Quebec Government Plans to Repay Women For Abortion Fees

The Government of Quebec has established a claims process and will begin paying women who won a class-action lawsuit over supplementary fees they were required to pay for abortions between 1999 and 2006. In August the government was ordered to repay over $13 million to approximately 45,000 women who paid additional fees for their abortion care at private clinics and health centers. The Quebec Superior Court ruled that the women should not have incurred additional charges since abortion is covered under the Quebec Health Insurance Act.
