UnitedHealthcare Plan of Nevada Medicaid Provides Scholarship to BGCSNV Families

Local kids will benefit from needed before, after-school, and school break programs from Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada through a $140,000 grant from UnitedHealthcare Plan of Nevada Medicaid.

This is one of the largest donations the nonprofit organization has received from a health plan. UnitedHealthcare Health Plan of Nevada Medicaid covers the annual membership fees for their members to enjoy Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada’s educational, healthy lifestyle, character, and leadership programming and now is supporting more families with this extension of their collaboration.

“At UnitedHealthcare Health Plan of Nevada Medicaid, we are committed to helping people live healthier lives, including children. After-school care plays a critical role in child development, helping kids learn healthy behaviors and develop the skills they need to succeed in school and life,” said Kelly Simonson, CEO of UnitedHealthcare Health Plan of Nevada Medicaid. “We are honored to partner with Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada to provide children with safe and enriching educational and social experiences.”
