If these things were not a part of MANDATED coverage competitors in the market place would drive the cost lower than what a negotiation could. If I had the choice as to which lab I wanted to use that would create a situation whereby you could actually find yourself in a "Walmart" situation where entrepreneurs would set up a "big box" operation and lower costs for EVERYONE through quality and volume. Anytime the govt gets involved in anything the costs will rise.
