It's a pleasure to work with Tarek El Ali! He helped me successfully get medical coverage for my small business. He made the process very easy and he responds to all concerns promptly. Thank you, Tarek.

I worked with Tarek to find a suitable Medicare plan for my husband. We got it handled in one phone call. I was so impressed! Now I am becoming eligible for Medicare and worked with Tarek again. He was amazing! We found an affordable plan that meets all of my needs. I highly recommend him and will use his services again in the future.

I was previously working with someone through my franchise company to set up insurance for my employees. Low and behold after weeks of working with her she was not able to complete my process and was not very responsive when I asked her questions. She referred me to Tarek to finish up and he immediately contacted me and got my plan completed within the day! He was super nice and made sure my account was set up and ready to go before we missed our deadline. Highly recommended!

Healthcare.gov can be a little confusing so I called them up for help figuring everything out when I turned 26. Tarek is excellent at what he does. He had everything figured out for me in less than 15 minutes on the phone with him. I was so impressed that he will continue to be my go to guy for anything heath insurance related. I can not recommend him enough.

This is our 2nd time working with Tarek to find the right health insurance policy for my small business. In both cases the knowledge of the changing insurance landscape in Illinois has helped us greatly.
