Access Plans USA, Inc. Receives Nasdaq Determination Letter

July 3, 2008 – Irving, Texas – Access Plans USA, Inc. (Nasdaq: AUSA), a nationwide distributor of health insurance and non-insurance healthcare programs that provide access to affordable healthcare for the growing number of uninsured and/or underinsured in the United States, announced Thursday that it received on June 30, 2008, a letter from The Nasdaq Stock Market indicating that, for the 30 consecutive business days preceding the date of the letter, the bid price of the Company’s common stock had closed below the $1.00 minimum per share bid price required for continued inclusion on The Nasdaq Capital Market. The notification from Nasdaq has no effect on the listing of the Company’s common stock at this time.

In accordance with Marketplace Rule 4310(c)(8)(D), the Company has until December 29, 2008 to regain compliance. If, at anytime before December 29, 2008, the bid price of the Company’s common stock closes at $1.00 per share or more for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days, the Company will have complied with the rule. However, Nasdaq may, in its discretion, require the Company to maintain a bid price of at least $1.00 per share for a period greater than 10 consecutive business days, but generally not more than 20 consecutive business days, before determining that the Company has demonstrated an ability to maintain long-term listing compliance. If the Company does not regain compliance by December 29, 2008, Nasdaq will notify the Company that its common stock will be delisted. At that time, the Company may appeal Nasdaq’s delisting determination to the Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Panel.

The Company intends to actively monitor the closing bid price for its common stock between now and December 29, 2008, and will consider available options to resolve the deficiency and regain compliance with the Nasdaq minimum bid price requirement.
