Medi-Cal Relaxes Truvada Rules

Via Wehoville:

California’s Medi-Cal program has made it easier for low-income people to get access to Truvada, a drug believed to reduce the risk of contracting HIV, by eliminating requirements that those people be provided with condoms and be tested monthly for HIV and that their doctors seek Medi-Cal’s permission before writing a prescription. The decision was applauded by AIDS Project Los Angeles, the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center and Project Inform in San Francisco — three of the state’s leading organizations focused on HIV education and prevention.
