PrEP is expensive, but it doesn’t necessarily mean you should have to pay for all of it. Often PrEP is covered by insurance, Medicaid, and Medicare. Payment assistance programs are available to help with co-pays or high deductibles. Depending on your insurance coverage, we recommend that you take some time to apply to any payment assistance program(s) you qualify for.
Unfortunately, these programs do not cover the cost of lab work and Nurx cannot cover the cost of labs for you. You’ll be responsible for the full cost of the labs to get started on PrEP. The home testing kits are $25 plus any insurance copays or deductibles, or (if you don’t have insurance) a flat rate of $129 for the Basic kit and $199 for the Comprehensive. If you are visiting a physical lab location, always check on the cost at the lab before you complete any tests.
