UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation is Seeking Child Medical Grant Applications from Kentucky Families

If you need financial assistance for child medical care costs, you can apply for a UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation (UHCCF) grant. You do NOT need to have UnitedHealthcare Insurance to be eligible
