Reimbursement of PrEP

Reimbursement of PrEP

Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) is an HIV prevention strategy that uses antiretroviral drugs to lower HIV-negative persons’ risk of HIV-infection. PrEP is best used in an HIV combination prevention strategy, comprising medical, as well as behavioral measures (eg. condom use).

The Joint Sickness Insurance Scheme (JSIS) refunds 85% of the purchase of PrEP if the conditions of prior authorisation are followed.

To obtain a refund of PrEP , you first need to request prior authorisation via JSIS online (to be done on a yearly basis), attaching the corresponding initial prescription by a specialised doctor. Once the authorisation is approved, you can ask for refund of PrEP prescribed to you by your doctor.
