3.1 Is the WTC Health Program part of the VCF? (Added: March 22, 2017)

No, the WTC Health Program and the VCF are different programs. The WTC Health Program provides medical monitoring and treatment for physical injuries and conditions resulting from 9/11 exposure. The VCF provides compensation for losses resulting from physical injuries and conditions related to 9/11 exposure. You must register for each of these programs separately. Enrollment in the Health program does not automatically register you with the VCF and if you are being treated by, or monitored through, the WTC Health Program, you are not automatically eligible for compensation from the VCF. For more information on the WTC Health Program, please visit their website.
