Becoming a member of the Greater Cincinnati Association of Health Underwriters means membership on the national, state, and local levels. GCAHU is the local chapter of the National Association of Health Underwriters (NAHU), and because our members are drawn from Southwestern Ohio, Northern Kentucky, and Southeastern Indiana, they in turn have state membership either in Ohio, Kentucky, or Indiana. Membership is coexistence, and to belong to one, you must belong to the other two.
Why Join GCAHU?
We encourage you to join the Greater Cincinnati Association of Health Underwriters (GCAHU) and the National Association of Health Underwriters (NAHU)- the only association devoted to you, the health insurance agent. As members of an increasingly threatened and little understood vocation, it is more important than ever that health insurance professionals band together for maximum impact.
By becoming a member, you partner yourself with the best the industry has to offer. NAHU members include not only the top health insurance agents in the nation, but also the most respected. Likewise, NAHU membership guarantees your access to the best resources available to health insurance professionals. Here are some of the benefits your NAHU membership provides:
Top-Quality Representation – Each year, NAHU spends over $1,000,000 to present your interests before Congress and regulatory agencies. NAHU employs an outstanding team of experienced professionals to ensure your needs come first.
Information Straight From the Source – When something happens that affects your business, you’ll hear about it first from NAHU. We talk to the power brokers you need to hear from – and pass the information on to you.
Moving Ahead – Health care reform continues to be the leading issue on Capitol Hill and in statehouses around the country. The combined strength of 17,000 NAHU members means your voice will be heard. Through NAHU, you have the power to decide the future of your industry.
Membership benefits included through your local association GCAHU include:
Continuing Education: Our local association offers the highest quality education at the lowest prices anywhere. We work hard to offer you the education you need to keep your license current without breaking your budget. The GCAHU Education Committee puts together and offers approximately 14 hours of Continuing Education each year. All of these courses have been granted reciprocity with Kentucky and we will continue this request. With this concentration of CE approved monthly meetings and special programs, any member can meet their state qualification through this organization.
Networking: Making time to attend monthly local meetings will pay off in the long run. Meeting attendees often include carrier representatives, potential clients, and other healthcare professionals looking to do business with you. Only GCAHU gives you the chance to meet these people right here at home.
The mission of the GCAHU is to serve the public in the areas of health care and disability income protection by:
