HOW MUCH DOES PrEP COST?
PrEP costs have come down significantly in Ontario making it much more accessible for more people
What You'll Pay
PrEP used to cost over $1000 per month. Now, with generic Truvada approved in Canada, PrEP costs between $250 and $280 per month in Ontario depending on your pharmacy. This is the amount that you will pay for PrEP if you do not have any insurance coverage.
Most insurance plans now cover PrEP, including the Ontario Drug Benefit program, workplace plans and university and college plans. Depending on your coverage, you may be required to pay a portion of the costs of your PrEP prescription.
If you are 24 years old or under, and you do not have health insurance through your parents plan, employer or school, prescription medications - including PrEP, PEP and HIV medications - are free under OHIP+. Just remember to bring in your health card to the pharmacy when filling your prescriptions.
If you're over 25 years old and don't qualify for OHIP+ and you don't have a health insurance plan, you can apply for the Trillium Drug Program.

PrEP may be free for some people in Ontario who are on the Ontario Disability Support Plan, Ontario Works, are over the age of 65, or have 100% coverage through a personal or employee health benefits plan.
