Because Health falls under the SOA, which is generally considered the "Life" side. CAS is the "Casualty" side, even though it includes things other than exclusively casualty practice.

From my perspective, as a Health actuary, I think Health has more in common with P&C in terms of techniques and methodology than it does with anything else on the Life side. In particular, the difference in contract periods makes for some very different risk exposures and dynamics.
