Dr. David: Got questions about PrEP? #AskTheHIVDoc has all the answers.
Wondering how you’re going to pay for PrEP? You’ve come to the right place! Dr. Demetre lays out options for getting the HIV prevention pill if you don’t have insurance or can’t afford the co-pays.
Do you have insurance? PrEP is covered by most insurance plans, and should be covered by Medicaid and Medicare. There are multiple sources that can assist with any remaining out-of-pocket expenses.
No insurance? No problem! If you are uninsured, there may be resources available that can help pay for PrEP and the necessary clinic visits and tests. One such source is the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Ready, Set, PrEP Program that provides PrEP at no cost for people without insurance. For more information, and to apply for the program, visit GetYourPrEP.com or call (855) 447-8410.
Another source is Gilead’s Medication Assistance Program for PrEP (Gilead is the company that makes PrEP). You can apply for this program to see if you can get PrEP at no cost, based on your income. For more information call (877) 505-6986.
