Note from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health:

PrEP is prescribed by a health care provider, so talk to yours to find out if PrEP is the right HIV prevention strategy for you. You must take PrEP daily for it to work. Also, you must take an HIV test before beginning PrEP to be sure you don’t already have HIV and every 3 months while you’re taking it, so you’ll have to visit your health care provider for regular follow-ups. If you are looking for a local provider, select a site in your area by referring to the map above and calling for information and to schedule an appointment. The cost of PrEP is covered by many health insurance plans, and there is a medication assistance program that provides PrEP to people with limited income and no insurance. A health navigator can assist you. More information can be found at www.mass.gov/dph/prep
