Absolutely. Medicaid and most private health insurance plans cover the cost of PrEP, including the medication, medical appointments, and lab tests associated with PrEP care.
In Ohio, Medicaid completely covers PrEP with little to no out of pocket expense. If you have private health insurance, check with your plan to get more details about how PrEP is covered and ask about the amount of any medication co-pay.
If you have health coverage, but the amount of medication co-pay or deductible would present a financial challenge, you may be eligible for a co-pay card from the drug manufacturer. A PrEP Navigator can assist with obtaining co-pay cards or you can visit the manufacturer's website or call 1-877-505-6986 for more information.
For people without access to health coverage, a medication assistance program is available from the drug manufacturer. To find out if you are eligible for the Gilead medication assistance program, visit Truvada or call 1-855-330-5479.
Our PrEP Navigator is trained and happy to help you access financial assistance to make your PrEP care affordable, just call them at 216-957-PrEP (7737) or text 216-714-2223.
