I’m known as The Insurance Guy and I’m the owner of The Insurance Source. I love helping solve this complicated problem called health insurance.
Guy Furay founded The Insurance Source in 2005. He was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri as the only brother with eight sisters.
At the age of 11, Guy started working as a golf caddie and became an Evans Scholar, which landed him at the University of Missouri. After studying history and political science, Guy earned a master’s degree in marketing from Webster University.
Guy has conducted numerous media interviews and public speaking engagements as an expert on the Affordable Care Act. He also serves on the board of Health Agents for America (HAFA) and lobbies in Washington, D.C, for improvements in the healthcare and health insurance industry. Guy is also active in multiple local commerce, business leadership and networking organizations. See list of accomplishments here.
In his spare time, Guy likes playing golf, following MIZZOU sports and watching movies.
He is married to Myra Ruiz and has two sons and a stepdaughter.

What Others Are Saying About The Insurance Source
Thank you so much. It’s been a pleasure dealing with you guys. I will certainly pass your name along to other who are in the same boat as we were. (P.S. and I love your by-line… no truer words were spoken!) thank you again for your time and trouble.
I haven’t called at “9:05;” as discussed for my cup of good morning Kristina cheer, but have thought about our conversation every morning – and it made me smile. As you said, one should smile when on the phone – it comes through. You’re absolutely correct it did, and does.
