WHO IS WAHU????
The Wisconsin Association of Health Underwriters (WAHU) is the
professional association for more than 500 individuals in the health
insurance industry who market and service health insurance and related
products, including group health insurance, dental insurance, self-funded
benefit plans, utilization review programs, preferred provider organizations,
short and long term disability plans, long term care plans and more.
The members of WAHU come from all corners of Wisconsin and assist
individuals and employee groups ranging from two to thousands.
There are other agent associations, however, WAHU is the only agent
association that solely represents those professionals in the health
benefits industry. WAHU is the state chapter of the National Association
of Health Underwriters (NAHU), which has more than 16,000 members
nationwide. WAHU provides its members with state and national legislative
representation, continuing education, industry and market information.
As the members of WAHU work directly with the consumers in the
day to day issues relating to their health and health-related benefits,
WAHU considers itself as a consumer advocacy group. For the majority
of our members, selling insurance represents a fraction of the time
our members spend with their customers. Overwhelmingly, the majority
of our members' time is occupied servicing Wisconsin consumers,
such as explaining the complexities and details of benefit plans;
working with insurance companies to solve customer claim and administrative
problems; and, helping consumers find cost effective and appropriate
means for financing health-care.
WAHU stands ready to help legislators, regulators and consumer
groups in helping them understand the complexities of the financing
of health care.
