Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is an effective HIV prevention strategy in which an individual who does not have HIV takes a daily pill to stay HIV negative.
When taken daily as prescribed, PrEP is highly effective in preventing HIV.
PrEP is available by prescription from a health provider or online PrEP service (NURX, PlushCare). 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.
