NAHU’s California Chapter Successfully Defeats Single-Payer Initiative
SACRAMENTO, CA 23 February 2022 — Single-payer advocates in the California legislature simply did not have the votes required to pass AB 1400 out of the state Assembly last week, resulting in a major victory for health insurance professionals across the Golden State. AB 1400 would have eliminated private health coverage in California and replaced it with a single-payer, state-run healthcare system.
CAHIP, SAHU, and the majority of California’s NAHU chapters participated in supporting efforts to oppose this bill. “This is why I am a member of SAHU, it keeps me in the know on important legislation that affects our insurance industry,” says SAHU President-Elect, Rosamaria Marrujo.
If you’d like to know more about the bill, its contents, and why insurance industry professionals opposed it, read the information provided by NAHU at the link below.
For over 30 years, SAHU has worked to improve our members’ ability to meet the health, financial and retirement security needs of all Californians and Americans through education, advocacy, and professional development. For more information, please visit: sahu-ca.com.
