Program Description

Tufts-Blue Cross Split Tufts Medical Center says it will stop accepting Blue Cross Blue Shield coverage after January 31st, due to a rift over doctors’ pay. The hospital says the state’s largest health insurer refuses to pay doctors at “a reasonable rate”—20 to 40 % less than other teaching hospitals. Guests: Dr. Paul Summergrad, Tufts Medical Center; Andrew Dreyfus, Blue Cross Blue Shield

Cape Cod Rental Tax State lawmakers are considering a proposal that would expand the 9.7 % tax on hotel, motel and inn rentals to include short-term and seasonal rentals of three months or less. Some towns predict they could double the amount they already get from room taxes by extending the tax to private residences. But others worry that the new taxes will drive away vacationers from an area that relies heavily on the tourism industry.

Guests: Rep. Cleon Turner, (D) Brewster; Barbara Sims, Rental Property Owner

Wicked Intentions Author Kevin Flynn discusses his new book on convicted killer Sheila LaBarre, Wicked Intentions. LaBarre was sentenced to life in prison last year for murdering two of her boyfriends in New Hampshire. Guests: Kevin Flynn, Author, Wicked Intentions
