Bill is the best. His response time is super quick and no question is too silly. He goes above and beyond and never replies with “call customer service”. I get super stressed out with insurance and his calm demeanor and knowledgeable responses always put me at ease.
As a new retiree, the options of selecting a healthcare plan are overwhelming. Bill is very knowledgeable and patient, and assisted me navigating the different plans to chose the right one for me. Thank you Bill!
Bill Forrest was the only one we talked to that took the time to explain the Medicare process to us in a down-to-earth manner, allowing us to make educated choices that were a good fit for our Medicare needs. In addition, we recommended Bill Forrest to several friends and family members who were also very satisfied with his professionalism, knowledge and patience with explaining the complicated Medicare plans available. We’ll be sure to recommend Bill to anyone with insurance needs.
Bill Forrest helped my Dad with his insurance needs many years ago as well as both of my brothers. When I found myself needing insurance, I immediately reached out to Bill. He came highly recommended but I must admit he far exceeded my expectations. He is extremely knowledgeable and professional. I appreciated that he was very patient and never grew tired of my questions. On a scale of 1-10, Bill Forrest is an 11!
Mr. Bill Forrest navigated a wonderful pathway in assisting me with all my Medicare needs. I was extremely happy with the level of service I received from him. I would recommend him highly to anyone who is entering the Medicare phase.
I am extremely happy to recommend Bill Forrest who came to my rescue when I needed private health insurance. He was extremely patient and knowledgeable and at no point had any agenda other than helping me find the best healthcare that would meet my needs. I felt so well taken care of and I had the utmost confidence that the process would go smoothly and at the end I would have healthcare that I could be at peace with. In this world with so many unknowns and disappointments it is such a pleasure to be able to have such a positive experience with such an upstanding, reliable, dedicated, and kind human being.
I want to thank you for your guidance and expertise in helping me review my insurance options. I certainly have become a better educated consumer because of your help. Again, thank you for your insights and support. You are very good at what you do and I appreciate that. Thanks so much.
We again want to thank you for providing us with thoughtful, reliable, trusted council in choosing our health insurance. This yearly process could be filled with confusion & anxiety if it wasn't for your help. We are certainly thankful for your service.
Many years ago my husband and I needed to find health insurance for a family member who was losing their health insurance and has significant health problems. We didn't know where to turn for help until my husband's sister recommended Bill. After just one phone call with Bill we felt better. He listened to our story and asked the right questions to start looking for the right policy for our family member. Bill presented reasonable options and helped us to find a sense of security. Each year he makes sure we continue to have the policy that provides the best help in paying for medical expenses. I do not know what we would have done without him.
Thank you Bill for helping me get through the Medicare insurance process. I found you to be very thorough, articulate and easy to understand! Waiting for our next discussion.
Just wanted to say "Thank you" for the referral to Bill Forrest. He's been great to work with in getting Sheri and I set up with our Medicare supplemental insurance! He was very helpful in reviewing plan information, submitting applications, and advising on what to expect through the process. I will recommend Bill to others.
I would like to share what a great experience it is to have Bill Forrest as my Medicare consulting expert. Bill is extremely knowledgeable, thorough, and very patient. He will spend as much time as you need to help you understand Medicare and most importantly to learn about all the optional supplemental insurance plans that you may consider. I believe that Bill will guide you to make educated decisions for your specific needs. I recommend Bill to all my family and friends. It would be worth your time to contact him for a no cost consultation.
Got all the boxes checked, I truly appreciate your professionalism and communication.
Bill has worked with my husband's family to help them find the best insurance plan as they retire and did the same for me, twice. The first time was when I retired and the second time was as we plan to move to another state. He is well versed on options, thorough and always responsive. I have recommended him to friends gladly.
Dear Bill, Thank you for being so attentive and helpful in my search for the right Medicare Insurance products. I imagine you dressed like Johnny Carson used to when he would divine the answer to questions on 3x5 index cards, holding the cards to his head... knowing just what insurance plans I needed. Thanks again
Thank you very much Bill! We appreciate how nicely and thoroughly you cared for our insurance needs. It has been a pleasure to work with you.
