CAHU-PAC, was established in 1992 as the political action committee associated with the California Association of Health Underwriters (CAHU). Its mission is to facilitate, with strategically targeted political contributions, the legislative and advocacy program of CAHU with a primary emphasis on supporting the role of the agent in the delivery of private health insurance.
CAHU-PAC accepts contributions primarily from licensed insurance agents and insurance companies and operates under California legal authority. CAHU-PAC’s Board of Directors works with CAHU, and the 15 local chapters located throughout the state, to create advocacy opportunities so that legislators understand the vital role of independent and licensed insurance agents.
CAHU-PAC advocates on behalf of licensed insurance agents and their clients in California on numerous issues of vital concern including their role in solicitation of health, long-term care, annuity and life insurance products, insurance market reform, rising health care costs and regulations affecting agents and brokers.
