CARE COORDINATION AND SUPPLEMENTARY SERVICES PROGRAM

People with certain chronic diseases are able to access the Care Coordination and Supplementary Services Program. 

This information is provided for the assistance of health professionals in referring appropriate clients to CCSS.

To access the program clients will have had one of the following chronic diseases for six months or longer:
  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Cancer
  • Chronic Respiratory Disease
  • Chronic Renal Disease
  • Diabetes
The program aims to improve the client's management of their chronic disease, health and wellbeing through better access to coordinated, multi-disciplinary care and services.

Care coordinators will work collaboratively with clients  and mainstream services to ensure the provision of culturally appropriate care and support to optimise health outcomes.

The program is available to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people living in the Mildura, Swan Hill, Kerang and Robinvale areas, regardless of which GP or health service they use.

Clients will need to be referred by their GP using the Care Coordinator and Supplementary Services referral form along with their GP Management Plan or Team Care Arrangement in place.

As part of the program clients can access Supplementary Services Funding to assist them in accessing follow up specialist and allied health services and or medical aids and equipment required to manage the their chronic disease. Supplementary Services Funds are restricted and can take up to 5 days to be approved by Murray Primary Health Network. MDAS is unable to provide immediate financial or transport assistance, you will need to seek other funding options such as VPTAS.

The MDAS CCSS brochure is available to provide further information.

For further details download the Care Coordination and Supplementary Service Information Sheet or the CCSS Guidelines or contact the service at MDAS.
