Did you know that the youngest baby boomer will not turn 65 until 2029? 

We recognize that seniors have unique healthcare needs as they age and manage chronic health conditions, such as diabetes and heart disease. From emergencies to preventive care, JPS provides innovative, compassionate care for older adults.

Our JPS Magnolia Health Center is a new primary care clinic specializing in care for senior adults age 60 older. It is located at 1400 S. Main St., fourth floor, Fort Worth. The phone number to make an appointment is 817-702-1100.  

JPS accepts Medicare, and has a special program that can help eligible seniors with expenses that Medicare may not cover, such as the prescription drug coverage Part D coverage gap (better known as the “donut hole.”) JPS Connections is also available as a secondary coverage option for patients with Medicare coverage. For details, contact JPS Enrollment and Eligibility at 817-702-1001, or send an e-mail to eligibility@jpshealth.org.

In addition, people newly enrolled in Medicare are can get one “Welcome to Medicare” visit with a healthcare provider. This is different than your yearly checkup. This is a new type of visit designed to give you and your provider time to talk about prevention, go over your overall health and make a plan for helping you stay healthy. This visit must be scheduled during your first 12 months of Medicare eligibility. To schedule a visit, call 817-702-7392.
