FAQs about PrEP

PrEP is short for pre-exposure prophylaxis.
It's a once-per-day HIV prevention pill that reduces the risk of contracting HIV by up to 99%. The presence of the medicine in your bloodstream helps stop HIV from taking hold, ensuring you remain HIV-negative.
PrEP is recommended for persons with the highest risk of HIV infection, including (but not limited to):
Men who have sex with men and transgender women
Heterosexual men and women who have high-risk exposure (such as having a partner with known HIV infection, sex workers, or having sex with a person at high risk for HIV)
People who inject drugs
If you have health insurance, PrEP is likely available to you for free, as the Affordable Care Act mandates that most health insurance plans provide PrEP at no cost. Freddie partners with Community Based Organizations (CBOs) to provide clinical services related to PrEP – such as consultations, at-home lab tests, and prescription delivery – for free as well.
That means the majority of Freddie patients pay $0 for PrEP.
When PrEP is taken daily, it reduces the risk of getting HIV from sex by 99% and reduces the risk of getting HIV from drug injection by 84%.
PrEP is highly effective for anal sex after daily PrEP is taken consistently for seven days.
PrEP is highly effective for vaginal sex after daily PrEP is taken consistently for 21 days.
