Does Appletree offer TB testing?
Yes. Appletree offers a skin test called the Mantoux tuberculin skin test. This test is performed by injecting a small amount of fluid (called tuberculin) into the skin in the lower part of the arm. After completing this test, the patient must return within 48 to 72 hours to review the results and look for any reaction on the arm.
The Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) does not cover the cost of TB skin tests that are required for employment, travel or volunteer purposes. To find out the cost of this test, review our Uninsured Services Price List.
Medically necessary TB skin tests and documentation are covered under the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP).
