STAR Health Foster Care Plan

Embracing Every Child: STAR Health

We Do More for STAR Health Members in Texas.
Discover Superior HealthPlan.

Superior HealthPlan proudly offers STAR Health, a Medicaid managed care program serving children and youth in foster care. Superior is the only health program to include STAR Health coverage for children and youth in foster care in all 254 counties in Texas.

When children are housed within the foster care system, they are often not eligible for a traditional Medicaid plan. This is where STAR Health comes in.

Superior works very closely with the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) to make sure children in foster care in the state of Texas get the medical services they need. These STAR Health services may include:

  • Primary and specialty physician care services.
  • Prescription drugs and medical supplies.
  • Medical checkups, including Texas Health Steps.
  • Behavioral health services.
  • Hospital care.
  • Vision services.
  • Family planning services.
  • Dental services.

Superior has also established Foster Care Centers of Excellence across Texas. These clinics provide many of the services listed above to STAR Health members.
