7:03 am
nickname. hey, hey nothing but bobby three sticks keeping an eye on big donny fish lips. >> this morning's eye opener presented by toyota. let's go places. >> pretty great nickname. >> it is. a very interesting day on capitol hill. >> it was an historic day. >> historic is the word. welcome to "cbs this morning." i'm gayle king with tony dokoupil, anthony mason is off, but that's okay because vladimir duthiers is here. >> good to be here. >> anthony is having a good time wherever he is. we begin with this of course. puerto rico's embattled governor ricardo rossello is stepping down after 12 days of historic and at times violent protests. he announced his resignation in a facebook live video late last night and then the demonstrations turned to celebration in the streets. he will leave office next friday, august 2nd. >> this follows massive protests on the island set off by a leaked, derogatory group chat
7:04 am
that allegedly proved corruption inside the rossello administration. "ctm" lead national correspondent david begnaud has been covering the unrest from puerto rico since it began and was outside the governor's mansion when protesters learned the news. david, what was that moment like? >> reporter: tony, it wasn't just euphoric and energetic to sort of witness what was happening. it was historic. you realized as you stood in this very spot yesterday that 25 years from now people are going to talk about what happened when millennials stood on those barricades and said, he has to go. ricardo rossello became the poster boy for protesters who wanted to get rid of corruption in this administration but also represented decades of mismanagement that protesters had been targeting. let me tell you how it went last night. nobody knew when the message was coming. there were thousands of protesters here. all of a sudden the video starts playing and everyone went silent. watch this.
7:05 am
just before midnight, the crowd went quiet. protesters huddled around their phones and speakers, listening to governor ricardo rossello's message. after hours of delay rossello finally said the word these people were waiting 12 days to hear. i will be resigning. puerto rican rapper residente who has largely led the protests was in tears. >> after my son's birth this is the happiest moment of my life. this is incredible. i've been waiting for this moment. >> reporter: the governor'sasicy for many puerto ricans who for decades have protested corruption in this government and fought for change. >> this is a victory for the poor, for the maria victims, for everyone that has been let down by the government.
7:06 am
ricardo rossello, good-bye. >> we are people of dignity. our government took that away from us until tonight. >> reporter: celebrations spread throughout the city of san juan. crowds cheered, sang, set off fireworks. at one point people outside the governor's mansion even broke into the electric slide, which is so popular here. the people we talked to feel that rossello's resignation proves there is strength in numbers. >> i'm happy but we're not settling, you know, this is not about taking one corrupt person out. this is about changing the island for good. and this is starting today. >> reporter: some of the headlines people are waking up to this morning, puerto rico kicked him out. you will not make a fool out of us. listen, the governor is part of an ongoing investigation. even though he is leaving, his cell phone has been surrendered as part of the chat scandal and he is being investigated along
7:07 am
with 11 other people who were involved in the chat. the investigation is being conducted by the department of justice. the woman who runs the department of justice is next in line to be the governor of puerto rico. her name is wanda vazquez. as it stands right now, she will become the governor when ricardo rossello leaves in a week. i should tell you, one thing that stood out last night when we were here with the protesters is that for the f first time in long time when they heard the governor say i'm resigning, they felt heard, heard. by their own government. >> it shows you the power of the people, their voice. david, whatever happens next, we know you'll be on the ground to tell us about it. david begnaud in puerto rico. thank you. >> that's all anybody wants is to be heard. >> to be heard. >> yes. in all circumstances. >> the government you have placed in power to hear your voice. >> i want to find out how the electric slide became so popular in puerto rico. that could be an investigative piece for david next. >> it works in all circumstances, the electric slide. >> all right. david begnaud in puerto rico, thank you very much. in more than six hours of
7:08 am
historic testimony, robert critics, including president trump. the former special counsel appeared before two congressional committees yesterday. he mainly stuck to the script laid out in his written report. mueller said russian election interference remains a threat and emphasized the investigation did not exonerate the president of the united states. still, mr. trump declared victory. >> the democrats had nothing, and now they have less than nothing. and i think they're going to lose the 2020 election very big. >> all right. nancy cordes was at those hearings and joins us now from capitol hill. so, nancy, where do we go from here? >> reporter: well, democrats insist that they got what they needed out of the day, a chance to highlight all of the president's potential acts of obstruction of justice. but it does not appear these hearings prompted some new ground swell of support for impeachment, either here on the had bn hopi for ericanlic
7:09 am
>> this was an important, important, important hearing. >> reporter: democrats declared the day a success. republicans saw it differently. >> i think the bottom line is the democrats didn't like how he answered so they're trying to find a way to salvage something. >> reporter: a cautious former special counsel did not give democrats some of the impeachment ammunitionon they we looking for. >> we did not reach a determination as to whether the president committed a crime. >> reporter: but he did set the record straight. >> the president has repeatedly claimed that your report found there was no obstruction and that it completely and totally exonerated him. but that is not what your report said, is it? >> correct. that is not what the report said. >> reporter: republicans argued mueller's report left mr. trump under a cloud of suspicion, with no way to clear his name. >> why did we have all this investigation of president trump that the other side is talking about when you knew that you weren't going to prosecute him?
