Preventive Care After the PrEP Ruling

September 12, 2022

Preventive Care After the PrEP Ruling

A Texas judge ruled that the government could not compel private insurance companies to cover the costs of PrEP, a medication that can greatly reduce the risk of HIV infection. The ruling was based on the argument that PrEP is not “medically necessary” for people who are not already HIV-positive. However, many experts believe that this ruling could ultimately hamper efforts to prevent new infections.

On this episode of CareTalk, John and David discuss the broader implications the ruling could have on preventative care. Is it a big deal or is it a nothing burger?
