Arthritis Resources


The Live Life Well Program has partnered with the Arthritis Foundation’s Arthritis@Work program!  On average, one in four State of Montana employees or retirees lives with arthritis. The pain they experience can be debilitating and make everyday tasks difficult if not impossible to do — both at home and at work.  We consistently hear from our plan members with arthritis that they need greater understanding and support from their employers to be successful.

Arthritis@Work is your solution, and we commend you for taking steps to find the resources you need to live healthfully with arthritis.  Check out our Arthritis at work page to find the following and more!

  • 45 ways to tame pain
  • Connect with those who understand the pain
  • Take a pain survey for recommendations specifically for you
