For over 50 years, the Association of California Life and Health Insurance Companies has been the industry's primary voice in Sacramento.
Founded in 1962, by Occidental, Pacific Mutual and Cal-West life insurance companies, ACLHIC began as the Association of California Life Insurance Companies (ACLIC) with an Executive Vice President, Lewis Keller; a secretary and a small office in Oakland.
In 1995, the association's name was changed to the Association of California Life and Health Insurance Companies (ACLHIC), reflecting the increased attention paid to health and disability insurance issues.
From the start, ACLHIC's main goals have been to advance the interests and well-being of the life and health insurance industry before legislative and administrative bodies. Because trust has been established over the years, legislators and regulators know they can rely on ACLHIC as a resource for honest and accurate information about life and health insurance issues.
ACLHIC advocates key insurance issues before legislative and administrative bodies including life, annuity, health, privacy, long-term care, community reinvestment, litigation, solvency, taxation, risk classification, regulation, and insurance organization and regulation.
