    A unit of Access Plans USA Inc. has signed up for 2 years of use of technology from a unit of Health Benefits Direct Corp.

    Health insurance agents at America’s Health Care/Rx Plan Agency Inc., part of Access Plans, Irving, Texas, will get access to a Web-based health insurance quotation system developed by Insurint Corp., a unit of Health Benefits Direct, Radnor, Pa., the companies say.

    The Insurint system is different from other Web-based health insurance quotation systems, because it gives agents and brokers the ability to include more information about the applicant’s health in requests for quotes, Health Benefits Direct says.

    I am always a bit worried about my Norvax software doing the same thing.

    At least with Norvax and Quotit you know you're dealing with a tech company. Especially with Quotit because you don't have the lead interest there. I don't think Norvax would steal your leads although they MIGHT just sell your website leads if they think you don't need them :laugh:...

    With HBD/Insurint/AHCP/whatever, you have several clashing interests, egos, call centers, GA's, etc., going on. Beware of what you're getting into there. Start with Quotit, then Norvax, then a few other also-rans in there. Tech is tech, or at least it should be.

    I don't see how HBD can last in it's present form much longer. Just about out of gas.

    Their corp HQ is five minutes from me and I worked there for three weeks until I went insane, telling off a floor manager once and for all. I had already decided to quit that am anyway.

    What do you know about them going down?
