CFAHU is a local chapter of the National Association Of Health Underwriters (NAHU). NAHU represents more than 100,000 licensed health insurance agents, brokers, general agents, consultants and benefit professionals through more than 200 chapters across America. CFAHU members service the health insurance needs of large and small employers as well as people seeking individual health insurance coverage. Every day, CFAHU members work to obtain insurance for clients who are struggling to balance their desire to purchase high-quality and comprehensive health coverage with the reality of rapidly escalating medical care costs. As such, one of our primary goals is to do everything we can to promote access to affordable health insurance coverage.
CFAHU members help thousands of consumers by guiding them through the complexities of health insurance purchasing and enrollment, while ensuring they get the best policy at the most affordable price. We seek to understand each personal situation to create recommendations that complement a client’s financial and medical security needs. And our job does not end with the sale. Our licensed producers help their clients with claims issues, service questions and compliance matters throughout the life of each policy they sell.
Our members have a unique understanding of consumer health care needs, the perspective of business owners and the economic realities of health insurance markets. We not only sell traditional health insurance products, but also coverage such as dental, long-term care, disability, Medicare Advantage and Medicare Supplements and a variety of consumer-driven products. Members agree to abide by NAHU’s Code of Ethics, which requires them to always make health care coverage recommendations with the customer’s best interest in mind.
CFAHU offers its members a multitude of educational opportunities, including advanced designation programs, continuing-education classes and online learning. CFAHU members are provided with professional conferences and networking functions, publications and business-development tools. We also conduct advocacy efforts at the state and federal levels of government to advance the interests of health insurance professionals and to promote affordable and responsible private health insurance market solutions.
