So i went to the clinic today to schedule a drug screen for school at riverland. I asked how much they are and was told $91. That much to basically pee in a cup? Someone want to comment why it costs this much or why their ripping us off? I knew it wouldn't be free but 91 dollars?

The cost is a cumulative process from collection site to a lab to process and report to the MRO to finalize then those results are sent back to the originating lab which then posts the results back to collection agency/client.

During the drug testing phase, the lab receives the samples via fedex, usps, ups, etc. then paper work is verified against the attached sample, from there the sample is accessioned and poured into vials to be screened.  The screened samples are then sent over to extraction to get prepared to be sent over to confirmation, from confirmation the output from the sample is then tabulated, printed and sent to data entry, the sample is placed in holders and will be sent to a freezer to be held for x number of years.

Data entry then processes the sample output into a database, triage prepares the processed information which is then sent to managerial review which then is sent to the MRO.  The MRO reviews the data and sends back their response.  From response goes to customer service, which then informs the collector the results.

As you can see a sample changes lots of hands, the amount of chemicals and high tech equipment needed to process samples.  
AU680 analyzers, GCMS, LCMS, etc are just some of the machines used.
Not to mention, personnel overhead, wages, utilities, other incurred costs just to process.  Then there are the Federal rules, regulations, mandates, red tape, etc.

Running a sample is NOT as simple as it is on those crime shows where it spits out a result in 5min.  In actuality, it takes days to process a shipment of samples.  Just on a GCMS or LCMS which actually does the detection of drugs, will take hours to process.

Actually I typed it all.  I left out a few steps to try and keep it brief.
After all I did work in the IT department in the same lab.
