Your monthly Ilumya cost savings if eligible

If you are eligible for the Ilumya patient assistance program, the cost of your medication will be free. We only charge $49 per month for each medication, to cover our service fees. You could receive your Ilumya prescription for just $49 a month, regardless of the retail price of your medication.

Am I eligible for the Ilumya patient assistance program?

We will review your application to determine whether you are eligible for the Ilumya patient assistance program. Each program has its own eligibility criteria which are set by the pharmaceutical companies, however, the factors considered by most programs 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 Ilumya patient assistance program?

We make it as easy as possible to apply for the Ilumya patient assistance program. The first step is to complete our enrollment application. Tell us about any medications you are taking, including Ilumya. We will also ask for details about your healthcare provider, insurance, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers who ship your medication.

If we determine that you may be eligible for Ilumya assistance, we will handle the application process for you. We will work directly with your healthcare provider to prepare your application documents. Once we have received the signed application and supporting documents, we will submit them to the patient assistance program on your behalf. Our service continues once you are enrolled in the Ilumya patient assistance program, and we will automatically request your Ilumya medication refills for up to 1 year.

Is NiceRx an Ilumya coupons provider?

We are a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Ilumya patient assistance program. That means that we do not offer printable Ilumya manufacturer coupons, Ilumya discounts, or free Ilumya samples. We are not an Ilumya coupon provider or an Ilumya discount card. Our service extends to assisting eligible individuals to access the medications they need through patient assistance programs.

Can NiceRx help me get Ilumya if I have insurance?

We may be able to help you to access Ilumya patient assistance in a variety of circumstances. This includes when your insurance company will not pay for your Ilumya medication or if you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility. We may also be able to help you if you do not have insurance. Please apply online to find out more.

What is Ilumya?

Ilumya is an FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Sun Pharma Global FZE.

Lumiya is a biologic interleukin-23 antagonist for the treatment of adults with moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis who have tried topical treatments for systemic therapy or phototherapy but found that these therapies didn’t control their psoriasis symptoms.

Ilumya is also being tested as a treatment for psoriatic arthritis.

What doses of Ilumya are available?

Ilumya is available in injection form: 100 mg/mL solution in a single-dose prefilled syringe.

The injection is given as a subcutaneous injection under the skin. The recommended dose is 100 mg at Weeks 0, 4, and every twelve weeks thereafter. The injection is given into the thighs, stomach area, or upper arm.

Before treatment is started with Ilumya, you may be tested to make sure you do not have tuberculosis or any other infections.

Tildrakizumab is a humanized IgG1/k monoclonal antibody that binds to the p19 subunit of IL-23, blocking its interaction with the IL-23 receptor. IL-23 is a cytokine that is involved in inflammatory and immune responses in the body. Tildrakizumab prevents the release of proinflammatory cytokines and chemokines.

  • Upper respiratory infections
  • Injection site reactions
