Most people are able to get this done through their primary care physician.

You absolutely should ask what the cost of the testing is - it can vary widely as labs/hospitals have multiple price levels depending on what your insurer can bargain them down to during negotiations.

And your insurer can cover all the cost under the "annual physical" - or have significant charges or copays for the blood and urine work.

Perhaps a word on the recommendation for such testing.
It is mainly directed at those playing/training at a fairly intense level.
Still, my nephew was found to have an asymptomatic fairly serious kidney problem just last month having a "routine" urine test going out for the GOLF team.
