About STAR

STAR is a Texas Medicaid managed care program. Most people who have Medicaid in Texas get their coverage through the STAR program. STAR covers low-income children, pregnant women, and families. You pick a medical plan that provides your Medicaid services and a main doctor that is your point of contact for Medicaid services. In addition to your main doctor, each plan has a large group of specialists, therapists, clinics, and hospitals that can give you Medicaid services.
