"Got a tremendous this amount of pushback. What's the mentality of Florida's government in terms of dealing with this? I imagine if the state is not interested in working with the federal government than this feels really rather hopeless. Yeah we've seen a real turnaround on that with The new governor Rhonda Santa's He's Appointed a chief science officer and handed chief resilience officer and both of them appeared at this climate summit in Key West this week and you know definitely are acknowledging that change is coming and that we have to deal with it. What will we lose if we lost key west? Talk about what it is that makes that place special to people who live there. The Key West is actually Among the higher spots along the keys. That's why it was one of the first to be settled. You know I mean the original settlers were on the higher ground so so But the keys as a whole I mean it's just a really beautiful and a lot of the time tranquil well Ireland community. You have Florida Bay and the Gulf of Mexico on one side the Atlantic Ocean on the other so every day we get both gorgeous. sunrises is an sunsets. We have an amazing environment. We have to National Parks Living Coral Reef and Really wonderful communities with lots of interesting people doing interesting things before I let you go Nancy. I remember from every hurricane that I ever covered in south Florida as a South Florida. Native at the One group of people you could count on to not to evacuate worth people in the keys. Like we've ridden them out before we're GONNA ride them out again and they do and they make it all the way through. What about now? Is this beginning to change the way people think. Think about writing it out. If climate change is going to dramatically change their home. Well I think. Some of our recent experience with Hurricanes Irma and Wilma Elma back in two thousand and five have changed that to some extent but there is definitely a resilient attitude among islanders of survival. All in figuring out how to make that happen. I mean people lived here before there was a road before there was a pipeline bringing fresh water and I think there's ideas about how to make that happen happen again. Be More resilient that's WWL. RN's Nancy Klinger. Who covers the Florida? Keys Nancy thanks for talking to us. Thank you let's bring it back to the panel with Ed Cheryl Cheryl and Jeff by the way. Did you know that there are direct flights Washington to Key West. Oh No oh you knew now I want to visit. Oh yes so. You've already kind of planned your post twenty twenty escape galaxy. It's on the list. It's definitely on the burn. Those Marianne point somewhere you know but I we gotta get to the election but one person who's not going to be making a deeper into the election cycle L. is Senator Kamala Harris. She launched her campaign. Whether you call a good segue that's right. She lost her campaign with a rally in Oakland before. More than twenty thousand people Bolinao less than a year later. She's dropped out of the running this week. Jeff what do you think with a big factors that force Comma Harris out well. The biggest factor apparently appears to be money She just wasn't getting enough. She wasn't fundraising enough to stay viable when she was a had already qualified for the next debate in December December the democratic debate so it it seemed a little bit surprising. The timing that she would she would pull out when they're you know other Democratic candidates who have not qualified but but she says In her announcement that she couldn't in good faith go forward in telling her supporters that she had pathway when she didn't see one herself and that had a lot to do with money in terms of why she wasn't making that money mean she made some mistakes during their campaign and one of them certainly had to do with health care There seemed also to be a little bit of a backfire after that moment That she had with Vice President Biden about race and And apparently some perhaps some infighting being in the campaign as well sure. Yeah I was GONNA say. There's a core reason why she wasn't raising that money in. That is that she seemed not to have a clear idea of what her our policies were and why she was running and she kind of did some flip flops but more important as Jeff just raised. There were a lot of internal difficulties within her campaign. There was a lot of attention a lot of controversy. My colleagues Jonathan Martin and others wrote a very explosive story. A few days before she withdrew detailing The resignation of one of her top can pain staffers. Who said that you know? Basically the campaign wasn't disarray. That ninety days before Iowa. They didn't have a clear idea of what they were doing. We we had people on the record a congresswoman on the record saying that she thought the campaign manager needed to be fired. Kamala Harris had put her sister in charge of the campaign. And so oh there were just all these internal difficulties and I think the bottom line is if you can't run your own campaign you really can't be president worth noting. Though and with the with the departure departure Kamala Harris the democratic pool gets a little more white. Yes it does Ah Cory Booker yesterday and this week in Iowa actually. A few times pointed out that the partner runs the risk of having more billionaires than black people in the race notable comments from Mike Bloomberg on Friday morning to Gail King. CBS when he was asked about this and he said look diversity obviously a bit concerned but diversity for diversity sake in this race isn't necessarily worth it. If the voters are not accepting accepting those candidates they got in. They started their campaign but for whatever reason voters aren't they're not resonating with voters. So why change the party rules. If they're not resonating is essentially his argument. Maybe didn't give it as artfully as he could have but he makes a point. which is this is marketplace of ideas and for whatever reason they haven't been able sustain themselves to things on Harris's ruling regarding timing it was money but it was also timing? Friday is the deadline to appear on the ballot and California and and her team decided that amid all these problems it be a little weird to be on the ballot in California and then have potentially have to remove your name from the ballot. It would expose her as vulnerable to a potential challenge when she's up for re election to the Senate in two thousand twenty two if she survives. The other is impeachment if she had to sit in Washington for more than two weeks in January for impeachment trial any momentum she was hoping to have an Iowa would be lost and so now impeachment is essentially Victimized at least one member number of the Democratic field with regards to the front runner the presumptive frontrunner Joe Biden. He had a heated exchange yesterday. With voter who kind of squared off with him in Iowa. The voter was questioning his son. Hunter Biden's business dealings in Ukraine with oil company. Barack Obama and it got pretty tense. Here's a clip role. No trump has been messing around in Ukraine over there. But you win the other hand sexual sun over there get a job and work for Gas Company. You've had no experience with Yasser nothing in order to get access off for the president. You a damn liar is not true and the.

