Arthritis Foundation Advocacy Results

Our Advocacy Results

Through the Arthritis Foundation's effective, committed advocacy network of Advocates and Ambassadors - now more than 149,000 members strong - we've worked to address key issues on the state and federal levels to make real changes that improve lives.

Together, we’ve actively engaged in 137 bills in 32 states, and have positively impacted the lives of at least 27 million people in 16 states, ensuring affordability, protecting the patient-provider relationship and creating transparency in state insurance plans.
