It is generally recommended that PrEP be used in combination with other sexual safety methods.
PrEP / PEP
PrEP is a daily pill that is 99% effective in preventing HIV. Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis is a prescription that can prevent transmission of HIV. When taken as prescribed, it is highly effective and can offer peace of mind for anyone who is sexually active or at-risk.
PrEP is for everyone, regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation or relationship status. According to the CDC, about 25% of new HIV infections are transmitted through heterosexual contact and 69% for men who have sex with men.
Getting started is as easy as 1-2-3!
Worried about co-pays or filing claims? PrEP is free to those with or without insurance and includes the lab work, visit, and medication. We encourage a follow-up every three months including both HIV/STI testing and treatment if needed. PrEP does not prevent or protect from other STIs.
PEP is Post-Exposure Prophylaxis and is most effective if initiated within 72 hours after possible exposure.
We believe that protecting your health should be free of stigma and provided with respect. Contact one of our medical providers to help determine if PrEP is right for you.
HIV and PrEP services are free to patients.
Take advantage of our PrEP NoW program. Test negative for HIV (results in 1 minute) and you will immediately receive a 2-week supply of PrEP.
PrEP is 92 - 95% effective in preventing HIV, but only if taken daily as prescribed.
When you're ready, you will need to schedule an appointment with our navigators to get tested to make sure you do not have HIV. It is important to stay connected to your doctor and navigator for follow-up testing, refills and discussions about any side effects.
In most cases your private insurance can help pay for PrEP. However, we do have assistance programs for those who qualify.
PrEP is only intended for HIV negative individuals prior to a potential exposure. PEP is Post-Exposure Prophylaxis and is most effective if initiated within 72 hours after possible exposure.
