Cedars Sinai Emergency Department

St. Mary Medical Center Emergency Department

If you have Kaiser Permanente insurance, please go directly to a Kaiser urgent care or emergency department. They will be able to assist you further.
The emergency department will prescribe a PEP starter pack, which is a 3-5 day supply of PEP. PEP is made up of two medicines, most commonly Truvada and Tivicay.
After a PEP starter pack is given you will then need to come to APLA Health as soon as possible to get the remaining one month supply of PEP. Call us at 213.201.5000 to make an appointment.
We will return your call at the beginning of the next business day for your continuation of care.
Transitioning to PrEP after your PEP course may be a great idea for you. PrEP is one pill you take once a day for as long as you need it. Being on PrEP not only prevents you from getting HIV but prevents you from having to get on PEP again, which can be a scary and stressful experience.
Call 213.201.5000 to speak to an Out Here PrEP counselor today about getting on PrEP.