7:10 am
>> well, you don't know where the investigation is going to lie. >> donald trump is not above the law. he's not. but he damn sure shouldn't be below the law, which is where volume 2 of this report puts him. >> reporter: mueller was considered a reluctant witness. over the course of six hours, he offered one word answers, 176 times. >> yes. no. correct. >> reporter: but he was clear about the chances of more russian interference. >> did you find evidence to suggest they'll try to do this again? >> it wasn't a single attempt. they're doing it as we sit here. roic >> reporter: and defended his investigation against the president's attack. >> your investigation is not a witch hunt? >> it is not a witch hunt. >> the president wanted to fierp you becau fire you because you were investigating him for obstruction of justice isn't that correct? >> that is what it says in the report yes. i stand by the report. >> reporter: house speaker nancy pelosi called the day historic but wouldn't say if it nudged her closer to impeachment.
7:11 am
even after the hearings the president said he is completely exonerated. >> please. come on. come on. we want to have strongest possible case to make a decision as to what path we will go down. >> reporter: speaker pelosi added that democrats are going to continue to fight the president in the courts as their probes into his finances go on. late last night the house judiciary committee announced it is going to go to court today to enforce a subpoena against former white house counsel don mcgahn, who was a central figure in the mueller report. gayle? >> nancy, thank you very much. at the white house president trump mocked robert mueller's testimony and he called it a disaster. paula, before you get to that, i have to say you had a very tense exchange with the president yesterday. a lot of people watched it live on cbsn. i was wondering what was going through your mind. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. i asked the president about former special counsel mueller's
7:12 am
statement that the president still could face criminal charges once he leaves office. the president became quickly very agitated. he insisted that mueller never said that and even suggested that mueller had recanted. but mueller did say this twice and never took it back. >> so we had a very good day today. >> reporter: president trump seemed pleased with the mueller hearing. >> when you ask that question you're untruthful. >> reporter: but quickly turned defensive when cbs news mentioned one of mueller's few definitive statements. mueller said you could be charged once you leave office. >> no he didn't say that. again, you're fake news and you're right at the top of the list also. let me just tell you. >> that is what he said. he said that, sir. that is what he said. >> read his correction. read his correction. >> reporter: the president's claim that he couldn't be charged was wrong. mueller did not correct this statement. >> could you charge the president with a crime after he left office? >> yes. >> you believe that he committed -- you could charge the president of the united states with obstruction of justice after he left office.
