Women have no need to travel interstate for low-cost surgical abortions, according to the Department of Health, who says it's "plainly wrong" to suggest otherwise.
It comes after Labor accused the government of failing Tasmanian women, 11 months after it announced Melbourne-based private provider Hampton Park would begin offering fortnightly clinics from Hobart.
Despite Hampton Park being unable to secure a suitable facility, Health Department secretary Kathrine Morgan-Wicks said surgical terminations were available in Tasmania from local specialists and had been since November last year.
"When a private specialist ended their low-cost termination service in Tasmania, the Department of Health began working to find a replacement provider," she said.
"Negotiations were held with an interstate provider, Hampton Park, which was planning to provide terminations in Tasmania if it was able to source a suitable facility.
"To date Hampton Park has been unable to find such a facility, but the department stands ready to work with them if they pursue this option."
Ms Morgan-Wicks said the continuation of surgical terminations in Tasmania didn't "require Hampton Park or any other provider per se to commence service".
Tasmanian women seeking a low-cost - meaning $475 - surgical abortion can ask for a referral from their GP, Family Planning Tasmania, or Women's Health Tasmania, to receive information on a undisclosed Hobart-based provider.
A travel allowance is also available for women who live outside of Hobart to access the service.
However, Labor have long-called for abortions to be made available in public hospitals, with Health spokeswoman Sarah Lovell accusing the government of pushing its conservative agenda on women.
"While the government claims that low cost abortions are available in Tasmania, the facts are that this is only because some private providers have stepped in, in an act of goodwill, where the government has failed to act," she said.
Tasmania's primary private abortion clinic, Specialist Gynaecology Centres, closed its Hobart doors in January last year.
In the state's North, Launceston's only abortion provider Specialist Medical Centres Tasmania, closed its doors in May 2016.
Ms Morgan-Wicks added that medical terminations were also an option for women choosing to terminate a pregnancy, with surgery no longer the only choice available.
