I have a 70-200 usm IS lens that is several years old and very well used. It still focuses nicely however there seems to be some slop in the zoom portion of the lens. What all is done on a refurbish and would it be basically brand new?

Generally a reburbishment is something that is done on the manufacturers end with product that was returned for some reason. They build it back to spec, replace cosmetic damages, test it, and re-sell it - not to the original owner. What you're talking about is more like a repair, not a refurbishment.

Based on repairs I've heard of, I'd expect it to be somehwere in the neighborhood of $150 - $200. But those were always for distinct repairs (AF ring, glass, housing, etc.) No idea what they'd charge for severe slop, seems like that would require entirely new housing.
Unfortunately Canon won't tell you how much it's going to cost until you send it in.
