Gilead Sciences, the manufacturer of Truvada, offers two programs to reduce the cost of medications: Gilead Advancing Access and the Medication Assistance Program.
- Gilead Advancing Access: Patients covered by commercial insurance (employer and HealthCare Marketplace policies) can apply for a coupon card. The card, if approved, covers a maximum of $7,200 in insurance copays per year. Most cardholders pay as little as $0 per Truvada for PrEP prescription.
- Medication Assistance Program: Uninsured patients can contact the Gilead Advancing Access program to apply for this program. Your Nurx healthcare provider can help take the hassle out of navigating the process.
Government-issued insurances, such as Medicare Part D, Medicaid, Tricare, and Veterans Affairs, are not eligible these programs from Gilead. However, Gilead might be able to help these policyholders find financial assistance from other sources. For more information, call Gilead at 1-800-226-2056 between 9 a.m. and 8 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Nurx prescribes generic PrEP unless you have a medical reason why you must take Truvada.