Thank you again for all your help, I was not looking forward to signing up to Medicare and having to learn about what I had to buy to go with it. Your knowledge, experience and patience made it painless and with your guidance I felt I purchased what was best for me.
Hi Bill Just wanted to say thank you very much for your help & info regarding my Medicare questions I was able to understand it much better after speaking with you it was so overwhelming not knowing what decisions to make but your help eased the way I will definitely be recommending your services to family and friends take care Sincerely
I can’t be grateful enough for your help in selecting good insurance for my sister. Your knowledge and willingness to help people is above and beyond. I will continue to recommend you every time I can.
I first contacted Bill in 2016 after he was referred to me by my business insurance agent. Operating a small business, I found the health insurance was becoming harder and harder to navigate and afford.
Bill took the time, and had the patience, to explain all of the options available for my wife and I in a way that even I could understand! I have conferred with Bill every year since and cannot overstate how his expertise has helped me save money, time and frustration when the enrollment period comes around. This year I qualified for Medicare and it was Bill to the rescue again. I’m not sure I could have sorted out all of the plans and the countless supplemental options without his guidance. I would highly recommend Mr. Forest for anyone seeking an extremely knowledgeable insurance advisor and all around good guy!!
Bill Forrest has been very helpful in helping me navigate the Medicare & Supplemental Insurance maze of products that are out there. He helped me choose the options that were right for me. He was personable & always quick to return calls & answer any questions. I am comfortable referring my friends to him.
Turning 65 is one of life’s key milestones none of us looks forward to. Facing the prospect of sifting through the confusing language, choices, and options relating to the best medicare plan to sign up for was also something I did not look forward to. All of my fears and anxiety quickly dissipated once I started working with Bill. He helped me understand the components of a well-designed medicare plan that would work best for me and my circumstances, and guided me through all the steps necessary to set-up my Medicare Parts A & B, my supplemental plan, as well as my Part D Drug Plan. More importantly, he steered me away from the myriad confusing plans and options that didn’t apply to me, saving me from wasting hours of time researching what did not make sense for my situation. I consider Bill a trusted advisor, not an insurance salesman.
Being an independent contractor and having had past medical needs. I know the importance of Health Insurance. A colleague of mine told me to speak with Bill as she found him very knowledgeable and patient. Easy to talk to and always had the answer I needed. That was 2017 and I was just widowed and needed all the assistance I could get BILL was there and did not disappoint. He has been my go too for all health insurance needs. He has been available for all my questions during the last five months regarding my transition to Medicare. He has helped me through each step and made it painless. I am happy to report that because of Bill I am now a card carrying Medicare member with a prescription plan as well. Thank you, Bill! You are amazing!
I decided I wanted to change course in my career so I accepted a new job position. My last day at my current job was at the end of the month, and it just so happened that my old insurance terminated on the last day of the month. I found out that the new medical insurance would not take effect until I was employed for at least 30 days, so I would be without insurance for an entire month. I reached out to Bill and he immediately responded to my inquiries about short term medical coverage. I thought this would be a daunting task, but Bill made the process seem so effortless. His knowledge and expertise in the subject area allowed me to make the best decision for my family. He was thorough and made sure I understood exactly what I was signing up for. I highly recommend Bill for your insurance needs, he will go above and beyond to make sure you make the best decision for you.
My husband and I would highly recommend the use of Bill Forrest’s excellent service and advise If you are getting close to retirement and are ready to look for your Medicare supplemental insurance choices along with Part D prescription coverage for medications. Mr Forrest will find you the best plan for your circumstances. He is patient and very willing to answer your questions. His web site is a treasure trove of information which is very helpful as you consider your options. We recommend contacting him for your insurance needs especially if you are considering retirement in the near future.
Bill was referred to me when I retired at 62. What a a godsend! He has assisted me through COBRA, an individual insurance plan and all things Medicare once I reached 65. He is very knowledgeable, detailed, beyond patient and very attentive. There is no question that is insignificant to Bill. He is passionate about his work which makes him a delight to work with. Everyone should have Bill Forrest in their health insurance/Medicare toolbox!

6. A very nice human being.
Neither one of us would hesitate recommending Mr. Forrest to friends or family.
