Texas-Based Superior HealthPlan Releases 2021 Community Investment Report | Texas News

AUSTIN, TX, January 24, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Superior HealthPlan has released its annual Community Investment Report, demonstrating an ongoing commitment to supporting individuals and communities through Texas. As the COVID-19 pandemic continued into 2021, Superior launched new initiatives, worked with hundreds of community partners, and expanded its programs to further support those in need.

“Many Texans have faced challenges and difficulties throughout the past year,” said Mark Sander, President and CEO of Superior HealthPlan. “Our goal was to help ease the burden as much as possible by supporting our members and their communities. We also know that the health of Texans often depends on what happens outside of a doctor’s office, so we were proud to partner again with community-based organizations and schools to support Texans where they live.”

In 2021, Superior was able to:

  • Award $200,000 in provider grants to expand virtual care to members.
  • Support over 750 community partners with nearly $720,000 in grants and sponsorships.
  • Make a donation $290,000 at Texas United Way chapters through an employee giving campaign.
  • Partner with the Pro Football Hall of Fame to promote the COVID-19 vaccine.
  • Work with providers to bring mental health education and services to dozens of schools.

Additionally, Superior has expanded its community partnerships to introduce hygiene closets to school districts across the state, providing children and their families with items such as personal protective equipment, toiletries, laundry and detergents. Superior has also helped expand telehealth services for members, address food insecurity, and fund initiatives that support people with disabilities.
