Default Anyone know where i can get a TB test?

I'm currently w/o health insurance and need to get a TB test for an upcoming internship. Does anyone know where I can get one for low to no cost? I tried googling but came up empty handed

Try a walk-in clinic in a local hospital. It's cheaper than an emergency room visit.

do you have health clinics in Stoddard?

try calling Planned Parenthood if one is in your area. SOMETIMES they do non-gyno work and everything is on a sliding scale..

if that doesn't work call NH Health & Human Services - they should be able to get you on the right track - they offer free services to eligible people

Aren't TB tests pretty cheap even at the normal doctor's office? If I recall they are fairly rudimentary.

You may want to just call a lab directly for a price. Quest Diagnostics for example has offices around the state.

At any public health clinic (for about $20) or at a regular doctor's office visit (which will cost about $60, if you're uninsured).

edit: or at a walk-in minor emergency clinic, for about the same price as a doctor's visit, but without having to make an appointment.
