9/11 World Trade Center Health Program
The WTC Health Program was created by the Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act to provide free health care for first responders, recovery workers, and volunteers affected by the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.
The WTC Health Program replaces the Mount Sinai WTC Medical Monitoring and Treatment Program. If you were enrolled in the Mount Sinai Program, you do not have to re-enroll.
Benefits of Enrolling in the Program
The WTC Health Program provides rescue and recovery workers, including fire fighters with:
- A free annual medical monitoring exam to detect any WTC-related health conditions. All diagnostic tests and procedures are free and there are no out of pocket costs for this exam.
- Free treatment for any WTC-related health condition or cancer. The Program covers expenses for approved prescription medications, hospitalizations, and outpatient producers for treatment of a WTC-related condition.
- Nationwide Provide Network: The WTC Health Program has a network of providers throughout the U.S. so you can be seen at a location close to your home. You do not have to travel to New York to participate in the Program. If you live outside the New York City metropolitan area, the Nationwide Provide Network will help you find a location close to where you live.
