The National Association of Health Underwriters
Representing 20,000+ members across the nation, NAHU is the only national association working solely on behalf of individual health insurance agents today.

Why Join NAHU?
Healthy insurance market = Healthy Americans
• NAHU believes in the insurance market. Maintaining a healthy marketplace for insurance in all 50 states is our number 1 mission. After all, a healthy insurance market is the best way to maintain the health of all Americans.
Your voice in Washington
• Each year, NAHU spends over $1,000,000 to present your interests before Congress and regulatory agencies.
• NAHU holds leadership positions in over a dozen D.C.-based health-care coalitions lobbying Congress on pertinent issues.
• NAHU employs an outstanding team of experienced professionals to ensure your needs come first.
• NAHU’s Grassroots Network targets federal and state legislators with information and lobbying materials in advance of significant legislative votes.
When NAHU Talks, Congress Listens
• NAHU is regarded by many of Washington’s power brokers as the definitive source on the health insurance industry.
• NAHU was privileged to have newly elected President Bush select a staff member to work on his "transition team."
• HUPAC is the political action committee of the National Association of Health Underwriters (NAHU). It is the expression of our First Amendment rights to free speech and association guaranteed under the Constitution. Such political expression has become far more than a useful option for professionals in a heavily regulated business like the health insurance industry. It has become a necessity.
• HUPAC is registered with the Federal Election Commission. Since NAHU and similar organizations are prohibited from making political contributions, HUPAC was created to allow contributors to combine their financial support to a candidate to achieve maximum effect.
