The federal government announced that all health insurance providers should offer Truvada or Descovy, the two drugs approved for HIV prevention, free.
Currently, Descovy is the preferred drug and since its introduction, the price of Truvada has come way down. So physicians would have to convince the insurer to cover Descovy, which is less toxic but more expensive.
Truvada has been associated with bone density and kidney function issues. According to guidance from the federal government under the Affordable Care Act, insurers have two months to comply.
