The nature of Forethought’s business dictates that their health insurance coverage is not used as an individual’s primary health care coverage. Their policies are meant to be a supplemental insurance product to cover health care expenses not normally taken care of by Medicare Part A and Part B.
With all the changes to Medicare policies over the last several years, this type of supplemental insurance is becoming more and more important for seniors. It may be even more so following the full implementation of the government healthcare overhaul in 2014.
Forethought Financial Group maintains its executive headquarters in Houston and its insurance operations in Indiana. The company also maintains administrative center in Indiana. We have listed below the addresses and contact information for both the executive and corporate insurance offices.

Forethought Financial Group utilizes a long list of independent, local agents for its life insurance products. For its Medicare supplement program, the company utilizes a much smaller list of “exclusive” agents. In utilizing fewer agents for their Medicare supplement Forethought is better able to manage how these policies are written and serviced.
The need for such management in this area is demonstrated by the fact that different states have different rules and regulations regarding how Medicare is administered. Local agents will be much more familiar with those state regulations, and therefore much more adept at handling customer needs than a corporate agent.

For the agents themselves, the website provides a separate section where you can sign up to represent Forethought in your agency.
