What is PrEP?

 

PrEP can stop HIV from taking hold and spreading throughout your body. It is highly effective for preventing HIV if used as prescribed, but it is much less effective when not taken consistently.

Daily PrEP reduces the risk of getting HIV from sex by more than 90%. Among people who inject drugs, it reduces the risk by more than 70%. Your risk of getting HIV from sex can be even lower if you combine PrEP with condoms and other prevention methods.

  • Most private and state Medicaid plans cover PrEP. If you are on Medicaid, check with your benefits counselor.

  • If you have health insurance, you may receive co-pay assistance from drug manufacturers or patient advocacy foundations.

  • If you are without medical insurance, consider enrolling in an insurance marketplace, manufacturer patient assistance program, or your state‚Äôs Medicaid plan, if you are eligible for it.
