However, as of May 2022, the 3-for-1 pricing deal has been reinstated at Health Smart pharmacies, so if you have Medicare you can get 3 months supply of PrEP for $42.50. Additionally, Health Smart no longer have a Bendigo location but will be able to offer postage as usual. For more information, including how to access PrEP without Medicare, visit prepdforchange.com or pan.org.au. ORIGINAL POST: Joseph Tesoriero from the Prepped Smart and Healthy charity joins us to talk about the recent price changes and how to access affordable PrEP. The 3-for-1 system recently changed to a 3-for-2 payment, so Joseph lays out all the details and how people can get involved in advocating for more affordable medications.

In April 2022 (when this podcast was recorded), PrEP was subsidized as a 3-for-2 pricing deal, meaning you could get 3 months of PrEP for $85 at Health Smart pharmacies.

However, as of May 2022, the 3-for-1 pricing deal has been reinstated at Health Smart pharmacies, so if you have Medicare you can get 3 months supply of PrEP for $42.50.

Additionally, Health Smart no longer have a Bendigo location but will be able to offer postage as usual.

For more information, including how to access PrEP without Medicare, visit prepdforchange.com or pan.org.au.

ORIGINAL POST:

Joseph Tesoriero from the Prepped Smart and Healthy charity joins us to talk about the recent price changes and how to access affordable PrEP. The 3-for-1 system recently changed to a 3-for-2 payment, so Joseph lays out all the details and how people can get involved in advocating for more affordable medications.

Head to Prepped Smart and Healthy to learn more.
