FAQ

Is the GatorCare Talkspace benefit unlimited?

GatorCare members do not have session limits. However, Talkspace is only able to load 30 sessions at a time, so when your provider tells you that you are getting low on credits or have run out of credits, contact gatorcare-support@talkspace.com to have your session limit refreshed at no cost to you.
