PrEP – Prä-Expo­si­ti­ons-Pro­phy­laxe

PrEP is a medi­cal pro­tec­tion against HIV. Reli­ably taken, the drug teno­fo­vir / emtri­ci­ta­bine effec­tively pro­tects from HIV, com­pa­ra­ble to the pro­tec­tive effect of con­doms. The PrEP can be taken regu­larly or tem­pora­rily. It is important that you keep to the pat­tern of intake and also have the regu­lar accom­pany­ing exami­na­ti­ons done.

PrEP will now be paid by Ger­man health insuran­ces for people with an increa­sed risk of HIV infec­tion, too!

The accord­ing law came into force on 11 May 2019. Accord­in­gly, the drug and the necessary accom­pany­ing medi­cal exami­na­ti­ons are paid by the health insurance com­pa­nies. Howe­ver, this law must now be put into prac­tice by regu­la­ti­ons bet­ween the doc­tors and the health insurance com­pa­nies. If you are still asked to pay for the PrEP yours­elf, you should send the bills and rece­ipts to your health insurance com­pany and claim the refund!

If you are con­si­de­ring PreP or just want to inform yours­elf, feel free to con­tact us! We will give you the necessary infor­ma­tion to help you to sup­port your decision. Inci­dent­ally, the con­ver­sa­tion with us is accep­ted from the pre­scrib­ing Hano­ve­r­ian doc­tors as a con­sul­ta­tion accord­ing to the pre­scrip­tion policy.
