Cooper Health introduces new program providing individualized care

Direct Primary Care (DPC) is a new membership-model primary care practice introduced by Cooper University Health Care. It offers patients a more personalized level of care for a monthly fee of $138, separate from their insurance premiums. This new 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, access to the MyCooper electronic health record system, and a variety of diagnostic services, preventative screenings, medically necessary referrals to specialists, and more.

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. This 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.

In addition to this unique model providing patients with a personalized level of care, offering more time and attention from their doctor, Cooper University Health Care has also welcomed former U.S. District Judge John Vazquez as its first chief legal officer. The Direct Primary Care office is located at 89 N. Haddon Ave. in Haddonfield.
