Report Hello I am new here and need advice in Tourette Syndrome and Tics Posted June 26, 2008 Joann, I think you are wise to start with the allergist. What kind of insurance do you have? When is your appointment? I may have an idea for you. My appointment is on July 7th. I have Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance - it's nothing special and I expect that these tests might not even be covered. But the receptionist told me that tests usually cost $300 to $500 without coverage - which is so much better than the other doctor.
