3.3 I scheduled my appointment with the WTC Health Program but they told me it may take several months to be seen and to then receive a certification letter.

Question
3.3 I scheduled my appointment with the WTC Health Program but they told me it may take several months to be seen and to then receive a certification letter. Should I submit my claim even though I have not yet been certified? (Updated: November 14, 2017)
Answer

It is best to wait to submit your claim until you have been certified by the WTC Health Program. If you submit your claim without first being certified, the VCF will place your claim in Inactive status and it will remain in that status and will not be reviewed until you submit your certification letter.
