Men's Health Network Calls on Congress to Complete President Obama's Promise on Health Care Reform
Date:12/15/2009

uld the general population receive services inferior to those offered to Medicare recipients, such as the tests in the "Welcome to Medicare" physical?

Prostate cancer testing has been supported by a resolution of the Democratic National Committee in September 2009 and by President Obama in a town hall meeting and again in a Weekly Address on August 15. President Obama said that he would "require insurance companies to cover routine checkups and preventive care" so that "diseases like breast cancer and prostate cancer" can be detected early.

While Senator Mikulski's amendment has passed to ensure protections for women's preventive services, no such amendment is being proposed to ensure that men received the same protections for prostate or other screenings.

"We call on Congress to complete President Obama's promise to provide prostate screening in the health reform bill in addition to the breast cancer screening recently added," stated Scott Williams, VP for Men's Health Network.

Men's Health Network (www.menshealthnetwork.org), a national non-profit organization, reaches men and their families where they live, work, play, and pray.
