Legislative Advocacy

OAHU'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, OAHU and NAHU cultivates relationships that allow members to clarify issues before bills are written and votes are taken. These relationships are strengthened through actions undertaken at the national level by Health Underwriters Political Action Committee (HUPAC) and and the state level at Oregon Health Underwriters Political Action Committee (OAHUPAC).
