(KSL News) Medicaid will help with the bills of a Utah County boy badly injured in an explosion.
The family of 11-year-old Bridger Hunt says he has been approved for the program since his hospitalization last month following an accident involving a neighbor's homemade explosive device.
Medicaid will cover part but not all of the expenses associated with his recovery. Hunt's mother tells The Salt Lake Tribune the family still will have to pay out of pocket for expenses such as wheelchairs and physical therapy.
The family has held multiple fundraisers and has an account set up in Bridger's name to cover those costs. You can donate at any Zions Bank branch in the name of Bridger Nathaniel Hunt.
