Transitioning Youth

Superior wants to make sure that if you’re aging out of foster care you can still get great healthcare. That’s why STAR Health members can still get the same benefits and services from Superior after turning 18. These services will continue until you are 21. Plus, you’ll be able to participate in the adolescent 2 Adult (a2A) program, which offers rewards dollars for completing health checkups.

One of the main differences you should know about is that you will be your own Medical Consenter. That means Superior will work with you to meet your healthcare needs instead of contacting a Caregiver or Caseworker.

If you have any questions about aging out of foster care, call STAR Health Member Services at 1-866-912-6283. Superior is here to help you get well and stay well.

Eligibility

All you have to do to stay a STAR Health member is update your address by calling 2-1-1 or by visiting www.YourTexasBenefits.com. As long as you still live in Texas, you can continue to be a member of STAR Health.
