replacing the rear bumper cover on 2003 Honda Accord

On a very cold day I tapped a concrete pole base and cracked the plastic cover on the rear bumper. The repair seems very expensive, over $600, is there a way to repair the crack

Once the bumper is removed the crack can be heated and plastic welded but requires painting afterward. I was just rear ended going to work last week. I took the bumper off and brought it to a body shop to repair. The bumper covers remove pretty easily, perhaps if you took it off and brought it to a body shop they would charge less.
