How quickly can Blue Care provide services?

We will contact your patient as soon as we receive your referral to coordinate their care. We will discuss with them any potential subsidies they may be entitled to and facilitate on-referral to government departments, such as My Aged Care for patients over 65 and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders over 50.

Referring a family member

If you would like to refer yourself or a family member to us, give the friendly Customer Service team a call on 1300 258 322. You may wish to talk with your GP about the best services for you.

Patients 65 years and over and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders aged 50 years and over, may be eligible to access Government subsidised services through My Aged Care. We can discuss with you potential government subsidies you may be entitled to or if you prefer, you can pay for your in-home support privately.
