HIV prevention and PrEP
Consider HIV prevention medications (PrEP) if you don’t have HIV and are at high risk. PrEP can significantly reduce your risk of getting HIV from sex or injection drug use.
Your health care provider will recommend a PrEP routine right for you. Your regimen may include:
• regular HIV screening and prevention appointments
• taking preventive HIV medications
• a consultation about lowering your risk of HIV infection.
Specialized care from an experienced, connected team
Living with HIV/AIDS and managing your treatment can be difficult. Your comprehensive team of specialized health care providers, nurses, case managers and pharmacists can help you thrive and live as normal of a life as possible by guiding your care.
Your case manager will help you create a customized treatment plan and reach out to you first at every step to address your physical, emotional and spiritual needs.
Insurance coverage and cost
HIV/AIDS care is typically covered by insurance. Your care team can help you get insurance if you don’t have coverage. Supplemental programs are available to cover medications and copays if you qualify.
