Medicare to pay for FDA approved handgun for the handicapped?

Medicare to pay for FDA approved handgun?  It’s possible, if a doctor can right a prescription than it may be billable to a medical insurance provider, only time will tell.

FDA TO APPROVE A HANDGUN FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES

A “Handgun for the Handicapped”

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has accepted a conceptual, ergonomic 9mm handgun — designed for people crippled by arthritis, muscular dystrophy, or similar conditions that render them too weak to operate normal handguns — as a Class 1 Medical Device.

The single-shot gun, dubbed the Palm Pistol, is “an adaptive tool that allows someone otherwise incapable of handling a revolver or semiautomatic weapon to operate one,” said Matthew Carmel of Constitution Arms, the New Jersey-based company developing the gun.

Thanks to the gun’s designation as a medical device, doctors could eventually write prescriptions for it and then be reimbursed by Medicare.

The Palm Pistol is a single-shot firearm designed for the elderly or disabled who may lack the manual dexterity or strength to fire a regular gun in moments of self-defense. The firing pin is released by pressing a button with the thumb rather than the index finger.
