|UnitedHealthcare Children's Foundation to Offer Medical
The UnitedHealthcare Children's Foundation ( http://www.uhccf.org/ ) is offering support to meet the needs of children across the United States with assistance grants for medical services not fully covered by health insurance.
Parents and caretakers across the country will be eligible to apply for grants of up to $5,000 for healthcare services that will help improve their children's health and quality of life.
Examples of the types of medical services covered by UHCCF grants include speech therapy, physical therapy, and psycho- therapy sessions; medical equipment such as wheelchairs, braces, hearing aids, and eyeglasses; and orthodontia and dental treatments.
Any child 16 years old or younger living in any UnitedHealth- care region of the United States and in need of financial assistance for healthcare services will be considered eligible for a grant. Families must meet economic guidelines, reside in the United States, and be covered by a commercial health insurance plan.
