SWIAHU Member Roger Garrett Joins Medicare Advisory Group

Roger Garrett, CLU, ChFC, CSS was asked by Janet Trautwein, NAHU CEO, to consider joining the NAHU Medicare Advisory Group.  The Medicare Advisory Group reviews relevant changes to Medicare coverage and develops resources for members to advise their clients on products.

After passing a vetting process Roger was confirmed on March 17th as the Region 3 Representative by Dwane McFerrin, Medicare Advisory Group Chair, to provide his expertise on all things senior market and Medicare related.

Roger will meet with other representatives on a monthly basis to discuss relevant policy issues and advise the council and Board of Trustees on legislation, regulation and positions.

What an honor for Roger and a testament to his knowledge and proficiency in the field.  SWIAHU is so proud of you.

State of the HUnion

We will be able to hit the ground running, as this past cycle HUPAC had a 95% win rate on the candidates we funded. That’s the best showing ever by HUPAC. It was a significant improvement from the 2012 cycle, when HUPAC had a 77% win rate, and from 2014, when we had 91% win rate. This means your hard-earned dollars are being strategically invested and we get the biggest bang for our buck! It also means that many of our supporters and friends are returning to Congress, which will help us push our legislative agenda in this new Congress.
