How it works
Get started by filling out the online enrollment application to find out if you are eligible for assistance.
NiceRx verifies your eligibility for medication assistance and notifies you if you are pre-qualified. The pharmaceutical company provides your medication for free, and you only pay our service fee.
We will request documents to be submitted by you and your healthcare provider that are required by the pharmaceutical company to complete your enrollment.
Once approved, the pharmaceutical company typically ships a 90-day supply of medication to your home or healthcare provider’s address. Final acceptance is determined by the pharmaceutical company.
Your monthly Acuvail cost savings if eligible
The Acuvail patient assistance program can provide your medication for free. We simply charge $49 per month for each medication to cover the cost of our services. With NiceRx, you will only pay $49 to obtain your Acuvail, regardless of the retail price.
Am I eligible for the Acuvail patient assistance program?
To find out if you are eligible for Acuvail assistance you can apply online using our enrollment application. Each pharmaceutical company sets its eligibility criteria, and we will review your application individually to determine if you may be eligible. The three main factors to consider are:
- I am a permanent, legal resident of the United States or Puerto Rico
- I am uninsured or my insurance doesn’t cover my medication
- I meet certain income eligibility requirements
How do I apply for the Acuvail patient assistance program?
Our application process aims to make it as easy as possible to apply for the Acuvail patient assistance program. The first step is to complete our online enrollment application. We will ask you for details about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income as this information is required by the pharmaceutical companies. We may be able to help you apply for other patient assistance programs too, so be sure to tell us about any medications you are taking as well as Acuvail.
NiceRx will review your application and determine whether you may be eligible for Acuvail assistance. If so, we will handle the full enrollment process for you and prepare all required documents for your healthcare provider to sign. Once you are successfully enrolled in the Acuvail patient assistance program, we will help you manage your prescription refills by requesting refills on your behalf throughout your enrollment period. At the end of your enrollment period we will contact you for updated information and seek to re-enroll you so you can continue to access affordable Acuvail.

NiceRx is a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Acuvail patient assistance program. We do not offer trial offers or free Acuvail samples. When obtaining your medication through NiceRx, you will only pay $49 a month per medication. This will likely save you more money than if you were to use Acuvail coupons, discount cards, or Acuvail copay cards.

NiceRx may be able to help you if your insurance company will not pay for your Acuvail medication. We may also be able to help if you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility. Whether you have insurance or not, apply online using our enrollment application to find out more.

What is Acuvail?
Acuvail is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Allergan. Acuvail (ketorolac tromethamine ophthalmic solution) is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) used to treat pain inflammation after cataract surgery or corneal refractive surgery, and also to relieve eye itching caused by seasonal allergies.
What doses of Acuvail are available?
Acuvail is available in an ophthalmic solution form, in the following doses: 4.5 mg/mL ketorolac tromethamine in a single-use vial.
Use the Acuvail eye drops only in the eye you are having surgery on. One drop of Acuvail should be applied by the patient to the affected eye twice daily beginning 1 day prior to cataract surgery and continued through the first 2 weeks of the postoperative period. If you miss a dose, use it as soon as you remember. If it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose. Use your next dose at the regular time. Acuvail should not be administered while wearing contact lenses.
Please read the full drug information and always speak with your healthcare provider for medical advice about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
