There is currently a national shortage of TB Skin Tests. Chapel Hill Pediatrics will continue to administer the TB Skin Test to our current patients under 5 years old as needed.
Any child 5 years and older requiring a TB screen will receive a blood test, Interferon Gamma Release Assay (IGRA) known as QuantiFERON-TB Gold. You may check with your insurance company to see if this test is covered under your policy. The billing code for the test is 86480.