As a small business owner, finding insurance has always been an issue. I was referred to Bill by another business owner who spoke very highly of the services Bill provides. Bill's innate ability to understand my individual needs for insurance was beyond amazing. He gave such clear options, explaining everything in detail to make sure that I understood. Bill not only met my expectations and individual needs, he far surpassed them. Bill was always available to provide more detailed information if I needed it. He understood the nature of my business and financial situation. He was always very thoughtful and provided the kind of customer service that I hope we provide to our customers. Being a small business owner, we can get lost in the sea of the big businesses. I am thrilled that we have joined forces with Bill to take care of our insurance needs. In addition, Bill has help reduce my insurance expenses immensely. I wish I had known him years ago, and my advice would be not to put this off, call him as soon as possible.
We’ve worked with Bill for the last 8 years for all of our health care insurance questions, and we couldn’t be happier about his industry knowledge, responsiveness, and his genuine care for our needs, versus his. When I retired and my wife turned 65, we needed the best supplemental plan for our individual needs. Bill came to our home for a face-to-face meeting. After reviewing several choices, we both choose BCBS IL. He also offered us some options for Part D plans, but he agreed that a plan that he did not offer would be better for us. After a few years, BCBS IL changed their supplemental plans. Bill contacted us to discuss the new plans and how we may be able to save some money by moving to a new plan. Success! Bill helped us save several thousand dollars a year in our health care costs. My wife and I highly recommend Bill for all of your health care needs, now and in the future.
Our office and I have had the pleasure of working with Bill Forrest for at least over 20 years. Bill is a very capable agent with a vast knowledge of how the healthcare insurance system works. Bill is the ultimate professional, patient when working through the minute details and always following up after the process.
I would highly recommend him for assistance when dealing with any healthcare insurance issues.
One other thing, Bill is always a positive and pleasant person and making the whole process much easier and less stressful. I guarantee you will feel like you are in capable hands.
Five ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ recommendation for Bill Forrest. Over ten years ago we were in need of private health insurance when we lost our employer sponsored plan. We had a potato chip bag clip which had Bill's contact information on it. We gave him a call, and what a blessing it turned out to be. Bill thoroughly assessed the health needs of our family and crafted an all inclusive plan. Within months cancer touched our family and the plan that Bill found for us saved us tens of thousands of dollars. We were able to keep our doctors and after our deductible was paid, all other expenses were covered. Surgeries, radiation, chemotherapy - all covered. If Bill had not taken the time to find us a custom plan for our family our health and financial outcomes would have been completely different. Bill continually monitored our changing family needs and made sure our plan continued to work for us in the years since. He did not forget about us. As we approached the Medicare deadlines Bill reached out to guide us with the enrollment process and made sure we had the appropriate supplemental insurance for expenses not covered by Medicare. In short, Bill will be your agent, partner and guide. He is not a salesman and he will make solid recommendations with your best interests at heart. I have referred friends and family to Bill over the years and he has taken care of them as well. Bill Forrest has my highest endorsement and I recommend him, without hesitation, to take care of your insurance needs.
Bill has been a great help over the years, with his advice and counsel in keeping my family and I properly covered with our health insurance. This past year, I qualified for Medicare and like so many I was confused and looking for direction on what to do. Bill's patience in giving me information and guidance through the process was invaluable. It isn't often that one can find someone so helpful and more importantly someone so trustworthy. Over the years not only has Bill been tremendous with followup, but his calls are ones I actually look forward to.

When it comes to insurance brokers Bill Forrest is both passionate and knowledgeable. I met Bill when I started my business and I needed healthcare for my family Twenty-one years later Bill still handles my family medical insurance along with the medical insurance for all my employees During the past 21 years Bill has guided me through the process of selecting which health care plan would be the best fit for my family and employees, we meet once a year as the plans renew, and I also receive a phone call once a month asking if there is anything he can assist me with or If I have any questions. I really appreciate Bill answering an email or a phone call over the weekend or after hours when one of us has a medical emergency and we are checking if a certain hospital or doctor is in our plan. I'm sure if you chose Bill as your health insurance advisor that you will be as happy as I am that I did all those years ago.
