HUPAC is the political action committee of the National Association of Health Underwriters (NAHU). It is the expression of our First Amendment rights to free speech and association guaranteed under the Constitution. Such political expression has become far more than a useful option for professionals in a heavily regulated business like the health insurance industry. It has become a necessity.
HUPAC is registered with the Federal Election Commission. Since NAHU and similar organizations are prohibited from making political contributions, HUPAC was created to allow contributors to combine their financial support to a candidate to achieve maximum effect.
"The purpose of the National Association of Health Underwriter's (NAHU) Political Action Committee (HUPAC) is to raise funds from NAHU members for the purpose of supporting the political campaigns of candidates who believe in private sector solutions for the health and financial security of all Americans."
HUPAC HAS TWO FUNDS
The candidate fund accepts individual contributions through personal credit cards or bank accounts. Funds from this account are given to political candidates, both challengers and incumbents, Democrats and Republicans. Only NAHU members, their spouses and staff can give up to $5,000 each year.
The administrative fund accepts businesses and individual contributions. State and local chapters can also contribute. Money in this account goes to the operating costs of HUPAC so that the candidate fund can be reserved solely for political contributions. Unlike the candidate account, there are no contribution limits on the administrative account.e your paragraph here.
