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.

Currently, twenty states are filing a lawsuit in federal court arguing that the entirety of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) is unconstitutional. If these suits succeed, there is a risk that patients with pre-existing conditions would be stripped of certain protections afforded by the ACA.

BREAKING: Fitzpatrick, House Send ‘Right to Try’ to President

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Right to Try Legislation passed the House Tuesday evening with a bipartisan vote of 250-169. The bill – The Trickett Wendler, Frank Mongiello, Jordan McLinn, and Matthew Bellina Right to Try Act [S.204], a Senate companion bill to Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick’s Right to Try legislation, follows months of legislative efforts and improves access to experimental treatments for patients with terminal illnesses. The bill now awaits the President’s signature.
