7.5 I live outside the continental Unites States. Do I need to go to the WTC Health Program to have my condition certified for treatment? (Added: February 1, 2018)
Answer

No. As a foreign resident, living outside the U.S., you are able to have your conditions verified through our Private Physician process. You should complete the Private Physician forms either as part of your online claim submission or by using the forms on our website. The VCF will work directly with the WTC Health Program to verify your condition(s) as eligible for compensation.

If you have questions about your particular situation, please contact the Helpline 1-855-885-1555.
