Making a Difference in People's Lives. One Member at a Time.
Our association is a local chapter of the National Association of Health Underwriters (NAHU). The role of OCAHU is to promote and encourage the association of professionals in the health insurance field for the purpose of educating, promoting effective legislation, sharing information and advocating fair business practices among our members, the industry and the general public.
It has become obvious that those speaking about single-payer, universal healthcare and “Medicare for all” are using those terms interchangeably. These terms are not interchangeable and already have a set definition of what they are and what they are not.
As a result, a glossary of frequently used terms will help all involved in the discussion of the Healthy California Act or other single payer initiatives to use the correct terminology when referencing “single payer,” “universal access to health care,” “Medicaid” and “Medicare” among others.
