SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Wisp, a sexual and reproductive telehealth provider, today introduced its first medical abortion service in an effort to increase access to affordable, safe and convenient healthcare. This latest launch, now available in California and rolling out in New York, Illinois and Colorado later this quarter, expands Wisp's suite of specialized services for sexual and reproductive health, from emergency contraception and birth control to bacterial vaginosis and herpes. Furthering the company's goal to make healthcare more inclusive and accessible, Wisp's new medical abortion offering is priced 30% lower than the national average cost of medical abortion at $200 and does not require insurance.

"At Wisp, our mission has always been to offer fast, effective and affordable services to meet patients where and when they need it most," said Ahmad Bani, CEO of Wisp. "We believe abortion is a critical aspect of healthcare, and we are committed to providing this as an option for our patients, in the states where it is legal, so that they can take ownership of this aspect of their health with privacy and respect."

Just as it's done with its other services, Wisp designed its medical abortion telemedicine service with patients' safety, convenience and discretion in mind. A medical abortion uses oral medication to terminate a pregnancy and is less invasive to the patient. Throughout treatment and recovery, Wisp's medical advisors and customer care team are available to provide virtual support. Wisp offers a dedicated phone service for its medical abortion patients, with 24/7 access to providers, included in the cost of the service.

As part of its larger commitment to providing critical sexual and reproductive healthcare, Wisp is donating 1% of its emergency contraceptive and birth control sales to its long-standing partners, SIECUS: Sex Ed for Social Change (SIECUS) and New York Birth Control Access Project (NYBCAP), through the end of August.
