When I had the positive cable done, the former dealer/service center across the street from my old work location charged me 3.5 hours, including the diagnostic time. I supplied the part and I'm pretty sure they charged a straight book time and and hour or so diagnostic time per their policy.
When I had my Indy replace the starter, he charged me 1.5 hours, and supplied the part.
I don't know if the time consuming part of the cable labor shares any significant labor with accessing the starter, but agree that replacing the cable is a good idea. The corrosion that form and causes issues is less a function of mileage driven than time and start/charge cycles.
As I've said in a number of posts, finally isolating the cable as contributing to my long cranks and starts was one of the best repairs I've made to my car. Completely rejuvenated the electrical system.
