    Benefits of Being Insured

    While it’s important to think about others and give back to your community, it’s also important to take care of yourself. Your emotional, mental and physical health needs to be addressed consistently and can be the best gift you can give to those you love. To help accomplish this, being insured can make you feel secure, healthy, and happy by paying for preventive services and other medical costs.

    Voices for Utah Children

    Big wins for kids don’t just happen by accident. Voices for Utah Children works to make Utah a place where all children can thrive. They believe that every child deserves the opportunity to reach their full potential. They start with one basic question: “Is it good for kids?”. The answer to that simple question drives their efforts. With their focus on health, school readiness, safety, economic stability, and diversity Voices for Utah Children can make Utah a better place for children to thrive. Through advocacy by skilled professionals, they show policymakers - that government can and should act to keep kids safe and help them grow. Children can’t vote, hold press conferences, or donate to political campaigns in order to protect their interest. By bringing the power of a community together – legislators, business executives, and ordinary citizens –they can help identify and resolve tough problems facing Utah’s children and families. You can donate or join their network at UtahChildren.org. SelectHealth recognizes the capable influence of Voices for Utah Children as another example of how Utah Gives Back.
