Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) is medication to reduce the risk of acquiring HIV through sex or injection drug use. PrEP can be pills or shots. PrEP is highly effective for preventing HIV. When taken as prescribed, PrEP reduces the risk of acquiring HIV from sex by about 99% and from injection drug use by at least 74%.
Get on PrEP
It is important to discuss PrEP with your health care provider before you begin using it. If your health care provider is unfamiliar or uncomfortable with PrEP, we can get them the information they need. Call us at 1-844-367-7075 for more information. If you'd like to find a different provider, you can use the list of PrEP-knowledgeable providers in Colorado.
Pay for PrEP
The cost of PrEP includes paying for medication, medical appointments, and lab tests. But, many health insurance providers, as well as Health First Colorado (Medicaid) will help cover the cost of PrEP. If you don’t have insurance or need help paying the price of PrEP not covered by your insurance, Colorado currently has some of the best financial assistance programs for PrEP in the country.