7:13 am
>> yes. >> reporter: president trump believes mueller's testimony may even help him get re-elected. >> the democrats thought they could win an election like this. i think they hurt themselves very badly for 2020. >> reporter: still, the hearing appeared to have gotten under the president's skin. >> i think robert mueller did a horrible job both today and with respect to the investigation. >> reporter: though he has had a different take in the past. >> it was the most thorough investigation probably in the history of our country. >> reporter: cbs news has learned the president happily made calls to his friends after the hearing. >> this case is closed. >> reporter: the president's lawyer jay sekulow previewed the white house argument going forward. >> the reality is that at the end of this the needle has not been moved in favor of any kind of action by the house democrats here. >> reporter: the president's legal team insists this case is closed but yesterday mueller revealed that there are still ongoing counterintelligence
7:14 am
investigations into russian interference. yesterday i spoke with former deputy fbi director andrew mccabe about that. >> i was surprised that he revealed the fact that there was a significant element from the counterintelligence division at fbi who were essentially embedded with the special counsel team and there for the purpose of exchanging counterintelligence information both directions. it certainly makes sense that team would continue to investigate any lingering counterintelligence concerns around the president or anyone in his administration. >> reporter: mccabe was fired by attorney general jeff sessions last year for lacking candor during an internal investigation. since, he has been very critical of the president and the president of him. tony? >> paula reid for us at the white house, thank you very much. let's get to chief washington correspondent major garrett joining us from our washington bureau. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. >> at times bob mueller seemed to frustrate members of both parties so i wonder, did either
7:15 am
side get what they were looking for in this testimony? >> reporter: for the democrats the priority was to try to establish bit by bit, fact by fact, in a methodical sometimes plodding way but nevertheless creating a wide public record that can be reviewed and gone back to over and over again about actions the president took that sound obstructive but might not be legally but certainly are outside the bounds of what the normal conduct of an american president is. and also go through methodically, as well, all of the various contacts during the campaign between people closeo the president and russians. contact at the time denied but later established through the special counsel's report. that body of work, democrats believe, hadn't really been presented to the public in this sort of forum. that was their goal and in large measure on the substance of that they achieved that. republicans wanted to portray robert mueller as a not very strong witness, someone unfamiliar with some of the underlying details of the
7:16 am
report, and unfamiliar with some of the allegations of bias within the investigation, itself, or in its origins. on that score republicans believe they achieved success. >> major, mueller made it very clear russian interference is certainly not over. do you think or do you get the sense this administration is taking that very seriously? >> reporter: it's hard to get that impression, gayle, from the public utterances of the president but there are those within the administration who say this is a priority, though the president doesn't make it sound that way when he talks about it or engagesadir putin, russian government. it is clear every time that robert mueller is given the opportunity he says to america, this is a serious issue. it will happen again. and it's worth noting, our own partisan divisions, which lead us recently to believe the worst about each other help the russians achieve their goal, which is to create division in america and create a sense that our own system isn't as strong as it should be. we helped the russians even though we might not intend to.
7:17 am
>> all right. pay attention to that. thank you very much, major. north korea test fired two short-range missiles overnight that experts do believe could carry nuclear weapons. the show of force from dictator kim jong un comes as president trump tries to denuclearize that country. ramey inocencio is tracking the developments from beijing. rame ramy, how do you think this will affect the negotiations? >> this is the third short range missile test this year and just a short time since pyongyang threatened to resume tests if the u.s. didn't cancel upcoming military exercises. one threw about 260 miles and the other flew 240 miles. officials say they were fired from mobile launchers which makes them more difficult to detect. analysts tell cbs news they believe both were kn-23 missiles the same missiles tested back in
7:18 am
may. they are small and tough to follow and destroy. earlier this week kim jong un was photographed inspecting a new submarine showing off the military developments and both incidents could complicate the relationship between president trump and kim jong un after they met at the dmz in june to jump-start talks. another sign talks could stay stalled north korea's foreign minister is reportedly now not attending a regional security summit next month where he was expected to meet the u.s. secretary of state mike pompeo. vlad? >> ramy, thank you very much. the american rapper a$sap rocky was charged overnight with assault in a case that has gained worldwide attention including from president trump. the 30-year-old from new york has been detained in sweden since july 3rd and will remain behind bars until his trial. it is scheduled to start on tuesday. rocky and two of his associates were involved in a street brawl in stockholm. the two men arrested with him have also been charged with assault. rocky claims he acted in self-defense. >> certainly more to that story. a growing link between a specific type of breast implant

7:32 am
why is this recall taking place right now? >> the fda says the risk of lymphoma with these implants is six times greater than others manufactured in the u.s. women have been pushing the fda to pay attention for some time, but even though textured implants have been pulled in other countries, only now is the u.s. getting up to speed. >> had we noun of the risk, we never would have opted to have an implant. >> lori da dario had already beaten breast cancer and then two years after getting implants during reconstruction turf surgery, her right breast grew three times its size. >> the swelling was so rapid and so pronounced that i just knew it wasn't normal. >> reporter: she underwent a battery of tests. the results, cancer, which devependert implants. >> that was total shock. and even now sometimes i go, how
7:33 am
can that be. >> reporter: daddario's implants were manufactured by the company mentor. she's one of a growing num of women being diagnosed with a rare disease known as. they link them to significant patient harm including dechlkt the agency says of 573 lymphoma cases, 481 are attributed to allergan implants and the fda also reports that at least 12 of 33 patients who died had allergan implants. allergan told us its voluntarily recalling its biosell implants and tissue expanders worldwide as a precaution. >> it's one of the series that irritates and surrounds the issue? >> that's one of the theorys. >> because it's rough. >> that's right.
