Reminder: Upcoming Webinar October 28
NASTAD will release an updated version of PrEPcost.org in early November to assist PrEP navigators in comparing the best health insurance coverage options for their clients during the 2020 Open Enrollment. The 2020 version of PrEPcost.org will allow users to look-up formulary coverage for Truvada® and Descovy®, the two medications currently approved for PrEP.
|NASTAD is hosting a webinar about PrEPcost.org for health department staff, PrEP providers, health insurance assisters, and community PrEP navigators:
Monday, October 28, from 3:00 PM to 3:45 PM (EDT)
The webinar will provide an overview of new PrEPcost.org features and updates for the 2020 plan year. We will also go over a couple of scenarios to practice.
PrEPcost.org helps PrEP navigators and their clients evaluate the cost and coverage for PrEP across Marketplace health plans, tailoring the search for each client. The online tool will estimate the total cost-of-care for PrEP, including premium and out-of-pocket costs of the medication, clinical visits, and related lab tests. The tool also considers tax subsidies and the drug manufacturer’s co-pay assistance program, where applicable. The results will make it easy for navigators and their clients to compare plans and, once the client is ready to enroll in a plan, PrEPcost.org will connect them directly to trained health assistance professionals for help with eligibility screening and enrollment. A brief video introduction to PrEPcost.org is available on NASTAD’s YouTube channel.
