Integrated Team Care
The Integrated Team Care program supports Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples with chronic disease* in the Murrumbidgee region. Working with your GP, our care coordinators will support you to access the right health services and can help you meet related costs.
Our care coordinators will assess your health care goals and provide assistance with the following:
- Coordinate health care advocacy and assistance
- Coordinate transport assistance
- Work with you, your relevant carers and your GPs
- Liaise with other local service providers to ensure you are accessing the right services
- Use a team-based/empowering approach to your care planning
* For the purpose of the Integrated Team Care program, and consistent with the MBS, an eligible condition is one that has been, or is likely to be, present for at least six months.
