TelePrEP in NYC
  Starting PEP within 72 hours after possible HIV exposure from sex or sharing needles can protect you from HIV. PEP pills are taken for 28 days after a known or suspected exposure. If you answer "yes" to any of these questions, PEP may be right for you:
If you may be at risk for HIV, there's a once-daily pill that can reduce your risk by 99 percent. Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) may be right for you. PrEP is highly effective at reducing your risk of contracting HIV. Once you are on PrEP, you will need to have simple lab tests done every three months to ensure that your liver and kidney functions are normal and that you remain HIV-negative.
You will also be tested for STIs when you come in for your labs.
Find out if you qualify for PrEP
Mount Sinai's TelePrEP service allows you to use your phone, tablet, laptop, or desktop computer to have a video visit with a licensed medical provider. Before you begin PrEP, you will need a blood test to determine that you are HIV-negative. If PrEP is right for you, we will mail the medication to you discreetly within one week. We will automatically refill the prescription when you have your next TelePrEP visit.
For more information, or if you have questions or concerns about insurance or costs, call us at 929-400-7739.
If you may have been exposed to HIV within the last 72 hours, please call New York City's Post Exposure Prophylaxis Hotline (New York City's PEP Hotline) at 844-3-PEPNYC (844-373-7692).
