I did my daily check-in this morning and got selected. Every week I travel 5 hours to see my child 1 hour supervised at a counseling center in another state and then drive back because I have to go back to work tomorrow morning. I have been doing this for the past 3 years because I'm going through a bad custody trial. Anyway when I selected the quest lab in another state they only charged $18-$20 depending on which lab I chose. I wonder why it's less than half the price over there?!
Because it's business, nothing else. Labs from Texas have to be sent to California or so they say. The chemical dependancy evaluation is also big business, I payed $800 after using a doc not on the states list after being approved. The other docs pretty much wanted $3000 to $6000 for a 30 minute face to face interview and 1 hour test. That equates to about $50 a minute if paying 6k. The board sees nothing wrong with this.
