In November 2011, Congressman Fitzpatrick joined a bipartisan group of representatives in expressing his disapproval to Health & Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius over a recommendation made by the United States Preventive Task Force (USPTF) on October 7, 2011. The USPTF had recommended that healthy men should not receive a blood test to screen for prostate cancer.

Fitzpatrick Questions DHS Sec. on Border Security, Opioid Epidemic
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick (PA-08) questioned Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly Tuesday on a number of issues, including the security of our nation’s borders and the connection between border control and combating Pennsylvania’s opioid epidemic. The exchange, part of the House Committee on Homeland Security hearing entitled ‘Ending the Crisis: America's Borders and the Path to Security,’ focused on border security and law enforcement efforts aimed at preventing the flow of illicit drugs in the United States. “There is no doubt that our nation’s porous border leaves us vulnerable to illegal immigration and infiltration by terror groups, but it also allows for the flood of illegal drugs into our country. As we continue to battle the challenges posed to our community by the opioid epidemic, it is vital that we work to identify and address the proliferation of these substances,” said Fitzpatrick following the hearing.  “Today’s
Fitzpatrick, Biggs Introduce ‘Right to Try’ Legislation
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressmen Brian Fitzpatrick (PA-08) and Andy Biggs (AZ-05) introduced the Right to Try Act of 2017 Monday, legislation which would ensure that terminally ill patients, together with their physicians, and pharmaceutical manufacturers are allowed to administer investigational treatments where no alternative exists. The bill is a companion to Senate legislation (S. 204) introduced by Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) in January. “Each day, families across the country receive the devastating news of a terminal diagnosis. Even with the amazing work done in American medical research and development, for too many, access to these potentially lifesaving treatments will come too late, or not at all. The Right to Try Act opens the opportunity to trial-stage care and establishes the freedom for patients and their doctors to try therapies where the benefits far outweigh the risks,” said Fitzpatrick. “Americans – our constituents – should have every opportunity to fight for

The report, commissioned in 2015 by Slaughter and former Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick, confirms serious gaps in the FDA’s device reporting process, including: FDA identified significant deviations from medical device reporting requirements at certain user facilities – including the failure to establish and maintain medical device reporting files. Regarding adverse events specific to power morcellators, the Director of the FDA’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health noted that “while these events appeared to be the kind that would have fallen under the agency’s medical device reporting re
Fitzpatrick Seeks Constituent Input on Healthcare Reform
LANGHORNE, PA – Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick (PA-08) Tuesday announced the start of series of sit-down meetings and listening events with Bucks and Montgomery county physicians, experts and patients focused on healthcare reform. “In Washington, I serve as an independent voice for this community, and being that voice starts with taking the time to listen,” said Fitzpatrick. “The American people deserve elected officials who are willing to acknowledge the fact that increasing access to affordable and reliable healthcare is a goal that transcends political ideology. Only then can we proceed in fixing our healthcare system in a responsible, deliberate manner that ensures both the continuity of coverage and patient protection provisions.” “Congress should focus on opportunities to make coverage more affordable and accessible to all Americans.  It is essential that gains in the number of Americans with health insurance coverage be maintained,” said Marilyn Heine, MD who
