With a diagnosis of COVID-19, the government is offering $25,000 in grants to parents to help their children with their medical bills, even if it’s not their first time.
The government is using the money to cover medical bills of up to $10,000 for a child up to the age of 18.
If the family can’t afford it, the money is supposed to cover the costs of medical insurance.
However, the new rules require the government to report the financial information to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) for potential enforcement.
The government says the funds are meant to help parents with their bills.
It’s one of several ways the government hopes to provide assistance to the millions of people who need help.
There are also new requirements for how the money can be used.
“We’ve seen a lot of parents who don’t have the means to get a prescription for the medication they need, or a medical test,” said Julie Henshaw, a spokeswoman for the HHS Health and Human Services Office of Patient Assistance and Support.
The government’s goal is to help all families get back on their feet.
According to the HHS Office of Child Care Assistance, the number of children ages 6 to 19 in the United States has increased by 25 percent over the past two years.
A recent analysis of the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey found that one in three children ages 5 to 14 is now enrolled in preschool or elementary school.
Experts say that’s a critical time for parents.
“Parents who are having a hard time getting on their child’s track can use these funds to help with childcare costs and to help them find a new school,” said Dr. Jennifer L. Hahn, a professor of pediatric practice at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and an expert in the field of early childhood development.
“That way they’re not only getting the care they need to support their child, but also to provide a stable environment for their child,” she said.
The funds are being offered to eligible families in the 48 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
This new program will be open to any family who meets the requirements.
The program also provides the same assistance to people with disabilities, but not all children with disabilities qualify.
