Am I eligible for the Byooviz patient assistance program?
To find out if you are eligible for Byooviz 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 Byooviz patient assistance program?
Our application process aims to make it as easy as possible to apply for the Byooviz 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 Byooviz.
NiceRx will review your application and determine whether you may be eligible for Byooviz 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 Byooviz 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 Byooviz.

What is Byooviz?
Byooviz is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Biogen Inc and Samsung Bioepis co., ltd. It is a vascular endothelial growth factor inhibitor (anti-VEGF), used to treat patients with:

Byooviz is not recommended for the treatment of patients with diabetic macular edema (DME) or diabetic retinopathy (DR).
Byooviz is the first biosimilar to Genentech’s Lucentis. It is also the first ophthalmology biosimilar treatment option to gain FDA approval in the United States. Biosimilar means that the biologic product is approved based on data showing that it is highly similar to an FDA-approved biological product, known as the reference product and that there are no clinical differences between the biosimilar product and the reference product.
What doses of Byooviz are available?
Byooviz is available in single-dose 0.05 mL vials for intravitreal injections, in the following doses: 10 mg/mL.
