9-11 RESPONDERS CHARGED AT NY PRESBYTERIAN......


RECD FROM 9-11 HEALTH WATCH.

If you are a 9/11 responder or survivor enrolled in the World Trade Center Health Program who received care from NY Presbyterian Hospital for a 9/11 certified condition and you had to pay for services out of pocket, you might be able to be reimbursed.

All the major hospitals in the New York Metropolitan area have been allowing easy access to their facilities for injured and ill 9/11 responders and survivors under the World Trade Center Health Program, all-except for New York Presbyterian.

Because of their refusal, it was harder to obtain care from NY Presbyterian and there were many times NY Presbyterian charged co-pays to World Trade Center Health Program members that should not have been charged.

This had been going on for years, until March 2021, when Members of Congress; Carolyn Maloney; (D-NY) Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) and Andrew Garbarino (R-NY), wrote to Steve Corwin, the President of New York Presbyterian. Their letter can be viewed here .

President Corwin responded by denying that there was any problem.

“To our knowledge, no patient has ever been turned away or had difficulties accessing our services.”

Finally, almost a year after his denial and after several articles and editorials in the New York Daily News, New York Presbyterian finally admitted that members of the World Trade Center Health Program had difficulty getting services from the Hospital. They have finally agreed to sign a Master Agreement with the World Trade Center Health Program that would allow for easy access for WTC Health Program Members in the future.

You can read all about it on our website here.

That’s not all.

Not only did they agree to sign a Master Agreement, but they also announced that they would reimburse WTC Health Program members who had been improperly charged copays when getting services at New York Presbyterian.

So, if you were a World Trade Center Health Program member treated at New York Presbyterian, and were charged for services, you should call (866) 833-6437 and ask to be reimbursed.

If you call NY Presbyterian and feel they are not being responsive to you or if you still have questions, please contact 911 Health Watch here.

September 11, 2001 - a day we will never forget, events we will never forget, heroes we will never forget. God bless all who perished, all who died from WTC-related illnesses, all who were injured, all who risked their lives to save others that day, all who participated in recovery efforts, all who supported WTC and Pentagon operations, all family members and all who protected their own cities and communities during a time of great fear and risk.

I don't know if this has been mentioned before but in Campbell County, Kentucky, all ladder trucks are given a number ending with 10 (110, 210, 310, etc.), except for Newport which is the 900 department, their ladder truck is 911. Also in the same county when Bellevue and Dayton combined fire departments, they named their department FDBD in honor of FDNY.

Last year, DC Engine 21 honored our site member "Johnny Gage" as well as all who were lost on Sept 11, with a special ceremony at their historic quarters. A flag was flown over quarters and then later presented to him with a picture of the ceremony. Dan was a member of DC Engine 21, an elite DC engine company, before his stellar FDNY career. He also made a scaling ladder rescue serving with DC Engine 21. Dan and his wife, Jean, are both heroes of the September 11, 2001 WTC attack. Never forget 9/11.

THE HENRY FAMILY......
I remember driving Ed the Father when he covered in 108 as a CPT around the time his Son Joe was born in 1976...today May 24 is the Son Joe's Birthday in Heaven.....NEVER FORGET ! ....................................................................................................................................................................................................

FROM ANOTHER SITE.

In Memoriam Sept 11
·
Happy heavenly birthday FDNY firefighter Joseph Henry of Ladder 21. He was born on May 24, 1976, and would have been 47 years old today. We will never forget the ultimate sacrifice that he made on September 11, 2001.
Ed Henry’s last conversation with his 25-year-old son, Joey, was a typical exchange between a doting parent and his adult child.
“He said, ‘Dad, could you lend me $20?’ ” recalls Ed, a retired FDNY battalion chief from Bensonhurst, who needled good-naturedly, “Whenever I lend you money, Joey, I never see it again!”
“Don’t worry, Dad, you’ll get it back,” quipped the jolly probie, known for his elbow-tickling humor, before pocketing the cash with a grin and dashing out of the door to make his 24-hour shift at Ladder Company 21 in Manhattan.
As Ed saw his son disappear into the street, he yelled out a phrase that was a standing joke in their close-knit family, which boasted three generations of firefighters: “See you at the big one!”
“We don’t go to any big ones!” hollered back Joey who, like most new smokeeaters, relished the prospect of someday swashbuckling with “the big one.”
Their brief chat on that breezy afternoon on Sept. 10, 2001 is seared in Ed’s mind like a deep scar engraved with the chilling memories of the next day when most of the Henry clan — including Joey’s brothers Michael and Eddie, both of them firemen, and Danny, a Port Authority cop — rushed to tame “the big one” as terrorists exploded plane after hijacked plane into the World Trade Center.
The calamity ripped through their lives like a tornado.
Ed — trapped for hours beneath colossal chunks of rubble from the crumbling towers — and his son, Michael, were forced to retire because of their 9-11 injuries. Eddie, Jr. followed suit a few years later after breaking his neck battling a vicious blaze in Brooklyn.
Their kid brother, Joey, who had finally realized his wish to tackle “the big one” after less than a year on the force, was less fortunate: he perished on 9-11 alongside his entire unit of seven men, all of whose remains were never found.
The last 10 years have been arduous and anguish-filled for the heartbroken family, which has coped with its devastating loss by keeping Joey’s memory alive — at home and in the community.
His 11 nephews and nieces — most of them born after the disaster — have been schooled in the antics and heroics of strapping, friendly, engaging, hilarious, lovable “Uncle Joey,” a certified Emergency Medical Technician who was to have returned to college on the week of the attacks.
Nor has he been forgotten.
Memorials to Joey abound in front of his building and at his alma mater, Lafayette High School, where the dyed-in-the-wool Yankees’ fan was on the baseball team. He is also honored on the Brooklyn Wall of Remembrance in Coney Island, and there is a street sign immortalizing him at the corner of his block — Bay 44th Street and Shore Parkway — which remains a source of comfort for his mom, Alice, who walks by “Firefighter Joseph Patrick Henry Lane” most days, and routinely refreshes it with wreaths, bows and flowers.
She also makes sure that Joey stays close to her by wearing a locket with a photograph of him in his work uniform, while her husband wears a St. Florian medal — he’s the patron saint of firefighters — in honor of his son.
The couple’s two daughters have coped with the catastrophe by pursuing pro-active careers: Kathleen, who was a teen on 9-11, is a guidance counselor at PS 249 near Prospect Park, and Mary teaches autistic children at the Bay Academy.
Yet, nothing has eased the pain of losing Joey, says Alice, who received an urn of dirt from Ground Zero — a place she calls “a cemetery” — as a pitiful keepsake of the family’s shattering bereavement.
“You don’t have to remind me where he is,” she declares.
The retired school secretary, who last saw her son on the Sunday before 9-11 for what would tragically be his last family dinner, is practical about her grief.
“You have to live with it, it’s not easy … living with it,” she says, her voice petering off. “I know that right now Joey is in a better place, but it took me a long time to realize that.”
Brooklyn Daily, 2001
