A major health insurance organization will be competing (in a small way) with Larry King.[@@]

The education foundation affiliated with the National Association of Health Underwriter, Arlington, Va., will be sponsoring a 1-hour, Web-based talk show featuring Sharon Alt, a past president of the Forth Worth, Texas, NAHU chapter.

Speakers on the series will include members of Congress, health insurance executives, providers, business owners and consumers, NAHU says.

Listeners will be able to call in to ask questions.

The show will appear on the VoiceAmerica Network, a Web-based talk “radio” network, starting at 3 p.m. March 31. The first batch of 13 episodes will continue to run at 3 p.m. on Thursdays until June 23, NAHU says.
