This wonderful event is focused on raising money for children in need with a financial medical grant from UHCCF. Please consider attending the event, and/or making a donation (which is eligible for UHG company match).
UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation (UHCCF) offers timely financial support to families, so they can focus on what is most important – improving the quality of life of their child. UHCCF grants help with medical expenses not covered, or not fully covered, by their commercial health insurance. Families are not required to have UnitedHealthcare insurance to apply (over 75% of grant recipients do not), but must have any commercial health insurance as primary coverage. Often families simply need assistance to bridge a financial gap. The maximum grant award is $5,000 per child (16 or younger) with a lifetime maximum per child of $10,000.
UHCCF’s funding is provided by contributions from individuals, corporations and UnitedHealth Group employees. Every year UHCCF hosts fundraising events nationwide. Funds donated or raised in each region provide medical grants to children in that region. Please visit https://www.uhccf.org/apply-for-a-grant/is-my-child-eligible/ for more information. UHCCF has awarded more than 18,000 grants valued at over $45M to children and their families across the USA.
