As I move forward on the ISAHU board under the position of NAHU Education Foundation Chair, I am excited to introduce you to this wonderful non-profit side of NAHU.
The NAHU Education Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that helps the public stay informed about the public and private health insurance options available to them. The foundation creates educational materials for the American public about private health insurance options, whether consumers are buying health insurance coverage on their own, purchasing coverage through the exchange or signing up for a plan through their employer. The foundation also assists those needing coverage who may be eligible for public programs like Medicare, Medicaid or children’s health insurance programs.
To learn more about the NAHU Education Foundation, please visit their website at: www.nahueducationfoundation.org. There you will find resources that provide short education videos designed to educate the American public about wellness, prevention and the cost of healthcare services.
In addition to videos, there is printed materials to help with all aspects of health insurance.
The NAHU Education Foundation has recently helped seniors who are new to Medicare as well as individuals who have lost health insurance. They have coordinated outreach projects which have provided resources on healthy lifestyles and care packages to underprivileged families in various US communities.
