PrEP Insurance

 
1PrEP Access Changes in 2022
For years Gilead’s Advancing Access plan provided funding that enabled community-based organizations to provide patients free PrEP medications, visits, and labs. Starting January 2022 Gilead’s Advancing Access plan is changing to only provide free medication directly from Gilead’s partner pharmacy. Funding for PrEP visits and labs will no longer be supported by this program. To ensure full access PrEP, including visits and labs, most patients will need insurance beginning January 2022. The good news is there are options available for low or no-cost insurance that will cover PrEP. See What is the Affordable Care Act and How Does It Help Me Access PrEP for more information.
2What is the Affordable Care Act and how does it help me access PrEP?
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is government subsidized health insurance. Recent changes to ACA mean many people qualify for ACA insurance with zero premium out of pocket, while others can get premium assistance, often reducing the cost to zero. With ACA insurance, PrEP provider visits, labs and medications are covered at no cost to patients! Patients can also use this insurance for other medical services covered within their plan such as primary care visits.
