In this public service announcement campaign we are encouraging parents and legal guardians to apply for grants of up to $5,000 for child medical services and equipment by completing an online application at www.uhccf.org. To be eligible for grants, children must be 16 years of age or younger. Families must meet economic guidelines, reside in the United States and have a commercial health insurance plan.
