The basics:

  • PrEP is a safe, legal, effective option for preventing HIV
  • When taken every day, PrEP is more than 90% effective at preventing HIV
  • PrEP protects against HIV but not against other STDs
  • PrEP can be prescribed by any health care provider
  • With PrEP you are in control of prevention. There is no negotiating. The choice is yours.
  • PrEP means you are protected and so are your clients and partners
  • Going on PrEP means being regularly engaged in care, and that’s good for health outcomes
  • Healthcare is no longer tied to employment, and PrEP is covered by insurance providers

More online resources:

  • Trillium healthExplicitly notes that they prescribe PrEP, describes what to expect during the first appointment, and identifies that most insurance companies cover PrEP & that New York State Medicaid covers PrEP . They do not have a restriction on where they serve (though they are not located in NYC) [for some reason they even serve clients as far away as Florida & California]
  • NY Gov Fact sheet on PEP has locations where someone without insurance can get PEP. They may also prescribe PrEP
  • NY PrEP guidelineshttp://www.health.ny.gov/publications/0265/
  • NY general info on PEP & PrEP
