Low Cost Medical Care
As Tarrant County’s community health network, JPS Health Network wants to make sure that all residents of our county have a medical home to keep them healthy. We understand that sometimes life throws curve balls. Many people experience a time in their life when the cost of medical care seems overwhelming.
That’s why JPS provides a number of different assistance programs, including some for people who have insurance but find they are unable to afford their out-of-pocket expenses, such as deductibles and coinsurance. By enrolling in the JPS Connection program, you and your family can see JPS doctors for regular check-ups, specialists for your specific health concerns and even get your prescriptions filled at low cost.
As of October 2013, the federal Affordable Care Act provides health insurance for many people who could not afford it before. But the Affordable Care Act, often called Obamacare, does not cover everyone and many of the new insurance plans have high deductibles and coinsurance costs. If you are eligible to sign up for insurance under the Affordable Care Act (www.HealthCare.gov and www.CuidadoDeSalud.gov,) you should do so. If you are eligible to sign up for insurance, you must do so in order to be eligible for JPS Connection. Once you're signed up, JPS Connection can help with your out-of-pocket expenses, if you qualify and if your care is provided at a JPS facility.