7:34 am
>> reporter: in march we spoke with dr. elisabeth potter who refused even then to use any textured implants. >> i won't use them. in our office we say it wouldn't pass the sister test. if you're not going to give it to your sister, you wouldn't give it to patients. >> that's correct. >> reporter: she said the recall does not go far enough. >> one person with this lymphoma is one too many. >> the fda is not recommends that women without symptoms remove the implants because of potter tells us many patients want them out. she has removed them so far for 35 women. mentor stands by its textured implants and says the cancer is rare with its implants. >> but one is too many. i love the sister test that she was talking about. so for women who have the textured implants or maybe you have implants and you don't know what kind you have, what should

you do? >> really doctors say monitor for symptoms f you have swelling, pain, something unusual, unexplained, go to your doctor and ask questions. you can ask questions about whether they might look into it or not. >> one case is too many. we appreciate it. coming up, a mysterious and unprecedent release, coral reefs. we take you under water with how scientists are trying to save a natural treasure. and if you're on the go, listen to today's podcast in less than 20 minutes. you're watching "cbs this morning." 20 minutes is a dell. let's do it.

7:39 am
this morning in our "earth matters" series, a devastating disease isweep be scientists don't know exactly what this disease is. it has already infected about half of the coral species in the region. mark phillips recently flew to the tortugas national park in mexico to join a group of scientists racing against time
7:40 am
to save the coral. good morning, mark. >> reporter: good morning from the dry tortugas. 70 miles west of the west of florida. plenty of good reasons for diving off the florida coast, but these divers aren't just here to have fun on the coral reefs. they're here to try to save them. something is killing the coral that grows along florida's coast. these divers are among a last-tich effort to save them. >> this december is unprecedented. >> reporter: says fisheries biologist meghan johnson because of the speed with which the disease attacks and kills about half the coral species on florida's reefs. unprecedented because the pandemic has lasted five years so far, when most reef infections last a year or so. and unprecedented because marine scientists say the coral is already threatened by warming ocean temperatures and so is more vulnerable to whatever this mystery disease is.
