    You can call the business office for the lab you are using and ask for the cost of the test and then figure out your co-payment.  Or, the lab may be willing to estimate this for you. 

    If you have several tests you want completed at once, you can ask your physician or the lab to submit a pre-authorization and this will provide you with an estimate of your portion of the cost (co-payment and deductible), as well as, give you an idea if anything won't be covered.
