What is SAHU?
The Sacramento Association of Health Underwriters (SAHU) is the Sacramento chapter of the California and National Associations of Health Underwriters (CAHU and NAHU) where members benefit from advocacy, education and professional development. We represent those who serve the health insurance needs of employers and individuals seeking health insurance coverage.
SAHU follows trends in Large and Small Group Managed Care Plans, Wellness Programs, Individual Health Plans, Long Term Care Insurance, Disability Insurance, and Medicare Supplements so you will benefit from state level membership no matter your specialty.

When I joined this association, it was just an excuse to get out of the office for the monthly lunch. 15 years later, it’s an invaluable resource in my toolbox as a leader and a professional.
If I come across a broker that is not a member of SAHU, I ask why not? As a member we support legislation that helps our clients, and us too.
I belong to SAHU because it not only provides support to the broker community on the outside, but we are supportive of each other and can mentor each other.
"I joined in 1986 and enjoy the comradery, results CAHU & NAHU achieve with lobbying efforts, keeping me up to date with health care bills and of course the great social events."
I enjoy the weekly SAHU newsletter with events and tools, coming to meetings to learn about the industry and the perspectives of both carriers and agents.
My yearly dues to Health Underwriters paid off in one week! My client had lots of questions about IRS notice 2015-17- even his ERISA attorney was confusing him. NAHU’s legislative specialist in this subject got me an answer in a day – while he was on vacation!
Even when I went to Covered CA, I felt SAHU would still be extremely helpful disseminating a lot of information on Covered CA and also the broker perspective when working with Covered CA.