What's the most dire dyer aspect of it for folks in the keys I guess the dire aspect of it is just what it would cost to keep all of our roads dry away with the sea level rise that's projected and whether that cost is worth it if you're only paving a road that reaches you know a couple dozen homes give it's a sense for those who haven't been to the Florida keys of exactly what these roads are like basically when you drive down to the keys you're taking us one and it kind of leads you all the way down the island chain from key Largo through Isla Morada to marathon all the way down to Key West right that's right and that road us one is obviously?

"By the hospital to get an itemized Bill, but they didn't drop the price. She had to pay three hundred and forty four dollars to cover her deductible. Then ten percent of the Bill. Parker says no one at the ER said anything about cost when she was there. She had realized how much it would be. She would have waited until Monday and gone to the county health department experience has given her a new perspective on money. I like to gauge everything now by how much my rabies shot costs. So my boss got a new roof on his house, and it costs twenty thousand dollars jerking that you couldn't even get half rabies vaccination for that one thing has not changed because of this experience. She still an animal lover would you hesitate now before pulling over if you saw a sick animal on the side of the road probably nuts and now with the project. Of a rabies vaccine. She says she might be even more inclined to stop the next time. That story comes to us from Nancy Klinger from member station W L R, and she was reporting from plantation key in Florida. I'm still with Dr Elizabeth Rosenthal. From Kaiser health news, Dr Rosenthal, forty eight thousand dollars for a shot. And I'm just trying to do the math. You Ginette had to pay ten percent responsible for more than four thousand bucks. That's right. And you know, rabies immunoglobulin is expensive. But many hospitals were charged about three thousand dollars for that. So the pricing here is pretty out of line. Why is the hospital able to charge more than ten times what it should be or what other hospitals story? Well, hospital prices are pretty arbitrary. There's little rhyme or reason for how they set their prices. And hey, look, this is a medical service you get refuse. You might have been exposed to rabies. So you're kind of a sitting duck, and they can basically charge whatever they want. The funny thing is when we looked into this we discovered that the price of the rabies medicine genetic got dropped from about. Seven thousand dollars a unit to about a one thousand six hundred fifty dollars a unit just a month or two later. So that shows you how crazy it is. Oh, so this hospital started charging dramatically less for this shot shortly after Ginette was treated. Yes. And when we asked the hospital, they said, oh, well, we periodically adjust our prices, but I'd like to note that on January first this year hospitals had to suddenly reveal their prices, but according to a new federal regulation. So they knew that that are maybe too high seven thousand dollar price would be out in the public as of January first. So maybe they were trying to make adjustments before new year came. Oh, wow. So the hospitals were were trying not to look outrageous when they were actually required to start telling people what they were charging. Well, that's one theory. You know? So the price dropped about sixty percent. And can you imagine? If like, you went to buy a Prius one month, and it was thirty thousand dollars and the next month on the first of the month. It was suddenly ten thousand dollars. I mean that would be outrageous. But that's what. Happens in medical care all the time. I certainly couldn't imagine if I paid the thirty thousand dollars and then sought drop like the next day. What can you do? I mean, if you're bitten by an animal, and you go to the hospital, and you're desperate, and you don't know that they're charging this much since for the moment. There's no kind of price drop guarantee in healthcare. I think what you need to do. First of all is protect your health. So you do need to go to the hospital you need to rabies immunoglobulin. You should know that many public health departments will handed out. So if it's during the week, you can check their first, and then, you know, try and go to an in network hospital. So at least you're a better negotiating power is anything in exchange for Jeanette. Can she get some money back? The problem with healthcare is that once you've spent it's very hard to get money back. But her ensure is negotiating this. And I do hope that, you know, they look at this price drop and say, hey, what gives we she shouldn't be responsible for that big.

