INR cost

I assume you're talking about the USA. All medical costs are all over the board. You'll have to find out what it costs in your area. Even then, I wouldn't be surprised if ithe cost were different every time you use the lab. I've never been able to figure out costs.

Two suggestions. One, but a meter and do it yourself. This isn't an outrageous proposition anymore. Second, since you know you'll have these expenses, buy a Medicare supplemental plan that includes lad testing.  ...and a third option would be switch to a NOAC. No miss, no fuss, and for the vast majority of us, much safer.

The services I speak of are for my own machine.  I'm trying to reduce cost not add by adding Medicare plan.

You didn't say why you were taking Warfarin. I assumed because of an arrhythmia but if it's for a valve problem, forget the NOAC suggestion.

NOAC == Novel Oral Anti-Coagulants. That is, Eliquis, Pradaxa, and Xarelto. Of the group,  Eliquis is the safest but the others have their uses, too.
