This memorandum responds to your request for information about the New York State Disaster Relief Medicaid (DRM) program established after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and how it differs from the World Trade Center Medical Monitoring and Treatment Program (MMTP) administered by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). As you requested, this memorandum also provides an update of the status of the DRM program, including the resolution of New York State’s appeal to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for reimbursement of the state’s share of Medicaid costs, as described in CRS Report RL33083, Hurricane Katrina: Medicaid Issues, by Evelyne P. Baumrucker et al. (p. 17).
