Most health insurance plans will cover PrEP when prescribed by a licensed healthcare provider. You should always check with your insurance company to find out if they cover the medication and what the co-pay cost will be. Because the medication is considered a brand name prescription, it may be subject to higher co-pays than your other prescriptions. If your insurance company does not cover PrEP, you don’t have health insurance, or your co-pay is higher than you can afford, you still may be able to afford your PrEP prescription.
Gilead, the maker of Truvada and Descovy, the brand names for PrEP, offers co-pay assistance programs to make PrEP affordable for all those who need it. There are also other services and programs that you can apply for that can help you to understand your health insurance coverage and also provide you with assistance in making your prescription more affordable. If you’re looking to order PrEP online from Nurx™ our health care providers can help make your medication as affordable as possible, so you can have it when you need it.
Nurx prescribes generic PrEP unless you have a medical reason why you must take Truvada.
