UAHU is an association of health insurance professionals who specialize in the delivery of individual and group insurance products. Our focus is to educate our members while improving our healthcare system. UAHU represents three local chapters, clients, the insureds, and works to make health insurance more affordable and accessible for all Utahns. By educating elected officials, UAHU urges lawmakers to avoid unnecessary legislation and the unintended consequences that often follow increased governmental involvement.
The Utah State Chapter of the National Association of Health Underwriters commenced on May 15, 1985. The charter members included nine passionate insurance producers lead by UAHU’s first president, Robert M. Johnson. Now, the chapter membership exceeds 300 strong. Local Chapters within Utah include the Northern Chapter and Salt Lake Chapter.
Current UAHU President
Starting as President during a pandemic has brought the chapter to a crossroads. Therefore, we are getting on board shifting to virtual events and finding ways to support our members during this time. There is a new fervor, and I will be working with the board to offer our members CEs, industry information, legislative updates, and new opportunities for connection.
On February 17th, 2021, we will have our Day on the Hill virtually, offering opportunities to connect with not only legislators but movers and shakers in the industry. Click HERE for further information.
Whether your focus is group benefits, individual policies, or Medicare. Whether your title is agent, broker, valued staff member, priceless customer service person, or carrier representative. We are ALL being looked to for guidance, advice and direction. We are ALL protecting someone’s interests. Therefore, we are ALL called Underwriters, and we invite you to join our association.
I am proud to serve as your President!
2020 has been a particularly challenging year. As we continue through this unprecedented time, UAHU Leadership is working hard to bring all our members value. We are working on virtual events, continuing education, and look forward to the time when we can again meet in person.
Together we are stronger. Thank you for your membership in UAHU and NAHU. Thank you for the opportunity to serve in our Association.
