STAR Health members can get regular checkups, exams, primary care and specialist care when needed. Superior wants to help all children in foster care get well and stay well.

STAR Health offers:

  • An Integrated Medical Home where each child has access to Primary Care Providers (PCPs), behavioral health clinicians, specialists, dentists and vision services.
  • Care Coordination services to help you understand benefits, get help with appointments, find transportation assistance and identify local community resources.
  • Training programs that provide clinical expertise and program information for families, caregivers, caseworkers and other child advocates.

Since 2008, Superior HealthPlan has supported children in foster care. This includes Foster Care Centers of Excellence (FCCOE). Established in 2017, these centers provide children in foster care with crucial services. Watch this new video to learn about the positive impact Superior has had on members in STAR Health.
