    I can tell you this much. I've been running separate quotes for World's new premier plans since mid-December and I have yet to see one situation where I would seriously recommend it as #1 plan option. :no:

    The premier has ouchy co-insurance and the premier plus is high end stuff from a MOR carrier. HSA is totally not competitive - only 11,200 deductible I know of, and it's their only competitive price. Actually their actuaries must be AWOL because their price structure actually encourages people from the middle HSA to the LOWER one.

    Strange. Just very strange.:err:

    Judging from the title, I thought this thread was going to be a discussion of the Aldous Huxley Novel, or free copies of the book were being "offered" somewhere.

    Sorry about all that code. I didn't even notice it had snuck in there.
    So Peeler, not anything we should take note of for the TX market?
    Bill, I thought the added code would make it a more challenging read.

    I don't have access to a quote engine and I am not appointed with World so I just wanted to know if they had come out with some good, competitive plans.

    Thanks to all.

    Still not competitive in Florida. Not even close. Its too bad, because the desktop software is pretty cool. Filling out the app and saving without internet is nice. Just too bad i will never use it.
