HCU’s Funding Partners are distinct local health entities that are deeply committed to the vision and success of the Health Coverage Unit. Their financial support sustains the Healthy Kids program by covering the costs of providing medical, dental, vision, and mental health benefits to its members. Without this invaluable support, children who do not qualify for Medi-Cal or Healthy Families, who are mostly undocumented immigrant children, would remain uninsured.
