    The WTC Health Program NPN provides care for WTC responders and WTC survivors who live outside of the NY metropolitan area. The Program was specifically set up this way so that it would be convenient for you to access care near your place of work or residence. It also permits continuity of care in the event that you move and need to locate medical providers close to your new residence. If you live in an urban area, the NPN will try to find you care within 30 miles or less of your residence. If you live in a rural area, the NPN will try to find you care within 70 miles or less of your residence. If you would like to learn more about the location of local providers available to you through the NPN, feel free to contact the NPN toll- free at 1-877-498-2911.
