United Medical Partnership for Children – Healthcare for Baldwin County Kids
Children with no insurance are less likely to receive proper medical care which often results in excessive absences from school. The United Way of Baldwin County's unique program, The United Medical Partnership for Children, enables uninsured and underinsured children to receive proper medical treatment. By keeping children healthy, we keep children in the classroom and on a pathway towards success.
To identify children who need care, United Way partners with the Baldwin County Board of Education and its network of school nurses. The fund pays for basic medical needs for public school children. Unfortunately, United Way’s resources do not cover catastrophic illnesses.
To receive UMPC assistance, a child must be underinsured or uninsured. School nurses provide screening, notify the parents and refer children to local healthcare providers who bill United Way of Baldwin County. UWBC receives no payment for administering the fund.
