PrEP Costs

PrEP Costs

Greetings, glitterati! Today we’ve got some juicy gossip that’s hotter than a two-dollar wig on a summer’s day: the cost of HIV PrEP.

What is PrEP?

PrEP, short for Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis, is an FDA-approved medicine that’s 99% effective at preventing you from getting HIV.

In other words?

PrEP is like having a fierce bodyguard, but for your sexual adventures. It’s your personal bouncer at the door of HIV, making sure that virus can’t get in and ruin your fabulous party. You know that friend who always carries an umbrella, even on a sunny day? Well, PrEP is like that, but instead of rain, it protects you from HIV showers. It’s like wearing an invisible superhero cape that says, “Not today, HIV!” Think of PrEP as your sassy shield, shielding you from the naughty HIV germs. It’s like having a magical forcefield around you, saying, “Uh-uh, honey, you’re not getting in here!”

Yea, But What is the Cost of Prep?


Let’s be honest, the price tag on PrEP can be more frightening than a bare-faced drag queen.

Brace yourselves for this jaw-dropping truth: a PrEP prescription can leave you gasping with a price tag soaring over $21,000 a year!

Can you imagine? Without insurance or payment programs, a thirty-day supply will set you back a hefty $1,758.00! It’s enough to make your perfectly painted face melt. But fear not, my darlings, for Q Care Plus has a secret technique to get that sweet, sweet PrEP for FREE.

Does Insurance Cover PrEP Costs?

Let’s talk about that bill that strutted into our lives in 2019, demanding that private insurance companies in the US cover the full shebang of PrEP costs. Yas, queen, you heard it right! Deductibles, co-pays, and even those extra fees are all snatched up by insurance companies, leaving you with PrEP at absolutely no cost!

Well, almost no cost.

There might still be some sneaky additional costs lurking in the shadows. So, don’t forget to channel your inner Nancy Drew and sleuth it out with your provider. We don’t want any unexpected surprises, now do we?

Remember, my fierce friends, insurance may be covering the main event, but those after-party expenses could still be on you. So, double-check, triple-check, and sashay your way through the fine print to ensure you’re fully prepared for the PrEP journey. Good news is Q Care Plus can help you with that.
