Legislative Affairs

LAAHU members make a difference in Washington and Sacramento.


What happens in Sacramento and Washington impacts your clients, your profession and America’s health care system. Health Underwriters evaluates pending legislation and takes 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 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.
