Cooper Health introduces new program providing individualized care

Cooper University Health Care is thrilled to announce the launch of a new membership-based primary care practice that offers a more personalized level of care. Patients can now join Direct Primary Care for a monthly fee of $138, which is separate from their insurance premiums. This innovative care model includes several 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, and more.

Leading the new offering at Cooper are family practitioners Drs. James Runfola and Leonard Ridilla. Dr. Runfola explains that this model can benefit patients with chronic medical conditions as well as those who desire access to their physician at any time. Dr. Ridilla adds 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 offered in this model 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, remarks on this unique model’s ability to provide patients with a personalized level of care by offering more time and attention from their doctor. The launch of this program 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 Haddon Ave in Haddonfield
