Medical Treatment Services

The Program covers a specific list of WTC-related physical and mental health conditions. If you are diagnosed with a health condition on the list and your WTC Health Program physician thinks that the health condition is related to your 9/11 exposures, then the WTC Health Program physician will request certification, or approval, of your condition(s) so that your treatment can be covered by the Program.

What conditions may be treated? Some examples are:

  • Asthma
  • Breathing and airway disorders
  • Certain cancers
  • Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)
  • Sinus disorders

Treatment services may include:

  • CT scans
  • Doctors visits and follow-up visits
  • Full pulmonary function testing
  • Medication
  • X-rays

Certification

The program will pay for treatment of your WTC-related health condition(s) if your condition(s) has been certified. Your WTC Health Program physician will request that the Administrator certify your WTC-related health condition if:

  • The health condition is included on the list of WTC-related health conditions; or
  • The health condition is medically associated with a certified health condition included on the list of WTC-related health conditions; and 
  • Your WTC Health Program physician determines that your 9/11 exposures are substantially likely to have been a significant factor in aggravating, contributing to, or causing the health condition
