Legislative Update for VCAHU & LAAHU - October 27, 2020

In Memoriam for M. Lloyd Baum

Lloyd Baum was awarded LAAHU’s coveted Paladin Award in 2007. This is an annual award that recognizes a LAAHU member who has gone far beyond others in contributing to the Association; is always willing to provide service and assistance to others; is a leader and coach who challenges others to aspire to a greater cause, and has done this over a period of time indicating a long term commitment.
His 17 years of service in LAAHU and also with both the State and National Association of Health Underwriters, Lloyd’s contributions were experienced by probably more people than we will ever know. His compassion, dedication, and generosity go well beyond what anyone could ever expect from both an individual and an Association Member.

LEGISLATIVE AFFAIRS

LAAHU members make a difference in Washington and Sacramento.

Legislation

What happens in Sacramento and Washington impacts your clients, your profession, and America’s health care system. Health Underwriters evaluate pending legislation and take action to make sure your voice is heard.

California Priority Bills

Legislative Committee/Adopt a Legislator

What makes Health Underwriters a potent force in shaping legislation is our members’ personal relationships with lawmakers. Members become trusted advisers and sounding boards to their local representatives. You can be a part of this grassroots effort by participating in LAAHU’s Adopt a Legislator program.

Position Papers

Congress expects organizations to complain about the proposed legislation. But they respect those groups who offer solutions. No organization can have an impact if their answer to every proposal is a strident “no.” Health Underwriters has developed in-depth policy papers on issues that matter–another reason why lawmakers hold the organization in such high regard.

Save the Date

Each year LAAHU members join colleagues from around the state to visit lawmakers in Sacramento and from across the country to meet with representatives in Washington.
