SALT LAKE CITY — The UnitedHealthcare Children's Foundation is seeking grant applications from families in need of financial assistance to help cover their child's health care needs.

Children needing the care must be 16 or younger, reside in the United States and have a commercial health insurance plan. Outstanding medical expenses must have been incurred 60 days prior to the date of application, as well as for ongoing future medical needs. Families must also meet economic guidelines.
