Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is a daily medication that can reduce your risk of HIV transmission. Studies have shown that it is 99% effective if taken once per day, every day. We prescribe either Descovy or Truvada for PrEP.
Most insurance plans and state Medicaid programs cover PrEP.
There are medication assistance programs that provide free PrEP medications to people with no insurance to cover PrEP care.
