The Warlord feat Saving Inspiration reads as follows:

Benefit: When you use inspiring word, you can forgo any extra dice of healing granted by the power to instead grant the target a saving throw.

If a warlord uses Inspiring Word with this power, can the target choose not to make spend a healing surge but still make a saving throw?



If they don't spend a surge, they don't get the extra healing. If they wouldn't get the extra healing, they can't take the save instead if the extra healing.

On a side note, Mark of Healing (from the Eberron Player's Guide) is vastly superior to Saving Inspiration if you can take it.
