Many Reasons to Join NAHU and Your Local Chapter

The National Association of Health Underwriters (NAHU) represents more than 100,000 licensed health insurance agents, brokers, consultants and benefit professionals through more than 200 chapters across America. NAHU members service the health insurance needs of large and small employers as well as people seeking individual health insurance coverage.


NAHU’s legislative efforts strive to educate officials on both the federal and state levels about the healthcare system and the vital role of the health insurance agent as a consumer resource and advocate. Through a network of key contacts, NAHU cultivates relationships that allow members to clarify issues before bills are written and votes are taken. These relationships are strengthened through actions undertaken by the Health Underwriters Political Action Committee (HUPAC).

In addition, NABIP Missouri retains a full-time lobbyist in Jefferson City to monitor state issues affecting brokers.


Certification programs, professional designation courses, online resources and conferences are just a few ways NAHU helps members develop professionally as well as personally. NABIP St. Louis, Central Missouri and Springfield, also hosts regular meetings continuing education opportunities are provided.

Being able to reach out to other professionals, asking questions, meeting sales representatives and learning about products are all invaluable opportunities that membership provides. NAHU also offers online networking resources that connect members across the country.
