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 unveils a pioneering annual membership to aid the uninsured

White Plains-based Formé Urgent Care has recently unveiled a pioneering annual membership to aid the uninsured.

Founded in 2000 by Gina Cappelli, Formé Urgent Care has been making waves in Westchester’s medical scene for a number of years. In 2003, the company opened its very first extension clinic in Eastchester and, by spring 2014, had unveiled its popular Formé Urgent Care and Wellness Center in White Plains. Now, with the recent debut of the company’s innovative new medical membership, the uninsured will have a new option when seeking aid.

“We have developed a community outreach program called The Formé Medical Membership program, which was created to produce and service a large volume of cash-pay patients,” says company President Gina Cappelli. “This program officially launched on March 15th, 2016 and grants non-insured members access to affordable and dignified urgent care and physical therapy services for $1 per day.”

“When Gina and I met we both knew that we wanted to figure out a way to help the uninsured population,” adds CEO Maria Trusa. “For many years I had a vision of creating a medical practice where this community could have access to dignified care which means quality providers, great customer service and affordable prices. It was a huge passion and dream of mine. We looked at different options until one day Gina came up with the concept of a membership to our urgent care.”

​This membership offers participants discounts on medical care at Formé’s facilities in White Plains, which include walk-in medical care facilities as well as diagnostic and treatment centers, for $365 a year. It is a bold new way to offer care to the uninsured at relatively low cost compared with standard health insurance plans.

The founders feel Westchester in particular is fertile territory for this forward-thinking approach to care. “We both live in Westchester County and knew from the statistics that there are over 116,000 uninsured individuals in this county, according to the Westchester County Department of Health. It was important to us to help our community and create positive change,” says Trusa.

Apparently the plan is paying off, as Cappelli and Trusa already see a great deal of expansion in the cards. “We have been extremely happy with the way the program is being accepted by the different non-profit and political organizations, medical providers, laboratories, imaging companies, pharmacies, and local businesses,” remarks Cappelli.“ We are projecting that this program will grow so rapidly—due to the tremendous need for an affordable option to those individuals who do not have insurance—that we will have to open up satellite offices in nearby cities.”
