Oliver® the bear, Hope® the butterfly and all their friends have unforgettable times in the award-winning Oliver & Hope storybook series. They invite children to join their adventures within the pages of the books, by playing with the collection of Oliver & Hope plush animals, and by engaging in the free activities here in the Clubhouse.
The friendships found in the Oliver & Hope stories reflect what UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation (UHCCF) represents: Integrity, Compassion, Relationships, Innovation and Performance. In addition, all these playful characters introduce children to the importance of imagination, creativity and enthusiasm when facing any challenge. In their own unique way, each character represents various aspects of the Foundation's charitable mission.
UHCCF provides charitable services and embraces and supports the concept of facilitating access to health-related services that have the potential to significantly enhance either the clinical condition or the quality of life of the child and that are not fully covered by the available commercial health insurance plan. The Foundation provides financial assistance toward the family's share of the cost of medical services.
Join them on their adventures.
