Question about getting tested for food allergies

Where can I get it done? Can it be done by any local clinic or is it done by my doctor/gastrologist? Will it be covered my (parent's) insurance or do I have to pay it out of my pocket? And if I do have to pay for it, how much does it cost about? I know prices may vary, but just give me a general number, thanks <IMG SRC="">

I had mine done by my allergist. Whether or not this or the LEAP tests are covered by your parent's insurance depends on what type of insurance they have.