7:41 am
>> what do we know about it? why is it doing this? >> it's an infectious, water-born disease. we don't know how it started, where it originated from. we know it's traveling at a pretty fast rate down the reef track. >> the bug, or whatever it is, was first discovered off miami in 2014 and has been on a relentless, lethal march north and south ever since. in just five years, this disease has traveled from north of palm beach, 350 miles to key west and it's still moving. but it hasn't hit the relatively pristine waters of the dry tortugas yet and so a bold rescue effort is under way. scientists from noaa, florida wildlife and the university of miami have begun to do what normally is the worst thing you can do on a reef. they've been chipping off althyf ase gets toit.'ve en colctingt
7:42 am
search vessel,here it's s/2 centimeters. >> they've been storing it in vats, coral condos they call them, saved so that when, if the disease passes, the coral can be replanted and, it's hoped, the reef system can be restored. maybe. >> these will serve as the brood population to then make more babies. >> reporter: once, flippers crossed -- >> yeah. >> reporter: once the disease has passed through and is gone. >> yes. even to do this process, we're looking at another two to five years. >> this is a long-term -- >> this is a long journey. >> reporter: a journey whose next stop is at the university of miami and then other facilities across the soh, to wait. >> we just had the warmest month on record here in miami, florida. not just air temperatures, but water temperatures as well. and that was june 2019. so the fact that we're breaking
7:43 am

7:50 am
one child in the study had 100 times more weed killer in their system than their parent. the product's manufacturer questioned the small size of the sample and said the results are far below exposure limits set by safety officials. in the past, it has also asserted that glyphosate does not cause cancer. we talked to dr. david agis who disagreed with that as well. >> world health organization said it's probably carcinogenic threat in humans. >> if you ever did laundry for a kid, grass stains are an issue. if it's going to affect somebody, it would affect a kid rolling around in the grass. >> and a smaller bodies that we have as adults. a toddler, speaking of smaller bodies, was injured at atlanta's main airport. the frightening moment the child moved on to the moving conveyor belt at jackson hartsfield national. the mother said she look add way

good morning to our viewers in the west. it's thursday, july 25, 2019. welcome back to "cbs this morning." democrats are pushing ahead with their investigations of president trump in the wake of robert mueller's historic testimony. we'll talk to a key democrat in the senate about whether possible impeachment should be on the table. what rapper and activist meek mill told gayle about living his dreams and inspiring others. and meet a couple inspiring hope and changing lives in a once struggling community. first, here's today's "eye opener" at 8:00. >> puerto rico's embattled governor ricardo rosello stepping down after 12 days of histor protegoin talk about wha happened when millennials stood on the bare said and said he has to democrats insist they got a chance to highlight the president's potential acts of obstruction of justice. >> the president's legal team insists the case is closed, but
8:01 am
yesterday mueller revealed that there are still ongoing counter-intelligence investigations into russian interference. >> republicans wanted to portray robert mueller as a not very strong witness, unfamiliar with the underlying details in the report. >> this is north korea's third short-range missile test this year, restarting long-range tests if the u.s. and south korea didn't cancel upcoming military exercises. mike turner tried to nail mueller. powe e the have the president. >> you have no more power to declare him exonerated than you have the power to declare him anderson cooper. >> please don't declare donald trump anderson cooper. i really don't want that image in my mind, and i'm being told they've already made it. >> announcer: this morning's "eye opener" is presented by toyota. let's go places. some of these clever lines from lawmakers. i am sure they look good on paper. they don't always age well.
8:02 am
>> not a mash up i ever thought of. >> no. they got the anderson cooper black t-shirt. >> he looks good in a black t-shirt. i'm gayle king with tony dokoupil. anthony mason is off, someplace nice we hope. vladimir duthiers is here. we have everything covered. he is from our streaming network, cbsn. >> we are going to start with this. breaking news. jeffery epstein was taken to the infirmary after found injured in his new york city jail cell. law enforcement is investigating. mola lenghi has this breaking story. what happened? >> gayle, as you mentioned, we learned that jeffery epstein was found injured on the floor of his jail cell. according to a source, officials believe epstein attempted suicide earlier this week. he was found on the floor crying, semi lucid and depressed, we are told. he was treated in the infirmary and his injuries do not appear to be life-threatening. the financier is being held at
8:03 am
