Default TB testing...where to get that done?

My husband's new employer requires a TB test but I can't find anywhere that does that in my internet searching. We found one place in Avery Ranch, but it's $40 and I'm pretty sure we will not get reimbursed for that. Any ideas?

Williamson County Health Dept. does TB Skin Testing. This is from their website (http://www.wcchd.org): (broken link)

Tuberculosis skin testing is provided at all clinic locations during immunization hours or by appointment. Tests are not typically administered on Thursdays since they must be read 48-72 hours after administration, which would fall on a weekend. If the clinic is scheduled to be open on Saturday we will accommodate persons who need testing on a Thursday.

Skin testing is offered for $20.00 to persons who are required to have testing for employment or school purposes, persons who are being screened for becoming foster parents and other like situations. This is not a fee that is waived due to an inability to pay.

Testing may be offered free of charge to persons who have had recent exposure to a person with confirmed, active tuberculosis and in other situations that place them at considerable risk for development of TB disease if infected.

Any lab at any hospital/clinic can do it.
