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 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.

At Superior, members can get many great services in addition to their regular benefits. These are called value-added services. From extra vision care to cell phones and car seats, Superior is proud to offer many extra services to help keep our members healthy.

  • Expanded vision benefits providing prescription glasses or $100 toward the cost of any features or frames not covered by Medicaid.
  • $30 every three months for over-the-counter medications through a mail order program. Over-the-Counter Mail Order Program
  • Small cash grants, called Care Grants, which may be used for items like art supplies, clothing or other personal items.
  • CentAccount®, a program offering rewards dollars for members who complete wellness visits, dental checkups and other health screenings for members ages 18 through 21 years old.
  • Boys and Girls Club of America membership for children ages 6 through 18 years old.
