New WTC survivor enrollees in the Program are called screening-eligible survivors.
The Program offers a one-time, initial health evaluation to all screening-eligible survivors.
Only one screening evaluation can be paid for by the Program. The purpose of the initial health evaluation is to find out if you have a condition(s) related to your 9/11 exposures that is covered under the Program. Only WTC Health Program physicians may conduct an initial health evaluation. The initial health evaluation consists of the following:
• Blood tests
• Breathing test
• Chest x-ray
• Questionnaires to evaluate your 9/11 exposures, health complaints, medical history, and mental health
• Screening colonoscopy for members aged 50 and over
• Screening mammogram for female members aged 40 and over
