Fee Policy

As your local GP practice the Loxton Health Centre takes pride in delivering a high quality service to our patients and community.

After much consideration we have made the difficult decision to modify our fee policy. From 1 November 2022 the Loxton Health Centre will become a private billing practice.

This means there will be a GAP or out of pocket cost for all patients including concession and pension card holders.

Pension and Concession card holders will receive a discounted fee however we will
require payment in full on the day.

Children under 16 years and DVA patients will continue to be bulk billed.
