The WTCHP provides medical monitoring and treatment for emergency Responders, recovery, and cleanup workers, and volunteers who helped after the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and the Shanksville, Pennsylvania crash site.

The WTCHP also provides health evaluations and treatment for Survivors, i.e. those who were present in the dust cloud on 9/11 or who worked, resided, or attended school, childcare, or adult daycare in the New York City disaster area for a period of time on 9/11 and/or during the following months.

In addition to providing medical monitoring and treatment the WTCHP also provides:

  • Education and outreach;
  • Collection and analysis of physical and mental  health data with members' permission ; and
  • Research to better understand health conditions related to the attacks.

The level of care provided by the World Trade Center Health Program (“WTCHP”) depends on whether you are classified as a Responder (you worked or volunteered in the response, recovery, or cleanup) or Survivor (you survived attacks on 9/11, worked, resided in, visited, or attended school or daycare in the Exposure Area).

Responders who enroll in the WTCHP receive annual medical monitoring regardless of whether or not they are currently diagnosed with any 9/11-related conditions. If you have any health conditions certified as a 9/11-related as defined by the Zadroga Act (i.e., an illness or health condition for which exposure to airborne toxins, other hazards, or other adverse conditions resulting from the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks was substantially likely to be a significant factor in aggravating, contributing to, or causing the illness or health condition) , the WTCHP healthcare providers will provide medical treatment and medication for the 9/11-related health condition.

Survivors who enroll in the WTCHP will receive an initial health evaluation to determine if you have a health condition eligible for coverage. If you have a health condition that is considered 9/11-related, your physician will request that the WTCHP certify your condition as eligible for treatment. If the WTCHP agrees with your physician and determines you have a health condition that is certified as a 9/11-related health condition as defined by the Zadroga Act (i.e., an illness or health condition for which exposure to airborne toxins, other hazards, or other adverse conditions resulting from the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks was substantially likely to be a significant factor in aggravating, contributing to, or causing the illness or health condition) , then the WTCHP healthcare providers will provide medical treatment and medication for the 9/11-related health condition.
