UnitedHealthcare Children's Foundation

The UnitedHealthcare Children's Foundation® (UHCCF) provides medical grants to qualified families enrolled in employer-sponsored health coverage, or who have purchased an individual policy, to help pay for child health care services such as speech, physical or occupational therapy, prescriptions, and medical equipment such as wheelchairs, orthotics and hearing aids.

Parents and legal guardians may apply for grants of up to $5,000 for child medical services and equipment by completing an online application. The website also has grant-application criteria, video clips and stories about recently helped children. To be eligible for grants, children must be 16 years of age or younger. Families must meet economic guidelines, reside in the United States and be covered by a commercial health benefit plan.
