HIV Prevention Institute, Part 1

Impact of Policies on PrEP Access and Utilization

Given the current complexity of the United States healthcare system, implementation of health policies and strategies to mitigate barriers to HIV prevention are needed if we are to achieve our goals towards ending the HIV epidemic. The USPSTF Grade A recommendation and federal guidance requiring insurers to make PrEP and ancillary services available to individuals without cost-sharing is welcome news in efforts to expand access to PrEP. Our panelists will explore the impact the guidance from the USPSTF recommendations will have on access to PrEP, forthcoming long-acting options, and what barriers arise from utilization management techniques.