Bill Of The Month: Rabies Treatment After Cat Bite costs $48,512

"Reality in our healthcare system prices that can be unpredictable and really really high. Now patients are told to be consumers to shop around and find the best prices. But in some situations, you really can't do that. You are stuck at a hospital which can charge you really whatever they want to this is at the heart of our latest Bill of the month segment. Dr Elizabeth Rosenthal from our partner. Kaiser health news is here to help us. Try and understand and dissect a huge Bill that was sent to us from a listener in the Florida Keys, Dr Rosenthal. Welcome back. Thanks for having me again. Well, who are we talking about today? We're talking about a Bill from Ginette Parker. She's forty four a biologist, and she was exposed to rabies or is afraid she might have been. So as you can imagine. She was rather alarmed. Yeah. That can be fatal. If you don't take care of it. Right. Absolutely. Luckily, they're really effective treatments. But it involves getting some immune globulin, and then basically a rabies vaccine, which is exactly what you did. Okay. Well, let's hear her story. And then I wanna come back to you and ask you some questions, but her story comes to us from reporter Nancy Klinger from member station. W L R N in south Florida. She went to visit Janette Janette Parker is an animal lover that's obvious from the menagerie at her home in the Florida Keys to dogs. Three cats Sakata tortoise. He's eighty pounds and poultry fish, tanks spirited dragon. That last one's a lizard. Her cats are normally pretty shy around company, but one of them comes out to greet us while another streaks under the couch that is breakneck Sally because she'll walk between your feet and trivia sale. Parker's love for animals has become part of her career. She's a wildlife biologist for the state of Florida. So she monitors the populations of indeed. Injured species like the key deer in the lower keys Marsh rabbit, but her love for animals gutter in trouble last September. She was on the mainland near Everglades national park, and she saw kitten by the side of the road. It's pretty common for people to dump animals in that area right outside the park. The kitten was skinny and looked like it was sick Parker had a packet of tuna in the car and pulled over to give it some food and in the process he just grabbed onto my finger while he was eating. So he broke the skin on my finger. Parker says the kitten wasn't trying to bite her and it was just a tiny little scratch, and I was in Barras to go to the emergency room over my tiny scratch, but he did break the skin, and I was bleeding and there had been rabies alert in the county not month couple of cats and quite a few raccoons tested positive and one otter also so Parker went to the emergency room at Mariners hospital just up the overseas highway from her house, she got the immunoglobulin injection that. Acts against rabies until the rabies vaccination takes effect. Yeah. Win homes. No big deal. I was in and out of there, really fast. And then the Bill came the total cost was forty eight thousand dollars. And I thought it was a joke. I just couldn't believe it. I it had to be a mistake. That was what I was thinking. I was sort of laughed, and I was upset at the same time. Yeah. I couldn't believe it. I shot. It was forty eight thousand dollars. Parker says she eventually stopped by the hospital to get an itemized Bill, but they didn't drop the price. She had to pay three hundred and forty four dollars to cover her deductible. Then ten percent of the Bill. Parker says no one at the said anything about cost when she was there. If she had realized how much it would be she would have waited until Monday and gone to the county health department, the experience has given her a new perspective on money.

