Grants available for families in need

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.

Thanks to the generous contributions of many donors, UHCCF has been able to touch the lives of thousands of children and their families through much needed medical grants. These medical grants help improve access to medical services and items that are not covered, or not fully covered, by a family's current commercial health benefit plan.

Since being founded in 1999, UHCCF has granted over 15 million dollars to more than 5,000 families across the country. Grants have helped pay for necessary medical services and medical equipment such as physical therapy, surgery, chemotherapy, and medical equipment such as orthotics, wheelchairs and hearing aids for children.
