Now available at all PPLM health centers, PrEP is a daily medication you can take to reduce your risk of getting HIV, even if your partner may be positive. PrEP works best when it is combined with condoms and other prevention methods. When taken correctly and consistently, PrEP can be more than 90 percent effective in protecting against HIV.
PrEP might be right for you if:
Your partner is HIV-positive
You're a gay or bisexual man who has had anal sex without a condom or been told you have an STD in the past 6 months
You’re someone who doesn’t regularly use condoms during sex with partners whose HIV status is unknown, and may be at high risk
You have injected drugs in the past 6 months and have shared needles or been in drug treatment for IV drug use in the past 6 months
Your partner is HIV-negative and either you or your partner has sex with someone whose HIV status is unknown, and may be at high risk

How do I pay for it?
PrEP is covered by most insurance plans, including MassHealth and private employer plans.
If you do not have insurance, then ask about payment plans to receive PrEP at low to no-cost for you.