I'm still with Dr Elizabeth Rosenthal. From Kaiser health news, Dr Rosenthal, forty eight thousand dollars for a shot. And I'm just trying to do the math. You Jeanette had to pay ten percent. I mean, she was responsible for more than four thousand bucks. That's right. And you know, rabies immunoglobulin is expensive. But many hospitals were charged about three thousand dollars for that. So the pricing here is pretty out of line. Why is the hospital able to charge more than ten times what it should be or what other hospitals, Jerry? Well, you know, hospital prices are pretty arbitrary. There's little rhyme or reason for how they set their prices. And hey, look, this is a medical service, you can't refuse you might have been exposed to rabies. So you're kind of a sitting duck, and they can basically charge whatever they want. The funny thing is when we looked into this we discovered that the price of the rabies medicine genetic got dropped from about seven thousand dollars a unit to about one thousand six hundred fifty dollars a unit just a month or two later. So that shows you how crazy it is. Oh, so this hospital started charging dramatically less for this shot shortly after Ginette was treated. Yes. And when we asked the hospital, they said, oh, well, we periodically adjust our. Prices. But I'd like to note that on January first this year hospitals had to suddenly reveal their prices, but according to a new federal regulation. So they knew that that may be too high seven thousand dollar price would be out in the public as of January first. So maybe they were trying to make adjustments before new year came. Oh, wow. So the hospitals were were trying not to look outrageous when they were actually required to start telling people what they were charging. Well, that's one theory. You know? So the price dropped about sixty percent. And can you imagine? If like, you went to buy a Prius one month, and it was thirty thousand dollars and the next month on the first of the month. It was suddenly ten thousand dollars. I mean that would be outrageous. But that's what happens in medical care all the time. I certainly couldn't imagine if I paid the thirty thousand dollars and then saw drop like the next day. What can you do? I mean, if you're bitten by an animal, and you go to the hospital, and you're desperate, and you don't know they're charging as much since for the moment. There's no kind of price drop guarantee in healthcare. I think what you need to do. First of all is protect your health. So you do need to go to the hospital you need rabies immunoglobulin. You should know that many public health departments will hand it out. So if it's during the week, you can check their first and then try and go to an in network hospital. So at least you're a better negotiating power is anything in exchange for Jeanette. Can she get some money back? The problem with healthcare is that once you've spent it's very hard to get money back. But her ensure is negotiating this. And I do hope that you know, they look at this price drop and say, hey, what gives we she shouldn't be responsible for that. Big.

So he broke the skin on my finger.

Yeah. Win homes. No big deal. I was in and out of there, really fast. And then the Bill came the total cost was forty eight thousand dollars. And I thought it was a joke. I just couldn't believe it. I had to be a mistake. That was what I was thinking. I sort of laughed and I was upset at the same time. Yeah. I couldn't believe it. I shot. It was forty eight thousand dollars. Parker says she eventually stopped by the hospital to get an itemized Bill, but they didn't drop the price. She had to pay three hundred and forty four dollars to cover her deductible. Then ten percent of the Bill. Parker says no one at the said anything about cost when she was there. If she had realized how much it would be.

"This is the fourth time Cabrera has released Miami blue butterflies as long key state park. And the first time she's releasing adults. She says Miami blues could thrive where people live as long as they have the plants where they lay eggs the plants that provide the nectar they eat and they are not regularly sprayed with insecticides for here. And now, I'm Nancy Klinger. Well, I'm sure it's not easy to hear this. If you live in the midwest, but the polar vortex might be a good thing for the region's forests because it could wipe out. Portion of the emerald ash bore here to explain is Lee Froehlich director of the university of Minnesota's center for forest ecology in Saint Paul Lee. Welcome nice to be with you. And first of all you're right there where the polar vortex is coming in. What is it? Like there at the moment. Well, there's kind of frizzy clouds. I'm not sure that the the true polar air is here yet because I would expect it to be clear, it's maybe nine or ten below zero. And we expect temperatures to fall throughout the day. Maybe hit somewhere around thirty below zero tonight. So for a lot of people that is not a good thing. It's going to be pretty uncomfortable and even dangerous for some. But you point out that it could actually be good news for dealing with an invasive species. Tell us about the emerald ash Borer. What is it? Yeah. The emerald ash Borer is an insect from Asia that in. In fess and kills ash trees, white ash, black cash and green ash are pretty abundant all across the northeastern United States. Our main all the way to Minnesota, and it was introduced into Michigan. I and quite a while ago at ten fifteen years ago, and it's been spreading in all directions from there. So it reached us several years ago here in the twin cities,.

