What is PrEP?

Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) is a medication which can be taken to prevent HIV infection. It is PBS listed making it much cheaper to access through Australian pharmacies. PrEP is not a substitute for safe sex practices, it is designed to be an additional measure to help keep you safe against HIV. 

A common misconception is that PrEP will protect you against all STIs. While that would be amazing, it unfortunately is not true.  PrEP will only protect you against HIV.

Why PrEP Connect?

In Australia, the demand for PrEP has increased substantially. Unfortunately, medical services are currently not able to meet this demand and people are left with very limited and often expensive options to source PrEP. PrEP Connect was founded by an endorsed Sexual Health Nurse Practitioner, as an innovative and patient-focused approach to reducing health inequality of PrEP provision in Australia. Our practice prides itself on being an inclusive service, welcoming all persons regardless of sexuality, gender identity, race, culture, genetics or life experience.

How much does it cost?

PrEP Connect prides itself on providing affordable, and contemporary healthcare. To ensure sustained delivery of our service to our growing client base, we have simplified our pricing structure and implemented a small price rise which will come into effect 1 September 2024. Due to the increase in Medicare rebates as of 1 July 2024, the out of pocket expense will only increase by around $4. 

 

Standard consultations are less than 20 minutes.

Long consults are more than 20 minutes.

Typically new clients and appointments covering several issues will require a long consultation. Regular PrEP and STI screening appointments typically only require a standard consult.

Medicare rebates are available for all eligible consultations.

We value our time so a $40 fee for not attending an appointment will be charged if no notice is given prior to the appointment.

​​

No Medicare? No problem

Medicare ineligible people can still have a consultation with a practitioner for the same fee, however no Medicare rebate will be available. 

Pathology services are available for persons without Medicare for a fee. PrEP Connect strongly encourages those without Medicare to discuss coverage with their health insurance provider

People without Medicare can access non-PBS PrEP via Australian pharmacies from $49.99 per bottle (1 month supply)

PrEP Connect also offers free translator services for all consultations. Email us at info@prepconnect.com.au.
