How to get PrEP:
Getting access to PrEP starts with an honest conversation with your health care provider. Find one you feel comfortable talking to about sex and who is able and willing to prescribe PrEP for you. You will need an initial assessment and blood work done before getting the prescription. And, even afterwards, you need to see him/her regularly. If you don’t have a provider, you may be able to access PrEP through local clinical studies and other services. If you need help with paying for it, the Medication Assistance Program may help.
