I would add to what Penny said and say that you may want to try to share your financial concerns with the doctor again to let them know how difficult it is for you. They may not agree to any changes, but at least they have some understanding of your situation. As well, if they do prescribe you medication in the future, maybe they will require more infrequent drug testing if they are aware of the financial burden.

Like Penny said, though, if you look for a new provider you may find the same situation. If this provider is willing to prescribe the medication after the clean drug tests, it may be worth sticking with them at this point. Perhaps you can apply for a reduced fee service at the office as well.
