Action Brief: What Employers Need to Know About Rheumatoid Arthritis 

01-04-2018 14:20

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is the most common autoimmune inflammatory disease in the U.S., affecting about 1.3 million people, and resulting in well over $19 billion in direct (all costs related to medical visits and prescriptions to treat RA) and indirect costs (includes health care costs for family members, work-loss costs, formal and informal caregiving, home adaptations, and other costs related to the consequences of RA). Because RA most frequently appears between ages 40-60—the prime of working life—employers can play an important role in helping employees and their family members get the care and treatment they need to lead healthier, happier, more productive lives, while reducing costs for all.
