Mission & Vision

NAHAA is the newly formed National Association of Health Access Assisters, a project of California Coverage & Health Initiatives (CCHI).


The National Association of Health Access Assisters elevates, advances, and advocates for the Health Access Assister profession. The goal is to promote and support the work of our members who help individuals, children, and families gain, use, and retain high quality health care and coverage.



The voice and identity of Health Access Assisters is recognized nationally as an important part of the health care system and key to improved health outcomes.


Key Priorities

  1. Communicate the value Health Access Assisters provide by collecting and analyzing qualitative and quantitative research.

  2. Develop and secure sustainable funding to properly resource Health Access Assisters.

  3. Provide effective training and best practices to increase & retain enrollment, and meet consumer health care needs.

  4. Advocate at the federal level and support member advocacy at the state and local levels on policy issues impacting both Health Access Assisters and consumers in the legislative and regulatory arenas.  

  5. Create space and opportunities to enhance membership support and community.
