Am I eligible for the Yutiq patient assistance program?
You could receive your Yutiq without paying the full retail price if you meet the eligibility criteria for assistance. The eligibility requirements are set by the pharmaceutical companies that are providing assistance programs. At NiceRx, we review each application individually, although the main 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 Yutiq patient assistance?
We do everything that we can to take the hassle and stress out of applying for patient assistance programs. Simply start by filling in our enrollment application. We will ask for details about your healthcare provider, your insurance, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical companies you are applying to for assistance. We may also be able to help you access patient assistance for other medications that you have been prescribed, so be sure to tell us about any medications you are taking as well as Yutiq.
NiceRx will review the information you have provided, and if we determine that you may be eligible for assistance, we will seek to enroll you in the Yutiq patient assistance program. We will handle the enrollment process for you by working with your healthcare provider and preparing all the required paperwork for your doctor to sign. We will also request your Yutiq medication refills on your behalf for up to 1 year once you are enrolled in the program.

At NiceRx, we help eligible individuals access the Yutiq patient assistance program. This means that we are not a Yutiq coupon, a Yutiq discount card, or a Yutiq copay card provider. We do not offer any medication trial offers, or free Yutiq samples.
Can NiceRx help me get Yutiq cheaper if I have insurance?
We may be able to help you if you have insurance, including if your insurance company will not pay for your Yutiq medication, or you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility. We may even be able to assist if you do not have insurance. Please fill in our enrollment application to find out more.

What is Yutiq?
Yutiq is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by EyePoint Pharmaceuticals, Inc. It contains a corticosteroid and is indicated for the treatment of chronic non-infectious posterior uveitis affecting the posterior segment of the eye.
Fluocinolone ophthalmic implant is a steroid medicine also used to treat diabetic macular edema, a build-up of fluid in the retina that is caused by leaking blood vessels.
What doses of Yutiq are available?
Yutiq is available as a non-bioerodible intravitreal implant, containing 0.18 mg fluocinolone acetonide in a drug delivery system.
Yutiq is preloaded into a single-dose applicator to facilitate injection of the implant directly into the vitreous. The intravitreal injection procedure should be carried out under aseptic conditions. Following the intravitreal injection, patients should be monitored for elevation in intraocular pressure (IOP) and for endophthalmitis.
Please see the full prescribing information and always speak with your healthcare provider about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
