Sex is an expression of love, joy, pleasure, and identity, and safe sex shouldn’t be hard (to have). That’s why we’ve created an easy way for patients to start PrEP medication to prevent HIV and maintain their prescriptions anywhere in the country. Here’s how PrEP2Me works:
PrEP2Me is designed to be simple, fast and accessible while still offering you the personal touch of a real live doctor to talk you through your prescription. Worry shouldn’t have to be a factor when you’re living in the moment, and an online PrEP prescription can help.
PrEP2Me is powered by Central Outreach Wellness Center, an organization focused on providing care to LGBTQ individuals in Pittsburgh, PA. Our experiences as caretakers -- and members -- of the LGBTQ community have shown us the unnecessary obstacles people face to getting the healthcare they need. This includes access to PEP and the PrEP HIV prevention pill, the two most important medications for preventing the spread of HIV.
PrEP2Me is all about removing those obstacles and getting HIV-preventative healthcare to everyone who needs it. All PrEP2Me appointments -- also known as telePrEP appointments -- are conducted online over video and voice chat. This way, you get to speak to a live person about your healthcare needs while staying safe, convenient and discreet.
If you’re in Western Pennsylvania and you do prefer the brick-and-mortar care experience, great news -- you can schedule an in-person PrEP2Me appointment at any of our Central Outreach Wellness Center locations!
Cost is often the most insurmountable obstacle people face to getting and staying on a daily PrEP routine. Taking PrEP every day is vital to the effectiveness of the drug -- while missing a dose here and there isn’t the end of the world, your protection from HIV gets lower and lower the less frequently you’re able to take your PrEP. If you aren’t able to afford PrEP for months at a time, you could lose your coverage entirely.
You should never be without protection just because you lack the funds. That’s why PrEP2Me services, like many provided by Central Outreach Wellness Center, are Free. They come at absolutely no out-of-pocket cost to you. Whether you exclusively use our telePrEP services or you visit our practice directly, we won’t charge you a single copay for protecting yourself against HIV.
Please feel free to reach out to the physicians at Central Wellness Outreach Center with any questions you may have regarding PrEP, PEP, or PrEP2Me.
Yes! Money should never be an obstacle to healthcare. We’ve worked hard to ensure that your PrEP will come at zero cost to you.
If you are under 18 and at risk for HIV, contact Central Outreach Wellness Center by phone to discuss your options with a physician.
