WTC Health Program

The WTC Health Program provides services for survivors who were present in the dust cloud on 9/11 or who lived, worked, or went to school, childcare or adult day care in the New York City disaster area, as well as monitoring and treatment for eligible rescue, recovery, and clean-up workers who responded to the September 11th terrorist attacks.  The WTC Health Program has seven Clinical Centers of Excellence in the New York metropolitan area and a Nationwide Provider Network (NPN).

Nationwide Provider Network (NPN)

The NPN provides monitoring and treatment services for eligible 9/11 survivors who live outside the New York metropolitan area.  Logistics Health Incorporated (LHI) administers the NPN and administered similar services under the National Responder Health Program since 2008.
