Your Benefits

Planning well to live well.

At JPS Health Network, our employees are our most valuable asset and we are committed to supporting your wellness and quality of life. The JPS benefits plan is designed to meet the diverse needs of our team members and their families.


JPS benefits are available to full- and part-time employees. Full-time employees work 36-40 hours per week and part-time employees work a minimum of 20 hours per week and less than 36 hours per week.

Your eligible dependents include:

  • Your legally married spouse
  • Your dependent children from birth to age 26

Dependent coverage takes effect on the same date your coverage begins. You must provide evidence your dependents meet the eligibility requirements, such as birth certificates, adoptions or guardianship papers, a marriage license or a federal income tax return.