the metropolitan correctional center in new york city where he was already isolated on suicide watch when the incident occurred earlier this week. investigators are checking internal cameras to learn more, as much as they can. epstein was arrested earlier this month as you remember, on sex trafficking and conspiracy charges for allegedly sexually abusing underage girls from 2002 to 2005. epstein pleaded not guilty, but was denied bail because of his overseas connections, his extra ordinary wealth and risk to the public. he pled guilty to soliciting a minor for prostitution in florida back in 2008, and although he served 13 months he avoided a potentially longer jail sentence after a controversial plea deal that many criticize as too lenient. >> all right. you have been covering the story from the beginning. we will look for your reporting throughout the week. thank you. former special counsel robert mueller's testimony had lawmakers in both parties claiming victory. as promised he pointed to his
8:04 am
written report to answer many questions yesterday and he was frequently concise. he gave one-word responses 176 times. mueller emphasized his investigation did not exonerate president trump of potential crimes, including obstruction. he said repeatedly that justice department guidelines prevent a sitting president from being indicted but that does not mean he wouldn't have been charged otherwise. >> president trump criticized mueller testimony and claimed victory. >> the performance was obviously not very good. he had a lot of problems. but what he showed more than anything else is that this whole thing has been three years of embarrassment and waste of time for our country. >> after the hearing house speaker nancy pelosi stood firm on her belief that democrats should fight the president in court and not through impeachment. virginia democratic senator mark warner is the vice chairman of the senate intelligence
8:05 am
committee. they are investigating russian interference in the 2016 election. he joins us in his first tv interview since the mueller hearing. good morning. >> good morning. >> you have not been among the members of your party calling for an impeachment inquiry. did what you saw and heard yesterday change the calculation for you? >> it didn't change the calculation. i am going to leave that to speaker pelosi. e been focused is the point that bob mueller made repeatedly yesterday. not only did russia attack us in 2016, but they will be back in 2020. candidly, what i'm amazed at, i got no interest in relitigating 2016, i am interested in making sure that we have appropriate protections in place in 2020. let's make sure there is a law that saysf a fo government tries trv fbi. let's make sure every ballot that's cast in 2020 has a paper ballot backup. let's make sure we take bishop
8:06 am
legislation, so if a foreign government intervenes, we slap sanctions on them. let's make sure that we have got some rules of the road on social media so that people can know when they are hearing from a human being versus a bot when we have the same kind of political disclosure for political ads on the web that we have on tv. this is fairly common sense bipartisan stuff, and my hope would be that leader mcconnell and this white house would agree to bring this kind of legislation to the floor. >> we shall see. senator, president trump called mueller's testimony a disaster for the democrats yesterday. so a couple of things. i want to know what you thought about his testimony yesterday, and what did the democratic party accomplish, if anything, out of these hearings? >> candidly, i was working yesterday and only got a chance to catch bits and pieces of the testimony. >> the bits and pieces you saw, what did you think? >> well, he told us beforehand he was going to stick to the script, that he was not going to
8:07 am
go outside the four corners of the report. he did that. i think anyone who expected bombshells on either side didn't get it, but i keep coming back to what i thought was, you know, not in the relitigating of 2016, but in how we protect ourselves. the fact that he said not only are russians coming back to attack, but they are literally attacking us each and every day. i would hope that every american, i don't care where you fall on the partisan scale, would take that as a warning and recognize that same message is coming out of donald trump's own director of the fbi, chris wray. it's coming out of trump's director of national intelligence, dan coats. this ought to be a national security issue. what bothers me is this p president is so obsessed about his own personal well being that he dismisses this threat and, frankly, when he goes to a g20 meeting and makes light of the issue with vladimir putin, he does not make our nation safer. >> senator, speaking about the
8:08 am
president there, you said earlier this year that there were enormous amounts of evidence of a conspiracy between the trump campaign and russia. robert mueller reiterated again yesterday that he did not find that. so given your earlier comments and given what's in the report, do you owe the president an apology? >> we are still finishing our counter-intelligence investigation. we still have not gotten access to literally reams of counter-intelligence evidence. i believe what mr. mueller said yesterday, what was reported to me was he said they didn't even look at collusion because collusion is not a legal terminology. they did say there were well over 100 contacts between russians and individuals in the trump campaign, and as somebody who has been around certain presidential campaigns in the past, that's just not normal. >> senator, with all due respect, the report says that collusion and conspiracy are functionally synonymous and conspiracy was not established by the evidence.
