Overview


Our Tuberculosis (TB) Control Clinic works with patients in Butler County who have latent tuberculosis infection and active tuberculosis. Our patients are referred to us by the state TB Control Program, hospital infection control representatives, and physicians in our community. Our nurses work closely with the patients that come into the clinic to ensure proper treatment.

Services & Fees


Medications for active and latent tuberculosis are provided free of charge to the patient.   These medications are provided through the Butler County Health Department by the state TB Control Program.  Butler County Health Department works with all patients regardless of insurance status and uses a sliding fee scale to determine charges for services. If a patient does not have insurance coverage, we will ask for a statement of annual income. Patients will not be denied services based on ability to pay as long as they provide appropriate income documentation and their eligibility is determined. Call (316) 321-3400 for more information.
