    According to the author of this paper, the cost at his institution is $72.90.

    (this info is near the end of the study)

    According to: http://www.cs.nsw.gov.au/csls/handbo...=175&fromESS=1

    Medicare charges $34.30 for the test, I do not know what percentage of the total cost medicare settles for though. Bear in mind that this site is Australian.
