Fitzpatrick Protects Pre-Existing Condition Safeguards

Washington, DC—Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick (PA-08) today signed onto the Maintaining Protections for Patients with Pre-Existing Conditions Act of 2018 [H.R.6898], which would maintain protections for individuals with pre-existing conditions.
