Have questions about PrEPSaver?
This section provides information on drug coverage options and explains public coverage through the Ontario Drug Benefit Program. Contact us if you are having trouble paying for your medications or understanding your insurance coverage options.
How much does PrEP cost in Ontario? How do I pay for it?
PrEP is currently covered for many by the public Ontario Drug Benefit Program (ODB) and through private plans. For anyone new to PrEP without coverage the first 3 months are free through the PrEPStart program.
The following people automatically have PrEP fully covered through public programs:
- For anyone under 25 with an Ontario health card and no private insurance (OHIP+)
- Seniors over 65 with an Ontario health card
- If you are on ODSP (Ontario Disability Support Program) or OW (Ontario Works)
- Veterans, or Armed Forces
- If you are First Nations or Inuit and have coverage through NHIB
In addition, most workplace and school insurance plans provide some coverage for PrEP costs. Some plans require a special authorization form which we can assist with.
If you are without coverage or need additional support, the Ontario government has a free program called Trillium that anyone with an Ontario health card can apply to and helps with the price of PrEP. https://www.ontario.ca/page/get-coverage-prescription-drugs
100% of people with an Ontario health card making under $50,000 per year pay $0 for PrEP through PrEPSaver. This also includes all college and university students.
What if I'm still paying something out of pocket for PrEP?
Even if you have some drug coverage, if you’re still paying anything out of pocket there may be additional options. It’s possible your pharmacy may not have connected you to all coverage support options available to you. Different pharmacies can also have different mark-ups and dispensing fees. All these things can make the difference between having a co-pay and potentially paying $0 for PrEP.
What if I already have a doctor or nurse practitioner prescribing my medication?
The PrEP Clinic is also a specialty pharmacy and you are welcome just to use our pharmacy services. To transfer to us have your healthcare provider fax your prescription to 416-961-1250.
Have questions? We are super accessible Mon-Sat through phone, text, or email. If you are in the Toronto area you can also stop by our 344 Bloor St West location. We also offer free discreet shipping across Ontario.
Can I trust getting medication online?
In 2023, it is very important to be careful. Some online services may advertise PrEP, but it is important to be sure to know where the medication is coming from. We operate a community pharmacy in Toronto, ON that is open to the public.
The PrEP Clinic / Ontario Prevention Clinic +pharmacy is accredited by the Ontario College of Pharmacists. This is the accrediting body for pharmacy in Ontario and our team includes licensed Ontario pharmacists and licensed regulated pharmacy technicians. You can visit www.ocpinfo.com to verify any pharmacy. The medication we dispense is supplied by a leading Canadian drug manufacturer.
If you do not see a pharmacy accreditation number on a website, chances are it is not a licensed Ontario pharmacy. Our pharmacists include national leaders in PrEP care and ensure you get all of the right information & support you need.
How is the PrEP Clinic able to save me money on the cost PrEP?
We are an HIV speciality pharmacy with a lot of experience in this specific field. It’s what we do! We primarily only dispense HIV treatment and PrEP medication. Many patients who have switched to our services have benefitted.
Prescriptions that do good.
We are strong believers in community investment and since opening have given back over $80,000 to HIV/AIDS organization across the province.
We currently do not receive any government funding and are proud to also reinvest into our sexual health testing services, on-site walk-in sexual health clinics, mental wellness counselling, and condom/naloxone shipping program.
As the only Ontario-owned and operated province-wide service we are proud to provide jobs locally – where everyone on our team receives a Living Wage. We are also committed to providing an inclusive space and are the only online service that is LGBTQ+ owned and operated.
