- Be HIV negative
- Have an annual Modified Adjusted Gross Income that does not exceed 500% of the Federal Poverty Level based on family size and household income

Kaiser Permanente (KP) members: The CA PrEP-AP is also available to members in need of financial assistance with out-of-pocket PrEP costs. As of 3/1/19 the Gilead copay card is no longer required. KP members can apply at ANY certified CA PrEP-AP enrollment site but will still be required to see their KP provider for PrEP services and pick-up prescriptions at KP pharmacies. Find a contracted enrollment location at this link.
