Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.
A medical condition qualifies for FMLA if it requires continuing treatment by a health care provider that results in an incapacity lasting more than three consecutive calendar days with either two or more in-person visits to the health care provider within 30 days of the date of incapacity OR one in-person visit to the health care provider with a regimen of continuing treatment, such as prescription medication, physical therapy, etc.
In other words, if your arthritis requires you to see a doctor and to follow a treatment regimen of some kind (i.e. prescription drugs, physical therapy, etc.) it should qualify for FMLA leave.
In order to formalize your FMLA leave request, you will want to fill out this form.
