Primary care provides a full spectrum of primary health care services for Alaska Native and American Indian families in the Anchorage Service Unit. In 2000, Southcentral Foundation became the first major health care provider in Alaska—and one of the first in the nation—to offer same-day access to quality medical care for any reason in most departments.
Your primary care provider and their team includes one or two medical assistants, a full-time nurse who focuses on care coordination and an administrative assistant who provides case management support. Additionally, new members can be added or subtracted to your team as your health care needs change. For example, your case manager can refer you to pharmacists, nurse midwives, chiropractors, and other specialists.
We offer a full range of primary care services, including:
- Acute and chronic disease treatment
- Preventive care
- Same day appointments
- Minor surgery
- Lab and X-ray
- Social services
- Maternity care
With SCF’s balanced commitment between high-quality services, family wellness and shared responsibility, the organization depends on more than just Indian Health Service (IHS) funding. In addition to private insurance, there are other family health resources you may qualify for, such as Family Medicaid, Denali KidCare, Under 21 Medicaid, Social Security, Medicare and Disability. Please visit the Family Health Resources page for more information.
To make an appointment, email your provider or see your electronic health record, please log in to myANMC.
