• Can Opossums Save Medicare?

    March 7, 2011 11:32 pm 15 comments

    After decades of Medicare benefit erosion Doctors are turning away Medicare patients in favor of self paying or more adequately insured patients. Our nation’s elderly, have supped on the teat of medical service animals like dogs and those hov-a-rounds everyone has these days to the point the system is unable to pay for a visit to the doctor.

    What is needed is an alternative to the smelly dog service animal for the blind, hearing impaired or those in danger of seizures. As our friend Pearl illustrates in the video below, opossums are easily obtained and have body temperatures too low to incubate the rabies virus!

    Take a look and see if you agree that opossums could be the savior of Medicare for the many elderly citizens that depend on it.
