Parent Resources: UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation
Monthly I am going to try and find resources for Parents of medically fragile children. I will share links to these resources and hopefully they will help you and your family.
UnitedHealthcare has a children foundation that provides medical grants to medically fragile children and their parents for services such as speech therapy, wheel chairs, hearing aids and physical therapy. The great thing is they do not need to be your insurance carrier.
The UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation (UHCCF) is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that provides medical grants to help children gain access to health-related services not covered, or not fully covered, by their parents’ commercial health insurance plan.
Families can receive up to $5,000 annually per child ($10,000 lifetime maximum per child), and do not need to have insurance through UnitedHealthcare to be eligible.
UHCCF was founded in 1999. Since 2007, UHCCF has awarded more than 8,500 grants valued at over $26M to children and their families across the United States. UHCCF’s funding is provided by contributions from individuals, corporations and UnitedHealth Group employees.
