United States, Florida, Miami – 09-17-2019 (PRDistribution.com) — Prescribed online and delivered to your door. MISTR makes it simple to access PrEP.

PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) is a once-daily pill that is 99% effective at preventing HIV. MISTR allows users to consult securely online with a licensed physician, complete the required lab work in the privacy of their home, and have their PrEP delivered free of charge each month, all without needing to visit a doctors office.Given its’ accessibility and ease of use, MISTR intends to increase PrEP usage and adherence across the United States. Of the more than 1.2 million individuals who could benefit from using HIV prevention medication, only 20 percent use it, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), although estimates differ.Available in 44 states and accessible via a smartphone, computer or tablet, MISTR has removed the barriers to starting and continuing PrEP. “We eliminated the doctors office visit by providing users a platform free of judgement and shaming where they can speak more freely about their sexual activity than they may with their primary doctor,” explains Tristan Schukraft, MISTR’s Founder. “We also manage all the paperwork to ensure the medication is 100% covered,” continues Schukraft.One of the key challenges is at the pharmacy, where patients are denied coverage or have expensive unaffordable co-pays. “Patients just give up, but now they don’t have to. If someone already has a prescription for PrEP, MISTR will help get the cost of their medication covered and delivered for free,” Schukraft says.Most insurance plans cover PrEP. For those users who don’t have insurance or who are under insured, MISTR manages all the paperwork needed to qualify users for patient assistance programs ensuring patients have little or no out-of-pocket costs. To date MISTR has been successful in getting the medication covered for all its’ patients.MISTR’s telemedicine platform puts PrEP in the hands of those who need it wherever they are located. As outlined in the President’s plan to end the HIV epidemic by 2030, greater access to PrEP equals less new HIV infections. While MISTR is focused on gay men, it will soon introduce a female focused brand.
