Group urges JPS board to better serve poor in Tarrant County, TX

Fort Worth Star-Telegram, June 13, 2008

The Women’s Policy Forum, a women’s advocacy group, is urging the board at JPS Health Network board to improve access to the taxpayer-supported system and to better serve Tarrant County, TX, residents who cannot afford medical care. The Forum recommended that JPS reduce co-payments, eliminate parking fees, and lower eligibility requirements for low-income people enrolled in its healthcare programs. The group said that prior to making the recommendations, it had studied JPS problems, met with physicians, and read the reports from a Houston-based consultant hired by JPS.
