HOW THE CURRENT (BROKEN) SYSTEM WORKS
Frontier Direct Care follows the Direct Primary Care (DPC) subscription based model. DPC
cuts out the middlemen, restoring the direct line from patient to provider, allowing a doctor
who knows them to be their guide and to coordinate specialty care when necessary. Now
the patient has an advocate who is incentivized to keep them happy and healthy, instead of
a provider who gets referral kickbacks and makes money on unnecessary follow-up visits.
DPC simplifies healthcare delivery, taking the focus away from visit volume and
reimbusement, and allowing providers to focus on patients and their needs. When
reimbursement is not tied to the individual, unlimited access is made easy.
HERE’S HOW WE CAN HELP
Q: Does FDC accept insurance?
A: Frontier Direct Care is a membership based subscription to a team of doctors and clinics. Your insurance may be utilized for lab services. For example, if your PCP orders lab work or imaging your insurance can be utilized. Your insurance is not necessary for the clinic visit since this cost is covered through your monthly membership.
Q: What is the co-pay or office visit fee?
A: Since your visits are covered through your monthly membership fee, no co-pays are required. With your membership you can call, text, and visit your provider as much as you need. The only items not covered through your membership cost are lab and imaging services which can be filed to your insurance carrier.
Q: What is included in my membership?
- Direct access
- Unlimited office visits: no waiting or copays
- Frontier Health Access: negotiated rates for ancillary services
- Transparent pricing: no added fees for common office procedures
Q: What is Frontier Health Access (FHA)?
A: FHA is for the 15% (specialists) that Direct Care does not cover. This is the contracting arm for specialty services. FHA gives you our member transparency and access to cash pay agreements we have signed on your behalf.
Q: What services are at no extra cost/what do I have to pay for out-of-pocket?
A: Our healthcare teams have the ability to treat a wide range of needs at no additional cost such as acute illnesses, sports physicals, women’s health, and other minor procedures. For a more comprehensive list, please review our Service List. Transparent pricing is our goal. We are here to help answer any questions you might have. Please call/text Member Services with any questions you may have.
Q: Does FDC see patients who are pregnant?
A: We do see pregnant patients up until the 2nd trimester, after which time, we will refer you to an obstetrician for the rest of your care for pregnancy and labor/delivery. After your baby is born, we would be happy to resume care for you and your newborn. Of course if you have any questions or concerns during your 3rd trimester, please feel free to contact your health care team.
Q: Does FDC administer vaccines?
A: We currently are able to administer vaccines for children under the age of 18 who are uninsured. Our goal is to expand this service to be able to administer a wide variety of vaccines to our patients. At this time we can direct you to a local pharmacy or the nearest health department.

A: For urgent needs or same day appointments, you can schedule an appointment:

Q: Do I have to show up early for my appointment time?
A: There is no need to, unless you want to enjoy a cup of coffee away from the world for a minute. We strive for on time appointments and we do not double book because your time is valuable. With that being said, if you are running late, please call Member Services and they will help navigate the next steps.
Q: How long is a member’s visit at Frontier?
A: For your first visit, we schedule an hour for you to meet your healthcare team! During this time you can go over all your medical history and needs. Subsequent visits are 30 minute appointments.
