  • secondary medical and surgical options in the event of a medical abortion being unsuccessful;
  • and all required ultrasounds and pathology (including STI screenings) for in-clinic patients.

Costs and prices

    Marie Stopes Australia is a non profit private healthcare provider. Our national network includes medical clinics and centres, as well as accredited day surgeries.

    Some of the factors that influence the cost of services are:

    • Which clinic you choose to attend
    • Gestation
    • Type of sedation chosen
    • What kind of contraception you may choose
    • Whether you have private health insurance and what your policy covers

    Most of our day surgeries are licensed for the purposes of private health claiming. Please check our clinic locations page to find out which of our clinics are licensed for this purpose.

    Financial hardship

    If you are experiencing financial hardship, you may be eligible for funding from Marie Stopes Australia through our community partners.

    Alternatively, you may be able to apply for a safe, fair and affordable loan under a No Interest Loan Scheme (NILS) to cover the cost of your procedure.

    The maximum loan you can apply for is $1500, or $2000.

    NILS can be used for:

    • Contraception
    • Termination of pregnancy between 5-23 weeks
