Help! Partnered pension application

We have applied for partnered pension and have provided Cenrelink with all the information they have asked for about both of us. 

After 3 months and a rejection because they made a calculation error in earnings it looks like I am about to receive a partial pension but nothing has registered for my partner.

Question 1 - Does he have to apply separately even thought they have all his info? 

Question 2  - Do I have to apply for a health care card or does it come automatically after a pension is granted?

Thanks all but this has got to be one of the most bloody frustrating experiences.....
