It goes without saying that firefighting is a dangerous occupation. Besides burns, firefighters are at risk of smoke inhalation, heat exhaustion, fractures and sprains. They also have a higher risk of cancer, heart disease, rhabdo (the breakdown of muscle tissue), hearing loss and PTSD


The year 2018 saw more than 27,000 fires in the city.  Each of its 8,400+ firefighters risks his or her life several times a year. Because of the risk, firefighters must have a medical exam after each fire to make sure they’re in good health. Any injuries or illnesses also trigger a fitness for duty exam. 


For many health plans, copays for exams could add up quickly. But with MetroPlusHealth Gold, your copays would be $0. MetroPlusHealth Gold is a true no-cost plan that also offers $0 premiums, deductibles and coinsurance. We are over 700,000 members strong. And like you, we’re New Yorkers serving New Yorkers. Check us out.
