Who asked you to have them? They appear to be immunisations not tests, you may have already had some esp MMR which is usually given in childhood. Are you travelling somewhere exotic? You could call the doc and ask how much.

Why not ask your insurance company?

as far as I know these shots (measles,Mumps,and Rubella) must be covered by the insurance if the person is from 0-16 yrs old if older guess it will be under the evaluation of the your Insurance Company if they would reimburse what you spent or not. Just like the previous post the best thing to do is call your insurance company to check which shots and tests can be covered.

If you call your insurance they should be able to give you a document detailing coverage for vaccinations or just answer your questions directly over the phone.

MMR and TD need to be boosted every ten years. I've never had a meningitis vaccination so that one must be new. Tuberculosis tests are done by making a small injection just under the surface of the skin on the underside of your forearm. You then go back and have a doctor look at it within 24-48 hours. They can tell by the way your body reacts whether or not you're a carrier of TB.

In the US a TB test is $10-25. These are routine vaccinations and tests and you don't need to be going somewhere exotic to need them. In the US all teachers and daycare workers are required to have a TB test every year.

Call the insurance to find out the costs, but I imagine they'll cover all or most as it's definitely in their best interest for you to have these!!
