Fitzpatrick Fights for Men’s Health


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. Had this recommendation been accepted, tens of thousands of men over 50 who rely on Medicare coverage would have been denied blood tests. “Today’s announcement is an important victory for men’s health ...

Fitzpatrick Responds to Administration’s Fiduciary Rule
WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick (PA-8), a member of the House Financial Services Committee, released the following statement regarding the Department of Labor’s release of its finalized fiduciary rule: “While I share the Administration’s concerns to protect retirees and individuals planning for their retirement, I have serious concerns that this rule will have the unintended consequence of placing quality and affordable financial advice out of reach for the millions of American families that need it most. It is important that elected officials carefully review this new rule to ensure investors are receiving the best advice and small businesses are spending more time advising their customers rather than complying with new Washington mandated regulations.” Background During five hearings and a markup on the proposed rule, the Financial Services Committee learned: The supposed basis of the Department of Labor’s proposal -- that investors are losing $17 billion a
Fitzpatrick Questions FDA About Essure Reporting
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick (PA-8) sent the following letter to the Food and Drug Administration Tuesday regarding dramatic changes in the reporting of adverse events caused by the medical device Essure: Dear Dr. Shuren, Information has been brought to my attention that shows a dramatic change in how Adverse Event Reports relating to the permanent sterilization device Essure were submitted to the FDA coinciding with the agency’s announcement that it was reviewing the safety of the device. As you know, when a manufacturer submits an Adverse Event Report to the FDA one of the data fields to be filled is “Reporter Occupation.” Examples of how that field can be coded by the manufacturer include “Physician,” “Health Professional,” “Nurse,” “Pharmacist,” “Paramedic,” “Risk Manager,” and “Other.” As it relates to Essure, from January 2002 through June 2015, the manufacturer of the device submitted nearly 600 Adverse Event Reports in whic
Fitzpatrick Letter to Vice President Urges Power Morcellator Review in ‘Cancer Moonshot’ Initiative
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick (PA-8) Wednesday called on Vice President Joseph Biden to take action on reforming medical device review and monitoring processes as part of the Administration’s “Cancer Moonshot” initiative – specifically highlighting power morcellators.  “As part of the Cancer Moonshot, we have the chance to protect others from the harm caused by dangerous medical devices. In 2016 there will be an estimated 595,690 cancer deaths in the United States. We must guard against unsafe medical devices from contributing to those staggering statistics,” wrote Fitzpatrick. “While supporting the development of new devices to target cancer, we must ensure that the FDA is able to review, monitor, and quickly take action should those devices do harm. Unfortunately, we are too late for many women who, because of morcellation, were not given a fair chance to fight and beat their cancer. But we have a chance to protect others.” The complete letter is
Fitzpatrick Statement on Release of FDA’s Essure Review
LANGHORNE, PA – Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick (PA-8) released the following statement Monday regarding the announcement of the Food and Drug Administration’s five-month review of the permanent sterilization device Essure: “It’s unbelievable that it took the FDA since September to make just two recommendations with no enforcement measures and ask the manufacturer to perform another study while leaving Essure on the market. Frankly, I’d contend that the 25,000 women harmed by Essure are the postmarket study that FDA is ordering. It’s been done. The evidence is all there: Tens of thousands of injured women and hundreds of fetal deaths. As my constituent, Dr. Amy Reed, a victim of unsafe devices herself, testified at the FDA in September, ‘[w]e don’t need to hurt any more women.’ If the FDA is going to order another study, then at minimum they should take Essure off the market during that time. A 60 day comment period and another study while this device remains on that mar
