It is very important that your child gets his or her vision checked at least once a year. A vision provider can find a problem early and correct it. STAR Health vision benefits include:
- Routine eye exams
- Contact lenses (if medically necessary)
Vision services are part of the Texas Health Steps program. The Texas Health Steps program provides regular medical, dental and vision checkups. Every child must have their Texas Health Steps exams when they are due. Please check your member handbook for more information. You can also call Superior at 1-866-912-6283 for information or help in scheduling these appointments.
Making a vision appointment
Superior has many vision providers to choose from across the state. Your child does not need a referral from his or her PCP to see an eye doctor. All you have to do is call 1-866-642-8959 for help finding an eye doctor that is right for you or your child.
Note: All members are allowed to select an in-network ophthalmologist or therapeutic optometrist to provide eye health care services without a referral from a PCP. This does not include surgery.
