PrEP and PEP

PrEP or Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis is a once a day medication that is used to prevent HIV infection in HIV negative individuals; it was approved by the FDA in 2012. Many insurance plans cover PrEP, and those that are not covered may be eligible for patient assistance program.

PEP or Post-Exposure Prophylaxis is medication taken after possible exposure to HIV; for maximum efficiency the medication must be taken within 72 hours following exposure. Many insurance plans cover PEP and select clinics provide PEP free of charge.
