PrEP, or pre-exposure prophylaxis, is a medicine that helps prevent HIV. PrEP is about 99% effective at reducing the spread of HIV if taken as directed. PrEP can be used by individuals of any gender or sexual orientation. Call today or use our online scheduling tool to book an appointment online and find out more about PrEP.
PrEP is usually dosed as an ongoing daily pill or bi-monthly injection for people who may be exposed to HIV in the future. It can be very effective in preventing HIV when taken correctly. PrEP can be prescribed in office or through telehealth appointments.
Most insurance plans and state Medicaid programs cover the treatment. Under the Affordable Care Act, PrEP must be free under almost all health insurance plans. You cannot be charged for your PrEP medication or the clinic visits and lab tests you need to maintain your prescription.
If you don’t have insurance or Medicaid coverage, there are programs that make PrEP medication available at no cost to qualifying patients. The team can also work with other programs to help reduce the cost of these medications.
