TRUVADA for PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) is a prescription medicine that can help reduce the risk of getting HIV-1 through sex, when taken every day and used together with safer sex practices.
- TRUVADA for PrEP is only for people who are at risk of getting HIV-1 and weigh at least 77 pounds.
- You must be HIV-negative before you start taking TRUVADA for PrEP.
- TRUVADA for PrEP does not prevent other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) or pregnancy.
Ask a healthcare provider about your risk of getting
HIV-1 and if TRUVADA for PrEP may be right for you.
If you need help paying for TRUVADA for PrEP, Gilead may be able to help.
The cost of TRUVADA for PrEP depends on your insurance and financial needs. If your healthcare provider has already determined that TRUVADA for PrEP is right for you, then the Gilead Advancing Access® program is committed to helping you afford your medication every step of the way. For example, eligible commercially insured patients may pay as little as a $0 co-pay.* But whether you are insured, uninsured, or underinsured, Advancing Access is available to help you.
If you have commercial insurance
The Gilead Advancing Access co-pay coupon card might help you save. If you are eligible, the co-pay coupon card covers up to $7,200 in co-pays per year with no monthly limit for TRUVADA for PrEP. For some people, that could mean paying as little as a $0 co-pay.* For full terms and conditions, visit GileadAdvancingAccess.com.

If you are enrolled in government healthcare programs (such as Medicare Part D, Medicaid, TRICARE, or VA), you are not eligible for the Gilead Advancing Access program. However, Gilead Advancing Access may be able to help you find and get financial support through alternate sources of funding.
If you do not have insurance
You may be able to receive TRUVADA for PrEP free of charge if you
