PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) is a highly effective prevention medication for people who do not have HIV.
PrEP is available either as a daily pill or a long-acting injectable given by a healthcare provider every eight weeks. In most states, PrEP requires a prescription.
PrEP does not protect against other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Condoms protect against HIV and many other STDs, as well as pregnancy.
Any healthcare provider can prescribe PrEP but not all are familiar with it. Find providers knowledgeable about this prevention option.
Paying for PrEP
Most insurance, including Medicaid and Medicare, cover PrEP. There are also programs that provide PrEP for free or at a reduced cost. PrEP navigators can help.
