Preserving the Role of the Professional Agent:
It doesn't matter how large or small your agency, we all have the same goal: To preserve the role of the professional agent. By joining DCAHU, you get the knowledge that there are thousands of people dedicated to preserving your place of business and income as much as you. When you look at it this way, isn't the $609 per year ($50.75/mo) a small price to pay to preserve your livelihood?
It is important to realize that you are not just joining at the local level, but that you -now become a member of the state (CAHIP) and national (NAHU) chapters with great power and leverage within political circles. Each year NAHU spends over $1 million to present your interests before Congress and regulatory agencies. Its members hold leadership positions in over a dozen D.C. based healthcare coalitions lobbying Congress on pertinent issues, employ an outstanding team of experienced professionals to ensure your needs come first, and has a grassroots network targeting federal and state legislators with information and lobbying materials in advance of significant legislative votes.
NAHU is regarded by many of Washington's power brokers as the definitive source on the health insurance industry.
The Desert Cities Association of Health Underwriters is honored to support the professional health insurance agents and brokers, and industry representatives of Riverside County. We are single-mindedly dedicated to preserving California's private, market-based healthcare system, and to promoting the agent's vital role in that system. Mandated health benefits. Medical coverage for the uninsurable. Legislative health insurance reforms. Continuing education requirements. New Products. Changing markets. Due diligence. Alternative marketing approaches. These are just a few of the critical issues facing every health insurance professional seeking to succeed in today's competitive market - and your participation in DCAHU and our events will greatly assist you in tracking these issues.
