Living with arthritis can pose a number of challenges, including finding affordable treatment options. While visits to a medical doctor are generally covered by government healthcare plans, other treatment options often have a cost associated with them. Extended health benefits may offer some cost coverage, but if you do not have extended health benefits, some treatment options may be more difficult or too expensive to access. 

Always check with your healthcare team before trying any treatment options you have not already discussed. Not everyone with arthritis will have the same experience, and not every treatment option will be appropriate for you and your needs.

While not an exhaustive list, this resource is meant to help you find low or no cost extended health and complementary treatment options near you.
