User avatar Hi wilsonj,
Here is a website for the Texas Department of State Health Services.
Scroll down to Health Service Regions located on the left of the page.
Click on it and it will take you to a Health Service Region 1 - 11 for you to choose from. Each region includes the area, website, and telephone number for you to inquire about what services that are provided. I hope you find this information helpful and thank you for using

And if it's any comfort to your pocket book. Thyroid medication is one of the cheapest group of drugs out there. Mine is always under twenty dollars a month. Go get tested.
