Insurance Plans


Continuous Medicaid coverage ends on March 31, 2023. There are three things you need to do to ensure your coverage remains active.
  1. Look for the notice saying “Action Required” in a yellow envelope from HHSC and respond quickly when you get it.
  2. Update your information as soon as possible, especially if your contact information has changed. You can do this by logging into your account at or through the Your Texas Benefits mobile app.
  3. If you don’t have an account, you can create one on the website or mobile app. Or you can call 2-1-1 and choose option 2 to update your information.

In the event you are no longer eligible for Medicaid, we are here to help you. Contact the Eligibility Center at 817-702-1001 for assistance.

JPS Health Network and its affiliated facilities are contracted with the following insurance companies and provider networks to provide services to covered members at in-network benefit levels. We always recommend that you contact the insurance company to confirm eligibility and pre-certify services and procedures.

If you have questions about any of these plans, call the number listed on your Member ID Card or the general Member Services phone number listed by your Insurer below.

Welcome to Medicare

As a JPS patient turning 65, we’d like to provide you with some information regarding Medicare enrollment and continued benefits offered at JPS.

Who is Eligible for Medicare?
Generally, Medicare is available for people 65 or older, younger people with disabilities and people with End Stage Renal Disease (permanent kidney failure requiring dialysis or transplant). Medicare has four parts:

  • Part A (Hospital Insurance) helps pay for inpatient hospital stays, skilled nursing facility care, home healthcare, and hospice.
  • Part B (Medicare Insurance) helps cover medically necessary services like doctor visits and outpatient care. Part B also covers many preventive services (including screening tests and shots), diagnostic tests, some therapies, and durable medical equipment like wheelchairs and walkers. Together Part A and Part B are also referred to as “Original Medicare”.
  • Part C (Medicare Advantage Plan [MA]) is another way to get your Medicare benefits. I combines Part A, B, and sometimes D (prescription drug coverage). MA plans are managed by private insurance companies approved by Medicare. These plans cover medically necessary services. However, plans can charge different co-payments, co-insurance, or deductibles for these serves than Original Medicare.
  • Part D (Medicare Prescription Drug Coverage) helps pay for outpatient prescription drugs. Part D may help lower your prescription drug costs and protect you against higher costs in the future.
