About Us - Desert Cities Association Of Health Underwriters

About Us

The Desert Cities Association of Health Underwriters (DCAHU) was officially formed as a separate local chapter of NAHU in 2009 by a dedicated group of professionals determined to bring the benefits of the industry's premier agents' trade association to the health insurance agents and brokers in the low desert and the Coachella Valley, as well as all of Riverside County. However, since 1998, there has been a local desert group of Health Underwriters functioning as a satellite chapter of IEAHU (Inland Empire AHU) , with its own board of directors and local meetings and events in the Coachella Valley. And in 2009, this dedicated group of health insurance and brokers evolved into is own desert chapter of NAHU.

DCAHU now boasts a membership of some 70 agents, brokers, and industry representatives. DCAHU is one of 15 local chapters in the state of California, and across the nation. There is a CA state chapter - CAHU (California Association of Health Underwriters), and all local and state chapters in the country comprise the membership in our national organization - NAHU (National Association of Health Underwriters). NAHU has over 20,000 members and was formed back in 1930! Thus all DCAHU members are also members of CAHU and NAHU automatically.
