Jumpstart Your Journey to Healthy Living

We are excited to share that you can now take advantage of medical benefits available to improve your health.  Formé Medical Center has an exclusive offer which will provide you with the opportunity to receive dignified, high-quality, transparent but most importantly, affordable healthcare.

With a strong foundation at our Center that includes an array of needed preventive medical services, we were able to create a Medical Membership Model that mirrors a gym membership concept. Our vision of this incredible offer is to ensure that all social classes in the community have access to preventive healthcare and achieve favorable health outcomes but most importantly, have the choice to choose an affordable plan that works for you.  Our efforts are endless as we are focused on helping the uninsured community.  Current and upcoming collaborations with Westchester Medical Center and Montefiore, will provide additional resources to our new Membership model.

Imagine coming to your doctor and not needing to worry about paying high costs for services.  You simply show up, scan your card, see the doctor and go on with your day.

You ask yourself, “How is this possible?”  So here it is… Formé Medical Center’s Membership Model consists of three tiers:  Basic, Plus and Premium.  Each plan is offered at an affordable price.  For a low-monthly fee along with a one-time Annual Fee of $50*, you will receive well-rounded services at our Center with our providers and specialists exclusive of Lab Testing (Available at a Discounted Rate with our Lab Vendor).  Furthermore, you will have the benefit of being referred to our community specialty partners for an additional discounted fee.

CEO of Forme Medical Center, Maria Trusa, joins United Way of Westchester and Putnam Board of Directors

The United Way of Westchester and Putnam announced that Maria Trusa, CEO of Forme Medical Center and Urgent Care, has been appointed to its Board of Directors effective April 11th, 2018.

The mission of United Way of Westchester and Putnam is to provide stability and promise to the people and families of Westchester and Putnam who are living life from behind. Alana Sweeny, President and CEO of United Way said “Maria absolutely transformed Scarsdale Medical Practice, now one of the premier healthcare organizations in our Counties. And in Formé, she’s innovating brilliantly to bring quality healthcare, in a medical membership model, to the uninsured individuals and families in desperate need. She is no less than a perfect addition to our board.”

Maria was the Executive Director of the Scarsdale Medical Group, a successful multi-specialty medical practice in Westchester, NY. With a trajectory of 26 years at Scarsdale, she decided to venture out and join forces with her business partner Gina Cappelli at Formé Medical Center in an effort to assist others in need. As CEO, Maria stands proudly and tenaciously behind Formé Medical Center, a Social Enterprise practice that offers high-quality, dignified medical care to residents and undocumented immigrants of Westchester County and surrounding communities.

“What a privilege to be part of such an historic entity,” said Ms. Trusa, “ Just like Formé, United Way of Westchester and Putnam is working on the front edges of innovation to make a lasting impact on so many.”

After a year and a half of working on a Medical Membership Model, Maria and Gina Cappelli developed a medical membership concept comprised of three levels of care, which will allow thousands in our Counties to access quality preventative care. There are no co-pays, deductibles or additional payments required for these services. Says Ms. Trusa, “The Formé approach shapes to the lives of our patients, rather than asking patients to shape their lives around traditional and inaccessible forms of medical care.”

Formé Medical Center: Transforming Healthcare

As the fate of healthcare is strongly challenged, Healthcare Executives are constantly working on ways of impacting healthcare.  At Formé Medical Center, leaders Gina Cappelli, Founder and President and Maria M. Trusa, Partner and CEO have brought promise to the community with an innovative approach to improving healthcare outcomes.

A recent Census has publicized the vast number of uninsured patients to be 27 million in the US as a whole inclusive of 1,185,000 in New York State and 183,436 in Westchester County.   Many individuals often neglect their well-being due to the impediments of access, awareness and affordable healthcare.  In a conservatively employed population, there are often times where many are uninsured due to eligibility where earnings are above the qualifying range for Medicaid and/or are not sufficient to obtain plans similar to Obama Care.  Moreover, health and healthcare disparities are commonly viewed through race and ethnicity, but occur across a broad range of magnitudes.  Efforts to reduce disparities include a focus on designated priority populations who are vulnerable to health and healthcare disparities.  For many, there is certainty in the decreased and limited access to healthcare due to lack of education, awareness, language barrier and access to preventive care.

Formé Medical’s CEO, Maria M. Trusa is far too familiar with the challenges of the underserved and uninsured communities.  As a Dominican immigrant, Ms. Trusa experienced disparities at first hand.  Due to her own trials and tribulations and a 26 year trajectory as a Healthcare Executive in an organization exclusive to an affluent population, Ms. Trusa clearly recognized the need for transformation in healthcare for the uninsured and underserved communities being cognizant of the standards of quality care.

With a focus on the uninsured community at hand in Westchester County and sharing in the vision of transforming healthcare experiences, Ms. Cappelli and Ms. Trusa introduced a program known as the “Formé Medical Membership”  to impact the overall health and well-being of the uninsured and underserved communities; offering dignified, high-quality, accessible, transparent and affordable healthcare.

Stay tuned as we welcome you to learn about our “New Healthcare Transformation Model” which will afford you the opportunity to obtain a variety of healthcare services for an UNBELIEVABLY LOW AND AFFORDABLE MONTHLY COST!
