What are the grants?
UHCCF grants provide financial help/assistance for families with children that have medical needs not covered or not fully covered by their commercial health insurance plan. The Foundation aims to fill the gap between what medical services/items a child needs and what their commercial health benefit plan will pay for. UHCCF applicants do not need to be a UHC member in order to apply for this grant.
What is the criteria to apply for a grant?

How does the grant work?
If a grant is approved by the Regional Board of Directors for a child, the grant will help pay for approved medical services/items after the family’s commercial health insurance plan submits payment, if any. Grant funds are not paid to the family or the child outright. Grant families must work with the Foundation on submitting invoices/bills for approved medical services/items after their commercial health insurance plan submits initial payment (if any) to the health care provider (see graphic below).
