Quick & Easy Access to PrEP or PEP

Immediate Access

PrEP-AP Immediate Access allows you to enroll in PrEP-AP for 30 days of limited eligibility for assistance with Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) or Post-Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP) for the prevention of HIV. You can create an account and self-enroll through the Immediate Access portal to receive coverage. If you have already created an account, you can self-enroll using the client portal. You can enroll in PrEP-AP Immediate Access twice in a 2-year period for PrEP. You can enroll in PrEP-AP Immediate Access 13 times in a 1-year period for PEP. You can reference this Immediate Access training video to learn how to enroll using the portal.

Once enrolled, you can obtain a prescription for PrEP/PEP from a provider. If you enroll in Immediate Access as insured, you must visit a provider in your health plan's network. If you are uninsured, a minor (age 13–17), or cannot use insurance you have through a parent or spouse due to confidentiality concerns, you can visit a PrEP-AP Clinical Provider. After receiving a prescription, you can access a 30-day supply of PrEP or PEP from a Magellan Rx pharmacy.

The limited benefit for PrEP-AP Immediate Access includes the PrEP and PEP medications detailed in the PrEP-AP Formulary, and the services included in the Temporary Coverage & Immediate Access Allowable Services.

If you experience issues using the PrEP-AP Immediate Access Portal, please call the ADAP Call Center at (844) 421-7050, open M–F 8AM–5PM PST (excluding holidays).

Temporary Coverage

Temporary Coverage allows you to enroll in PrEP-AP with limited and temporary access to one month of Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) or Post-Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP) for the prevention of HIV, without providing proof of program eligibility. Uninsured individuals can enroll at a participating pharmacy that is contracted as a PrEP-AP Temporary Coverage Enrollment Site. You can enroll in PrEP-AP Temporary Coverage twice in a 2-year period for PrEP. You can enroll in PrEP-AP Immediate Access 13 times in a 1-year period for PEP.
