Cooper Health introduces new program providing individualized care

At Cooper University Health Care, patients now have the option to join Direct Primary Care for a monthly fee of $138, separate from their insurance premiums. This new membership-model primary care practice offers a more personalized level of care, with features such as unlimited primary care visits without billing insurance directly, access to the healthcare provider’s cellphone, guaranteed same-day or next-day appointments, extended appointment times, access to the MyCooper electronic health record system, and a variety of diagnostic services, preventative screenings, medically necessary referrals to specialists.

Leading this new offering at Cooper are family practitioners Drs. James Runfola and Leonard Ridilla. According to Runfola, this model can benefit patients with chronic medical conditions as well as those who desire access to their physician at any time. Ridilla added that although this model may not be suitable for everyone, patients who wish to be more engaged with their primary care physician will have the opportunity to do so at Cooper. The level of access allows for same-day and next-day appointments as well as the option to speak with the provider over the phone after hours.

Dr. Greg Taylor, medical director at Cooper Care Alliance remarked on the unique model that provides patients with a personalized level of care and offers more time and attention from their doctor. This launch coincided with another exciting addition to the Cooper Health team: former U.S. District Judge John Vazquez who will be serving as the health care provider’s first chief legal officer. The Direct Primary Care office is located at 89 N
