PrEP is recommended for people who are HIV-negative and at significant risk for contracting HIV. This includes anyone who is:
- In a relationship with an HIV-positive partner
- Not in a mutually monogamous relationship and does not regularly use condoms during sex
- A gay or bisexual man who has anal sex without a condom
- Using injected illicit drugs or shared needles in the last six months
In most cases, PrEP is covered by insurance. We are happy to check with your insurance during your appointment to make sure PrEP is covered under your plan.
Your office visits for PrEP are covered by most medical plans. Resources are available for individuals without medical insurance. Please call for details.
There maybe a co-pay that you will be responsible for, depending on your medical or prescription coverage.
If you do not have insurance, or cannot afford your prescription co-pays, we will work with the Washington State Department of Health PrEP Drug Assistance Program to get you coverage. This process may take several days.
