Accessible Healthcare Solutions in the Community

Our pharmacists can prescribe PrEP and PEP!

We also provide accessible HIV and STI testing!

Is PrEP Right for you?

PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis) is a medication regimen that HIV-negative individuals can take to reduce their risk of becoming infected with HIV. PrEP for pre exposure prophylaxis is taken prior to potential exposure and the most common form involves taking a daily oral pill which contains two antiretroviral medications, tenofovir and emtricitabine.Injectable PrEP is also now available and involves receiving injections every 2 months once you complete the initial titration. In order to receive PrEP, you must be seen by a prescribing provider—either a medical doctor, a nurse practitioner, physician assistant or pharmacist and complete regular screening visits (approximately every 3 months). 

When taken consistently and as directed, PrEP can greatly (by >99%) reduce the risk of acquiring HIV from sexual contact or injection drug use (<99% but highly effective for prevention infection during injection drug use). PrEP does not protect against other sexually transmitted infections (STIs),, and this is why regular testing is needed. Additionally,  condoms can also help to prevent STIs. 

PrEP is recommended for individuals who have a partner with an unknown HIV status, or have had a recent STI infection, or multiple partners, or have a partner who is HIV positive. Additionally, per the CDC, PrEP can be taken by anyone who wants to take PrEP to prevent HIV. It is important to speak with a healthcare provider about PrEP and to undergo regular HIV testing while taking it. 

The specialty prescription timeline

  • Step 1: Ordering Your Prescription

    The first step almost always involves your doctor, physician, or healthcare provider. Once diagnosed with a chronic condition, your doctor (or you) will contact us to recommend and order a specialty prescription.

  • Step 2: Dropping-Off Your Prescription

    Once we receive your prescription order, we immediately begin the process of filling your prescription. We speed up the process by directly communicating with your insurance provider and your doctor. We work on your behalf to ensure we have the required authorizations and verifications to dispense and fill your medicine.

  • Step 3: Benefits Investigation

    Unlike traditional prescriptions, filling specialty prescriptions will take additional steps and more time. For this reason, we will need additional information regarding insurance coverage and / or previous medical conditions. We work diligently to understand your benefits, work with your insurance company for authorization, and confirm any specific instructions from your provider.

  • Step 4: Authorize Your Prescription

    At Mission Wellness Pharmacy, medications can be dispensed in a packing method that is most convenient for you. From bottled medications to WellnessPak or Bubble Packs, we want to make sure your medication is dispensed in a way that is most effective for your unique lifestyle.

  • Step 5: Prescription Pick-Up and Consultation

    When your prescription is authorized, we will call to schedule your pick-up time. If for any reason your prescription has been denied, we will help you further in appealing the decision and obtaining the medication you need for effective treatment. When you receive your prescription, your pharmacist will answer any questions you may have regarding your daily regimen for treatment and adherence.

  • Step 6: Specialty Prescription Education

    Taking specialty medications may be more complicated than other prescriptions, especially if the medication is new to you. This is exactly why education and health literacy is so important in your treatment. As extended members of your healthcare team, we discuss proper prescription administration, adverse side-effects, and relevant costs.

  • Step 7: On-Going Support and Assistance

    At Mission Wellness, we take pride in taking the additional steps that most other specialty pharmacies do not offer. All of our patients are contacted by their pharmacist to address any additional areas of concern that arise during treatment, including prescription adherence, and promoting the importance of continued medication education.
