PrEP, or pre-exposure prophylaxis , is a pill to help keep you HIV-negative. PrEP is highly effective when taken as prescribed. PrEP is very safe and generally well tolerated. Most insurance plans (public and private) cover PrEP.
PrEP works for women, men, people of transgender experience, people of all gender identities and sexual orientations, youth, and people who inject drugs.
PrEP is available by prescription from a health care provider or online PrEP service. (Read more about what's involved in the PrEP care process.) Most private health insurance, as well as Medicaid and Medicare, covers PrEP. If you need help with covering copays, there are assistance programs that may help.
