Just for information, my insurance has processed the bills for all labwork ordered by my TRT doc who is not my primary physician. This is a Good Thing because I also get the benefit of the insurance company negotiated rate. On one the $1,500 rack rate dropped to $78, for example.
One thing I've learned by speaking with the lab techs: The rack rate shown above is for insurance-covered patients. Most labs (including Quest and Labcorp) have a different pricing schedule for patients not covered by insurance. I don't know how that would compare to the rates offered by Discounted Labs and other self managed testing services.
