Will my plan cover PrEP (a prescription drug that can lower the risk of HIV)?

Most plans will cover PrEP (also known as Truvada) but your monthly costs may vary, depending on which plan you choose. Before you enroll, make sure to check your plan’s prescription drug list (or “formulary”) to see where PrEP is listed and how much you might have to pay each month. If you need help, make a free appointment with an assister who has been trained to answer questions about what services are covered for LGBT people. And check out this easy tool to find a doctor or other provider in your area who prescribes PrEP.

If you don’t have health insurance but still want to take PrEP, or if it is too expensive for you even with health insurance, you may qualify for financial assistance directly from Gilead, the company that makes Truvada. Learn more here or contact your local HIV/AIDS service organization or Ryan White center.
