The Affordable Care Act and JPS Connection
An important notice for JPS Connection members
In 2014, JPS Health Network did not cancel JPS Connection members if they missed the deadline to sign up for the government’s new Health Insurance Marketplace. For 2015, Certified Application Counselors are available to help JPS Connection members enroll in the Marketplace.
To be eligible for JPS Connection, you must first take full advantage of all other assistance available to you. If you qualify for insurance from the Marketplace, you must sign up.
JPS Enrollment and Eligibility specialists are Certified Application Counselors and can help you with the new Health Insurance Marketplace. We can help you find out if you need to sign up. We can help you review the insurance plans.
Our counselors are available by appointment beginning November 15. Please call 817-702-1001 to schedule your appointment.
Please allow one hour for your appointment and be sure to bring the following information with you:
- Valid email address with the password
- W-2 or other proof of income for every member of your household who needs coverage
- Social security number (or document numbers for legal immigrants)
You can read more about the new Marketplace at www.HealthCare.gov (www.CuidadoDeSalud.gov.) or call the Marketplace Call Center at 1-800-318-2596. Information on JPS Connection is at www.jpshealthnet.org/for_patients/low_cost_medical_care/overview_of_jps_.... To speak with an Eligibility and Enrollment specialist, call 817-702-1001.
