Texas Health Steps

Texas Health Steps is the Medicaid health-care program for children, teens and young adults, birth through age 20. Members enrolled in STAR, STAR+PLUS, STAR Kids, STAR Health and Medicaid RSA are eligible for this program.

Texas Health Steps gives your child:

  • Free regular medical checkups starting at birth.
  • Free dental checkups starting at 6 months of age.
  • A Case Manager who can find out what services your child needs and where to get these services.

Regular checkups help make sure your child grows up healthy. You should take them to their doctor or another Superior Texas Health Steps provider for medical checkups. Your child should also get regular dental checkups to make sure his or her teeth and gums are healthy. Read more about this program on the Texas Health Steps website, in the Member handbooks, or call Texas Health Steps at 1-877-847-8377.
