Florida Roundup: Into Florida's Health Care Costs And East Coast Railway Police

Stuart Miles

On the Florida Roundup, a WLRN-Miami Herald investigation finds hundreds of arrests by the Florida East Coast Railway Police are for pedestrians illegally crossing train tracks in Miami-Dade County, mostly at one spot. Often the charges are thrown out of court but kept on the record.

Floridians trying to find costs to health care services find it complex, confusing and secret. Miami Herald and WLRN reporters explored price transparency is its Power of Price series. We find out why one hospital CEO won’t release what insurance companies pay his facility.

Also, we discuss the changing rules for Florida’s Bright Futures college scholarships.

Our host Tom Hudson is joined by journalists Amy Driscoll, Daniel Chang, David Ovalle, Jacqueline Charles and Michelle Kaufman of the Miami Herald, Wilson Sayre, John O'Connor, Tim Padgett and Sammy Mack from WLRN.
