A message from VAHU President Heather Kochanowicz

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the website of the Virginia Association of Health Underwriters. 

VAHU President Lindsey Waters

There is a tremendous amount of pride in serving as the President of this impactful statewide organization. It is because a VAHU member is a professional who is committed to the industry, committed to continually learning more, committed to making Virginia a better place to live and do business and, most importantly, committed to his or her clients.

Any business or individual in Virginia who needs health insurance should always ask: Is my broker a VAHU broker? It is a very important distinction. A VAHU broker has taken tremendous steps to advocate for his or her clients in the halls of Richmond and on the Capitol steps in Washington D.C. A VAHU broker takes the time to continually meet with leaders who are shaping policies that affect their clients. A VAHU broker is always seeking the latest products and services that can make health insurance more affordable and accessible for their clients. A VAHU broker is a constant resource and a trusted friend.

So, I must ask, why would anyone do business with a broker who was not a VAHU broker?

I urge you to learn more about VAHU and what this organization accomplishes every day for our collective clients. Take a few moments to review this website. You will see an active and proactive organization that is continually advocating for the industry and the individual clients. 

Access to quality health insurance, we believe, is a right, not a privilege, in this great country.  Every single VAHU member is committed to achieving that goal for every individual and business owner in Virginia. 

If you need to find a VAHU broker in your area or have any questions about the association, please email me at  We're eager to help, and you'll find our knowledge invaluable.
