Arthritis is characterized by inflammation and chronic joint pain. Arthritis can usually be further diagnosed with one of the following medical conditions; osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile arthritis, psoriatic arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis. These are only a few of over a hundred different types of arthritis.
Having arthritis will cost you hundreds or thousands of dollars annually in extra health care expenses, above and beyond those covered by the Canadian health care system. The Canadian Government recognizes this and as a result provides financial assistance in the form of the Disability Tax Credit (DTC) and other related disability benefits.
Many people who get approved for the disability tax credit (DTC) and other related benefits receive anywhere from $1,600 to $35,000.
