In August, GNIAHU welcomed guests Dan Samson, Director of State Affairs with NAHU and Michael O’Brien, Vice President of Bose Public Affairs for our legislative update meeting. Dan provided a federal regulatory update while Mike offered perspective from the Statehouse, focused primarily on updates to the Healthy Indiana Plan.
Past Presidents Tony Nyers and Carri Sheets along with a newly formed golf committee worked hard over the last 6 months to revive our golf outing and it was a huge success – netting an estimated $8,800, with 10% of the proceeds to benefit a local development disability charity called Corvilla.
Also in August, President James Brogdon and President Elect Don Griffey met with 5th District U.S. Congresswoman Jackie Waloriski and staff in her Mishawaka office. We had a productive meeting providing a picture of the current health insurance market for both groups and individuals and asking for her support of NAHU legislative issues including modifying PPACA to ease the 3:1 age bands.
