Superior HealthPlan (Superior) is a managed health care company that provides health care for many Texans. Superior works with the State of Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) to bring you STAR (Medicaid), Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), CHIP Perinatal Care, and STAR+PLUS in many cities and counties across Texas. Our sister company, Superior HealthPlan Network, manages the STAR Health program on a statewide basis. Below is information on the programs offered by Superior HealthPlan in partnership with the State of Texas.
