Without a fully unified private health/disability insurance industry, the chance of maintaining private sector insurance delivery is greatly diminished! We have all seen government attempts to take over health care delivery, as we know it. There is little doubt that such proposals will continue to surface in the years to come. The survival of competitive individual sales of private health/disability depends on each member’s strong affiliation, strong positive image, and representation before the public and public officials. Providing a unified message to all these opinion leaders is essential and best done by your association. WAHU is dedicated to helping each member control his or her destiny and that of their profession.
"Change is constant, we all know that. Each day we strive to protect our clients from "the blind side" of the unknown. WAHU strives each day to protect my blind side by keeping me informed of legislation at the State and Federal level. More importantly, WAHU keeps me informed of pending legislation, allowing me to be part of the solution. WAHU has broadened my horizons in other areas within the industry to expand my business. This is an organization of highly professional individuals and I consider myself fortunate to be a member."
