Private insurer giving away health grants

UnitedHealthcare Children's Foundation (UHCCF) is accepting grant applications from Colorado families in need of financial assistance to pay for children's health care treatments, services or equipment not covered by their health insurance plans.

Families may receive up to $5,000.

"The UnitedHealthcare Children's Foundation is dedicated to facilitating greater access to medical-related services that can help improve children's health and quality of life," said UHCCF President Matt Peterson. "We recognize some families experience gaps in coverage for certain medical treatments and equipment, and we are committed to helping fill this void. Since expanding our grant program nationwide in 2007, we have provided more than 1,500 grants to families in need of financial assistance."

Last year, more than 450 families received grants for treatments for speech and developmental delays, hearing loss, autism, diabetes, cystic fibrosis, Down syndrome and cerebral palsy.
