Can anyone tell me how much my first doctor visit will cost without insurance?

I have a full time job as a Nursing Assistant but Im not able to sign up for my insurance until October. I missed my first period at the end of July. I have yet to go see a doctor because I tried to apply for emergency medical insurance but I didnt qualify because they said that I make too much money. (more than 15,000 a year pshhh.) I dont know what to do, or even what to expect. This is my first pregnancy. I'm not even sure how far along I am, but I know I have to get my prenatal work started ASAP. Could there be something wrong with my baby if I havent went yet?

  • I didn't go to the doctor until I was 4months and I didn't have insurance either until I was 5 1/2 months. the app cost $50 and I paid for my first ultrasound which was $120.
    The only thing I regret is that I was RH neg and I didnt find out until 34wks. but everything else is GREAT!
    Good LUCK!!!!

  • I didn't see a dr with my first until 20 weeks because we didn't have insurance. Going to the doctor has nothing to do with the condition of your baby. They don't do anything to do/with it. Personally, I'd just wait til my insurance kicked in.

    As far as cost goes, nobody can tell you that expect the office you'll be going to. Every office, doctor, etc. is different.

  • Our doctors office doesnt even see you til 7 weeks, which is right around where you are now, so I totally wouldnt worry about no pre-natal care at this point. But I would start looking in to a doctors office. You will need to be seen in Sept and then you should have your insurance by the next appt. Do you know when your LMP was? If you do, then you shouldnt need to have an u/s but you will most likely need blood work which can be pricey. The doctors office visits here are about $125-$150

  • Hmm If I remember right with this pregnancy it was between 150 and 200 for the first apt. You should really look into prenatal medicaid and WIC. you can get signed up for WIC with your local health dept. They will help with the cost of formula and such like that.. Good luck with your pregnancy and Congrats =)

  • can you check and see the cost if you were to go to the health dept? or even planned parenthood? maybe these option would be less expensive?

  • Call the doctor's office. They will tell you.

    For us, an out of pocket office visit is about $100.
