Does anyone know if the Gilead co-pay program will be available in 2018? I called Gilead and they didn't know.

I was taking PreP and it was completely covered through my employer. Just went to refill it last week and found they changed it from Tier 2 and considered preventive to Tier 3. They want a $592.11 copay so I stopped taking it. Seems like coverage is moving in the wrong direction. Gilead's $3600 is only about 1/2 of the copay so it still leaves $292/month. This doesn't include the quarterly Dr visits and labs. So I will just be taking my chances now.

I started Truvada back in September. My insurance won't cover it and the cost was $1,522.17 for a month supply. I got a copay card and I got Truvada suppply for 2 months. When I went back to the pharmacy for my third month suppply, I was told I needed to pay around $900 since I was up to the limit to the copay, that I can't afford, so now I'm not taking Truvada.

My copay assistance maxed out at $3,600 in September. Trying to find assistance in lowering the copay through other sources.

I received a Co-Pay card from Gilead for my PREP Truvada, took it to my pharmacist at Kaiser Permanente and was told that they "will not accept coupons." Just FYI, Kaiser will not participate in this program.
