The UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation wants to help U.S. children who have commercial health insurance but need services not covered by the insurance.

The foundation, an affiliation of UnitedHealth Group Inc., Minnetonka, Minn., already has been operating on a limited basis and has awarded about $1 million in grants to 375 families, executives say.

The foundation awards grants of up to $5,000 each for services such as psychotherapy sessions, wheelchairs, braces and hearings aids that might not be fully covered by commercial health insurance, foundation executives say.

Eligible patients must be 16 years old or younger.

Eligible families must have an annual household income of less than $20,000 per family member, according to the foundation’s Web site.
