History of NAHU 

The National Association began in 1930 just a few years following the first recorded plan of modern day group medical expense coverage of 1921. The original medical plan began when a hospital in Grinnell, Iowa offered hospital care on a prepaid basis to subscribers. Baylor University Hospital followed with a similar plan for the University faculty in 1929. Read the full story written by Wallace L. Clapp and Jim Henderson.
