Before you begin PrEP you must get lab tests to confirm that you are HIV negative and have healthy kidneys. You’ll re-do these tests every three months after beginning PrEP. Our preferred testing option is home-based lab testing through our partner lab, which is an option in every state we are available in except for New York. We are committed to providing a convenient and cost-effective home testing option for our PrEP patients.
For those paying without insurance:
- $199 for comprehensive testing, which includes all of the necessary tests to get on PrEP + extra testing for additional sexually transmitted infections (STIs); OR
- $129 for basic testing which includes all of the testing necessary to get on and stay on PrEP
For those paying with insurance:
- We will charge you $25 to cover the cost of the PrEP lab test kit. Once your tests have been processed by our partner lab, they will bill your insurance and you will be responsible for any out-of-pocket costs (in addition to the above $25 fee) including copays and deductibles associated with your plan.
PLEASE BE ADVISED: If you receive a bill, it will come directly from our lab partner, Molecular Testing Labs. Any Explanation of Benefits from your insurance company regarding the lab services will not list us, but rather Molecular Testing Labs or their affiliates.
