We Do More for Moms-To-Be.
Discover Superior HealthPlan.

Superior HealthPlan has a program for CHIP Perinatal Care that is part of Texas’ Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). These benefits are designed to provide prenatal services to unborn children of pregnant low-income women, who do not qualify for Medicaid. Unlike CHIP, there is no 90-day waiting period before coverage can begin and no CHIP asset test before enrollment. Also unlike CHIP, members in this program do not have any cost-sharing responsibilities (no co-payments or deductibles).

Superior also offers CHIP Perinatal Newborn coverage. With CHIP Perinatal Newborn, your baby’s coverage is for twelve months. The coverage begins when you enroll the unborn baby when you are pregnant. After the twelve months of coverage ends, you can apply through the state CHIP office to have your baby covered under the CHIP program.

Superior offers CHIP Perinatal Care in the following areas:

  • Bexar
  • El Paso
  • Hidalgo
  • Lubbock
  • Nueces
  • Travis

CHIP Perinate benefits include:

  • Prenatal visits.
  • Prescriptions and prenatal vitamins.
  • Labor and delivery care.
  • Post-delivery checkups.
  • Regular checkups, immunizations, prescriptions and other CHIP health-care benefits for the baby after leaving the hospital.

More information can be found in the CHIP handbook.