8:09 am
>> i'm not here to try to relitigate mueller's conclusions. i am here to make sure that we are safe in 2020. unless we pass additional legislation, unless this white house and mitch mcconnell allows these bills to come to the floor, bills that would get 75, 80 votes, we are not doing all we can to protect our process. >> the latest polls on cbs shows most americans are ready, they have had it up to here with the mueller report. do you agree, yes or no? >> listen, i have been on this for the last couple of years. our investigation has to finish. i think moving on from whether we relitigate 2016 is one iss. sure we are safe in 2020, i think, gayle, i have seen the same polls who the vast majority of americans agree the russians intervened. and when you have got donald trump's own fbi director of national intelligence and now bob mueller continuing to say they will be back and they are attacking us on a day-to-day
8:10 am
basis, i would think -- i would be anxious to hear from any of my colleagues why they wouldn't support the kind of common sense plans and legislation i outlined in the interview. >> thank you for taking the time. >> thank you. a man on kidney dialysis received a bill for more than half a million dollars for 14 weeks of treatment. yikes. and we will ale take a look at what went way wrong there and how you can avoid unwanted a little cooler today but i don't think that should be the headline. it will still be hot. these bring us down above average. it was so hot yesterday that the 102 that we did yesterday in concord turned in 296. it is better but still hot. we have a couple of days where we will experience noticeable warrants, particularly on saturday when the heat will >> and we will be up to 100 for

$88 billion to pay medical bills, unbelievable. we partnered with kaiser health news and npr on their "bill of the month" series which uncovers shocking medical bills. the cost includes dialysis for sovereign val entiev. he calls himself sov for short. he said there were no clinics in montana. the company disputes this based on their records. >> sovereign received a bill for more than $540,000 for 14 weeks of care. >> the doctor that i saw said you will do dialysis or you'll die. >> our balance is up to more than $500,000. to me that's clearly so wrong it seems unethical. >> it was shocking. it was overwhelming. you know, it can be distressing to get bills, but it was so high it was like how could this possibly be.
8:18 am
>> well, in a statement, the insurance company allegiance said, quote, the main issue here seems to be a misunderstanding about the availability and location of in-work dialysis centers in montana. allegiance also made special arrangements for an in-network option in missoula. the cupped pay more than $16,000 but still owes more than $524,000. the editor in chief elisabeth rosenthal joins us now. good to see yu. >> good to see you. >> what i read is this could have happened to anybody. what could the valentines have do done differently? >> jessica works with insurance. this is a case of the insurer and insured. it's the poor valentines who are left with the bill. you can as she did look for a
8:19 am
provider in network. always a first step and smart. she went to the directory, which was hugely -- as we know, many directories are inaccurate, confusing, it's hard to find, your loved one is sick, and there was apparently no one in-network. she checked with a representative from the insurer to confirm that and she even went to the insurance commissioner to say, hey, i looked. there's no one in-network. she did a whole lot of stuff in a setting of a very serious life crisis for her husband. you know, when we fall into one of those kind of loopholes or pitfalls, boy, the cost can be $500,000, and no one seems to kind of feel the human reaction of, hey, you know, she tried really hard, and so we're going to settle this, the insurer and provider. they're working now to settle it, but they're still in the thick of a big disagreement. as you said, she's been offered,
8:20 am
well, maybe we'll cut the bill in half. great. that's still $250,000, right? that doesn't seem to work. >> they're still working on it. we have a comment from the kidney dialysis center, they say they're working directly with the patient to immediately resolve this situation. so what should their next step be, and ultimately will they have to pay this bill? >> i really hope they won't. hopefully since there's been press coverage and we see this over and over again, once there's press coverage, it's over, but that's not the solution for everyone. >> how does a bill get so high? >> it's pretty shocking. medicare pays for most kidney dialysis in this country. they pay about $235 a session. the sovereigns paid more than $16,000. the list price is 50 times
8:21 am
higher than medicare would pay. most will negotiate it down. >> what's a fair price. >> is that a fair price? >> that's the problem. the sky's the limit. the price of a procedure is whatever the market will bear, and if you're stuck, it will bear a lot. one option for anyone stuck in this dilemma is to find out what medicare will pay. okay, we'll pay two or three times that and work that out. >> all right. >> that seems fair to all involved. >> thank you, doctor. i hope they do work it out. ahead, how japan turned recycling into an olympic event. you're watching "cbs this morning." we thank you for that. we'll be right back. so when you go out, you cash in. what's in your wallet? ♪ i was told to begin my aspirin regimen, blem. and i just didn't listen. until i almost lost my life. my doctors again ordered me to take aspirin,
