About Us

What is TNAHU?

The Tennessee Association of Health Underwriters serves as the State governing body of the National Association of Health Underwriters (NAHU) which was founded in 1930 and represents more than 130,000 licensed health insurance agents, brokers, general agents, consultants and benefit professionals through more than 200 chapters across America.

NAHU members service the health insurance needs of Fortune 500 companies to small businesses and individuals seeking health insurance. Every day, NAHU members work to obtain insurance for clients who are struggling to balance their desire to purchase high-quality and comprehensive health coverage with the reality of rapidly escalating medical care costs. As such, one of NAHU's primary goals is to do everything we can to promote access to affordable health insurance coverage.

NAHU members not only provide traditional health insurance products, but also coverage such as dental, long-term care, disability, Medicare Advantage and Medicare Supplements and a variety of consumer-driven products. Members agree to abide by NAHU's Code of Ethics, which requires them to always make health care coverage recommendations with the customer's best interest in mind.
