Cooper Health introduces new program providing individualized care

New Cooper University Health Care Practice Provides Personalized Primary Care for a Monthly Fee

Cooper University Health Care has recently introduced a new primary care practice that provides patients with a more personalized level of care. This new membership-model practice, called Direct Primary Care, allows patients to join for a monthly fee of $138, separate from their insurance premiums. The care model includes 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, and access to the MyCooper electronic health record system.

Leading this new offering at Cooper are family practitioners Drs. James Runfola and Leonard Ridilla, who have worked in a DPC-model office for the past five years. 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 unique level of access provided by Direct Primary Care allows for same-day and next-day appointments as well as the option to speak with the provider over the phone after hours. This personalized level of care offers more time and attention from doctors and can benefit patients in many ways. 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.
