- South Central’s Larry Mayfield talks ISAHU PAC (5/24/2019)
What about ISAHU-PAC?
I guess as a professional insurance agent I have always seen the value in being a “joiner” and trying to advance the cause of this most noble business that I have chosen to pursue. If you are reading this article, you tend to agree with me, as you are a member of NAHU and ISAHU, thus doing “some” of your part to keep our cause going forward!
However, just being a “member” as much as it is needed and appreciated, is only part of what your commitment should be to our industry. Having made this statement, I am sure that a lot of you already contribute to HUPAC, our national PAC, but have you ever thought about being part of the ISAHU-PAC? Since you and I live in Indiana and derive our income from this wonderful state, should we not also help State candidates and legislators that support what we do within the free market system and private sector health insurance industry? A “wise” friend of mine that is always talking “about membership” in our great association, is always breaking down the cost of this down to a daily basis…so here goes…it would only cost you about .33 cents per day to contribute to the ISAHU-PAC! Good Lord, our Jessie James easy chairs at home have more than that lurking in the cushion and underneath along with the popcorn hulls!!
Under the leadership of Roger Skinner, and ISAHU-PAC “champions” as representatives in most Indiana chapters, we have done a pretty good job of spreading the news and increasing our PAC members and contributions. However, we need YOU to join us in this effort! This is the best way for us to support and have an impact with our Indiana State legislators.
In closing, THANK you to those who already have joined us, and to the rest of my professional insurance associates, would you please think about contributing .33 cents per day or more to such a worthy cause?
Larry Mayfield. ISAHU-PAC Chair

If a local chapter is interested in hosting the Live Webinar or the recorded webinar for CE, please contact Jessica Clayton for instructions.
- SCIAHU March Update (3/22/2019)
We’ve got a lot going on in the South Central these days. Our Feb 7th free lunch and CE was a hit with Carolyn McNairy of TASC presenting. Our March meeting brought Attorney Scott Waters to our location for a discussion on wills and transfer on death provisions – really interesting stuff and Scott is a great presenter. Many great questions followed the discussion.
Our April meeting brings more CE for our members presented by Anthem and Arnie Saunders. Ethics which is required every two years will be provided so come and be educated.
Our May meeting will include one hour of CE and will be a NAHU presentation. More to follow on it.
Finally, we are having our Annual Golf Scramble on May 17th at Timbergate in Edinburgh, IN – nice course. Come and play!
With all of this feel free to contact us if you are interested in attending or playing!
- SCIAHU Partners with Similar Organizations (1/23/2019)
We have started the year off with a bang. Our recently instituted effort to partner with our various carrier members and other markets is going to give us a better budget to work with on our efforts to grow and provide great venues for CE.
In February, we have an upcoming 2 hours of free CE and lunch on the 7th provided by TASC on all things compliance. Carolyn McNairy will be presenting, and if you’ve never heard her speak, I highly recommend you attend. We are opening this up to potential new members we have identified in the counties we draw from as well as employers who need to know what they should be doing to be compliant. This will be held in Scottsburg and will be replacing our regular meeting normally on the 2nd Thursday of the month.
At our January meeting we had speakers from Covering Kids & Families of Indiana, who are navigators, that are working not only on the Marketplace but mostly on helping individuals get HIP and now with understanding the new Gateway to Work requirement. It’s always good to understand these issues when talking with clients so you know all of their options and this was well worth hearing. We hope to see you on the 7th to hear Carolyn McNairy – for more info, contact me!!

- SCIAHU attends National Convention, holds 5-hour CE Day August 9 (7/11/2018)
We were very fortunate to have the lovely and knowledgeable Pat Griffey (2019 NAHU President) present at our June 14thmember meeting in Scottsburg. She included in her topics the need to understand the NAHU Anti-Trust Statement and spoke about NAHU’S Education Foundation and Operation Engage all of which are important offerings to our membership. And don’t forget those Podcasts!
We had 3 members of our local attend the National Convention in Kansas City with our own Andrea Bogard coming home with one of the 4 Distinguished Service Awards given out at the Gordon Memorial Dinner. What a surprise for her and a well-deserved honor.
Our Annual Strategic Planning Meeting was also held In early June and was an awesome time of planning for our future for our Chapter. Many great ideas and plans were discussed in all areas of involvement.
August 9th is our 5-hour CE Day!
CE starts at 8:45 and hope to wrap things up by 2:15. Topics include: E&O, Medicare Marketing and Compliance, Insurance and Millennials, and lastly Medicare, Related Programs and Resources.
