Insurance and Costs


Project Response Testing and Treatment Center accepts most major insurance coverage.  You will need to bring your insurance and photo ID with you to the Center.  HIV Treatment can be provided through your insurance coverage.  

However, if you do NOT have insurance, HIV treatment will be covered under the Ryan White Program or the AIDS Drug Assistance Program and Hepatitis C treatment may be covered through a Patient Assistance Program offered by the Pharmaceutical Manufacturer.  

In most cases there is little to no cost for patients with HIV and/or Hepatitis C that do not have insurance coverage.


If You Do NOT Have Insurance 


If you do NOT have insurance, please contact our clinic at 321-372-5003. Our staff will provide you with information regarding other support options available to you.  Project Response, Inc. strives to provide quality HIV, STD and Hepatitis testing and treatment to everyone in the Brevard county area and will work with patients to seek out all non-insured resources that are available to them based upon income or risk.

Project Response does offer free HIV and Hepatitis C testing. We welcome walk-ins at our office located at 745 South Apollo Boulevard for both tests. 

For a broader range of testing including HIV, Hep C, Chlamydia, Gonorrhea and syphilis, the fee is $50.

Please be aware that tests for Herpes, Hep A & B, Trichomoniasis, and others can cost up to $200 for each test. That may be cost prohibitive for those who do NOT have insurance, however, please inquire to see if you have other options.


Patient Assistance Programs

Some treatments can be costly, especially for those with a low- or no-income status.  In these cases, if you cannot afford the prescription drug, you may be eligible for assistance programs offered by the pharmaceutical companies known as Patient Assistance Programs or PAP.

To qualify, you will need to complete an application for the drug company with information about your financial situation. 

Project Response Testing and Treatment Center can assist you with that process or you can often download the form from the company’s website.

Your treatment team or Doctor will submit to the pharmaceutical company the application, information about your prescription and other supporting documentation, as required.

The drug company will review the application and determine whether you qualify for assistance.

For example, they may pay all costs, or if you have insurance and your co-pay is too expensive, they may choose to cover all or part of your co-pay.



Project Response, Inc. is a lifeline for people living with HIV/AIDS on the Space and Treasure Coasts. As an HIV/AIDS organization and case management agency, Project Response strives to provide the essential services that its clients need to manage HIV disease successfully.
