United Healthcare Free Child Health Insurance Help

United Healthcare wants to score some points in Utah.

Families meeting income guidelines with children 16 or younger can apply to receive extra health insurance assistance through United Healthcare Children’s Foundation (UHCCF). The family also must already have a health insurance plan to apply. So if your family doesn’t have health insurance, you’re not eligible.

Kids that qualify for the extra health insurance money can receive up to $5,000 to help pay for medical services and equipment such as physical, occupational and speech therapy, counseling services, surgeries, prescriptions, wheelchairs, eyeglasses and hearing aids. Grants are available for medical expenses families have incurred 60 days before the date of application as well as for ongoing and future medical needs.

To apply in your child’s name, click here. You can also make a tax-deductible donation at the same website.  Here is a cool baby gear site.

UHCCF awarded just under 800 grants in 2010 to families across the United States for treatments associated with conditions such as speech and developmental delays, hearing loss, autism, cystic fibrosis, Down syndrome, ADHD, ADD and cerebral palsy.
