Children’s medical grants now available from UnitedHealthcare

CYPRESS — The UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation is seeking grant applications from families in need of financial assistance to help pay for their child’s healthcare treatments, services or equipment not covered, or not fully covered, by their commercial health insurance plan.

Qualifying families can receive up to $5,000 per grant to help pay for medical services and equipment such as physical, occupational and speech therapy, counseling services, surgeries, prescriptions, wheelchairs, orthotics, eyeglasses and hearing aids.

To be eligible for a grant, children must be 16 years of age or younger. Families must meet economic guidelines, reside in the United States and have a commercial health insurance plan. Grants are available for medical expenses families have incurred 60 days prior to the date of application as well as for ongoing and future medical needs. Parents or legal guardians may apply for grants at uhccf.org, and there is no application deadline. Organizations or private donors can make tax-deductible donations to UHCCF at uhccf.org. Donations are used for grants to help children and families in the region in which they are received.

“The UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation is dedicated to improving a child’s health and quality of life by making it easier to access needed medical-related services. The grants enable families to focus on their children’s health instead of worrying about how they’ll pay their medical bills,” said Brandon Cuevas, CEO of UnitedHealthcare of California. “Eligible families are encouraged to apply online for a medical grant today and take advantage of this valuable resource.”

In 2012, UHCCF awarded more than 1,300 grants, worth more than $4.1 million, to families across the United States for treatments associated with medical conditions such as cancer, spina bifida, muscular dystrophy, diabetes, hearing loss, autism, cystic fibrosis, Down syndrome, ADHD and cerebral palsy. In California, nearly 100 grants have been provided in the past two years totaling more than $270,000. As successful fundraising efforts continue to grow, UHCCF is hoping to help more children and families in 2013.

The UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation (UHCCF) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) public charity that strives to enhance either the clinical condition or quality of life of children who have health care needs not fully covered by their commercial health benefit plan. UHCCF provides medical grants of up to $5,000 for costs associated with medical services and equipment. UHCCF’s funding is provided by contributions from individuals, corporations and UnitedHealth Group employees. Donations to help provide assistance are deeply appreciated. To apply, donate or learn more, please visit uhccf.org.
