06/07/16 - Tuesday’s Topical Currents looks at WLRN’s PriceCheck project . . .  a community-created guide to health care costs.

Patients can go to the WLRN website and enter medical bill or insurance company “explanation of benefit” details.  An easily accessed data-base is thus developed, which shows an assortment of procedure prices.

We’ll learn more about PriceCheck from WLRN/Miami Herald health care policy reporter Sammy Mack.

That’s Topical Currents . . . Tuesday, at 1pm.

WLRN Radio's Joseph Cooper says producing and hosting Topical Currents is the most rewarding experience of his long radio career, which began at the University of Missouri School of Journalism in the 1970s.
Polly works as a producer with The Sunshine Economy. She has previously worked with DoubleTake Documentary Institute and Magazine, The Sally Jessy Raphael Show and ABC Talk Radio Networks.
Richard Ives came to WLRN in September 2000 to begin a new career in radio. Born in Fort Lauderdale, his family moved to Long Island, New York, where he grew up. After graduation from college and an unsatisfying stint in a job that, as he puts it, "paid the bills but for which I had no passion" he found himself contemplating a midlife career change after being laid-off.
