As to cost; this will depend on whether it's the large front element or the small rear element, but the difference will be minor as most of the cost will be labour. You'll need to get a quote for this, but be sure to sit down first - expect something in the region of 50% of the cost of the lens new.
Check out your household insurance. You may be covered for this sort of thing.
i had a look on amazon and ebay and that kind of stuff and they offered lens repair solutions. t's the front element of the lens that is scratched less that a millimetre deep.