"Once they were common all over, south, Florida. Now, they're only found on a few islands in the keys. Wwl RN's. Nancy Klinger found that biologists. Trying to bring them back biologists. Call the Miami blue the rest Butin of butterflies like the Russian mystic who survived numerous assassination attempts before he was eventually done in there. Hoping for a happier ending for the Miami. Blue by the early nineteen nineties only one colony existed on Key Biscayne, then Hurricane Andrew came through in nineteen Ninety-two, and it disappeared people thought they were extinct. Seven years later. Miami blues were spotted in a state park in the lower keys, then that colony disappeared, but the butterflies had been found again living on some wildlife refuge islands near key west come on. You got one more we go. I think. Oop. No. They're still wondering there. Hey. Wrong way. Joe these Miami blue butterflies were bred in a lab now, Kim Gable? A volunteer is coaxing them to try out life in the wild area. Go and think we got them all these are newborn butterflies, but they've had pretty adventurous lives. So far they started out in the lab at the university of Florida in Gainesville as caterpillars when they became pupa. They got shipped by FedEx to the keys the emerged butterflies and Sarah Steele Cabrera's office on big pine key. Then a car ride to long key state park. These guys are wanting to get in the sun Cabrera is a university of Florida graduate student who runs the Miami blue project in the keys. Oh, see. This one's already trying to make you see there curving its abdomen. And they haven't been in temperatures this warm yet in their short lives stuff. They're they're gonna go. They don't have long the Miami blues lifespan is about a month. That includes it's time as an egg a, Caterpillar and pupa. As an adult. Butterfly. It gets from a few days to a week. It's enough time for them to come out fly around find a mate lay eggs, and if they're lucky everything wants to eat them wasps lizards birds. You know, they're just a tasty little morsel for any any other animal, basically, accept it turns out for carpenter ants they feed off sugar liquid that Miami blue caterpillars produce, and they protect the future butterflies and their large and fairly aggressive ants. And if they have a Caterpillar that they're tending they do not leave that Caterpillar, and they're just walking back and forth patrolling and if they find another insect nearby. They will pick it up and throw it off the plant the rediscovery of the Miami blue was a huge deal for people who are fans of this insect. There's a butterfly watchers chapter named for them. It's members lobbied hard for state and federal protection. But it's not an especially impressive specimen. Go to blue butterfly most people think of like a blue Morphou like in Central America. So they get in their head that there are these huge giant, bright blue butterflies. The Miami blue is about the size of a thumbnail, and it doesn't even look blue unless it opens its wings. They're just little teeny guys that flit around and occasionally show you the blue they don't fly that far Taylor hunt is one of the researchers who returns to the release area to see if the butterflies have survived or better yet reproduced. Like, they're not gonna fly a half mile. They're not gonna fly quarter mile. You know, small butterflies they're not gonna fly in this win. They're going to stay localized to this area. My meat blues used to be found along large swaths of coastal south Florida from Sarasota through the keys up to Cape Canaveral. I have an old butterfly guide from nineteen fifty four and they were listed as common so common. Nobody really ever gave them a second thought. But the host plants where they lay their eggs are only found in coastal areas. The waterfronts that's a lots of. Development in the eighties nineties when they disappeared. What what they were telling us is that there just wasn't enough of their coastal habitat left. If there isn't healthy wild beach berm habitat, they're more than likely will not be Miami blue butterflies for now, the only while population left is on a few islands to the west of key west depending on the day between the hundreds or thousands when there should be millions of them across the state..
