    This company’s business model is to wear you down with such burdensome customer relations that you are too exhausted to complete the claim and end up just paying for the repair yourself. Without any exaggeration or hyperbole, here is my one year of experiences with the company

    1) A typical service request:
    – Initiate service request: Wait for the contractor to come to your home (Duration: 1-3 weeks depending on the number of no shows)
    – When a contractor finally comes you will need to wait to see if contractor sent the report to HSA—Hint: they don’t (Duration: 1 week)
    – Call HSA so they can leave a message for the contractor to send his report (Duration: 48 hours, which is the time HSA says they are required to wait)
    – Call HSA again so they can again try to reach the contractor for an “HSA policy” second time (Duration: 48 hours)
    – After still no response from the contractor, call HSA again so they can then initiate the “claim investigation department” (Duration: 48 hours)
    – When there is no resolution after a “thorough investigation,” they send out another contractor and the process starts ALL OVER AGAIN. I wish this was a joke.

    2) They take no responsibility for the people they contract with and will outright tell you that they don’t follow up with contractors unless you contact HSA first to request it. Meaning, that each step in the process above will require you to make several calls, each with a hold time of 10-45 min during your work hours

    3) If you ever make it through the steps above, you will encounter they will find more road blocks. Example: Even though my refrigerator is covered in the warranty, they refused to fix a water leak from the fridge stating they don’t cover parts related to the water dispenser. When I explained that the water dispenser is working fine, they said the contractor wrote the water it needed replaced, even though the contractor explicitly told me he was going to just “write something down because he didn’t know what was wrong so they would replace the fridge.” Ultimately, I ended up having to spend a total of five hours on the phone, use a vacation day for the contractor visit, pay the $75 deductible, AND buy a whole new fridge because the water damage it was causing to the kitchen.

    My wife and I our first time home owners and this company was selected by my realtor for “peace of mind” if anything breaks. Please don’t make the same mistake we did. I wouldn’t wish this company on my worst enemy.

    The home seller provided me with a one year plan with HSA. I needed them for 2 claims in the past year. One was a major plumbing problem and they refused coverage. The second claim was for a pool malfunction and the contractor they provided said he could not submit the repair costs to HSA but still charged the $75 deductible. I am sure all the home warranty companies have their moments of dishonesty but this one appears to be one of the worst.

    I have had HSA Home Warranty for 5 years. No real issues and have used them twice for my water heater. However, my monthly cost suddenly almost doubled without warning or notice on my new contract. When I called them they had no idea why it went from $405 to $729. This will be my last year with HSA if tney cannot get my price lowered. Very unethical business practice.

    Waste of MONEY! I bought this warranty because I moved to a home with a very old hvac set up. What do you know, had an issue with my ac barely working and they determined it was because of rodent damage. Well that is not covered. I also learned that basically there is a list a mile long of things not covered. What is the point of the warranty if they have so many reasons not covered?? wish I could get my money back, but they say I am under a contract so no refunds. NEVER AGAIN.

    Stay away from this company. They don’t even answer the phone. All they do is deposit the contract payment in their account. Terrible service.

    Impossible to get through to HSA without a 30 minute wait time. They will also not provide any case/reference # for open issues for customers to reach an HSA agent faster. Most times their “authorized” service vendors do not show-up. HSA will do everything to prevent paying out a claim. Do not waste money by buying their policy … instead use it to pay the servicemen directly if required. An aggravating waste of time.

    SCAM ALERT!!! THIS “COMPANY” IS THE WORST RIP-OFF EVER. PLEASE DO NOT GIVE THESE HORRIBLE, RUDE, NASTY PEOPLE YOUR MONEY!!! THEY WILL TAKE IT AND RUN!!!

    I paid $1,000 for a 1-year warranty. It was very easy to reach someone to buy the policy. In fact, when I didn’t purchase it right away they called me! They sent me a letter! Because they wanted the sale. After I gave them $1,000 it became nearly impossible to reach anyone to make a claim. You have to hold close to an hour to get a live person some of the time, and even then they will often transfer you to someone else and you start holding all over again. I have now paid more than $1500 out of my pocket for a repair that has still not been completed because THEIR “repair person” claims it is one thing, but the 4 other professionals (all unrelated and from different local companies) said it is something else upon which they all agree. Four neutral opinions agree, the HSA repair person does not. 4 against 1 against HSA but HSA won’t budge, they won’t answer the phone, and you have no other way to reach them than the main number. PLEASE DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS SCAM.

    Had a serious plumbing leak and they sent me to aa contractor who had a F rating by BBB and had been revoked by BBB. They said if I used another contrator even if it was number 2 on THEIR list They would only pay for what the F rated contractor would get. I had damage to my hard wood floors and they said they wouldn’t cover that at all because it was secondary damage. Needless to say I will not be renewing my contract with them

    HSA Warranty Protection has been nothing but pure headaches for me since I moved into my home in July 2014. Excuses, no follow-up with vendors, representatives are clueless and oftentimes do not make notes of phone calls. I have been waiting since the day before Thanksgiving to have a bathroom sink repaired….and on a recall no less. Unbelievable! 12 days and still counting after excuse after excuse. I will really be relieved when the contract is over. Pros: I have a contract. Cons: the contract is virtually worthless because the service is awful.

Now after sending 2 techs that fixed nothing David D (supervisor) is holding to the position that we used our $1500 allowance per issue anything else denied. This was spent on people THEY sent that fixed Nothing !WE STILL HAVE NO HEAT OR HOT WATER FOR OVER A MONTH !!!

    Do NOT use HSA. Their customer service is horrible. Every time I had to wait for 30 min or more to talk with a representative. When they promised to call you back on a day, they usually didn’t. When they did call, they called from a number my phone didn’t recognize and you’d better pick up the phone in the first second- the phone rang just for one second then hang up and they didn’t leave a message and they considered this as “I’ve called you.”

    They did everything to not pay out legit claims. After numerous calls and week long wait without AC in the summer, I was offered less than 10% of the cost of replacing my failing AC, which HSA agreed is not reparable.

    Horrendous company. Lousy customer service, I had a complete breakdown of my HVAC where it had to be replaced (after repeated patch jobs by hsa’s tech’s). That was on May 9th. Here in the South, the temperature had already begun climbing into the 90’s & I couldn’t get a straight answer from them. My original contractor LEFT THE COUNTRY on a family emergency, & NO ONE informed me that I was without anyone to complete the job, which by the way was suppose to be an emergency repair. Had I not stayed on top of things, I’d have never known that my claim had been sitting idle! Their own reps had no idea what was going on & they continued to insist that the “parts had been ordered”. They finally assigned another contractor to the claim & then they want the claimant to bombard the contractor with calls when they know that they haven’t paid for the parts (which he hasn’t received to complete the job) so that you won’t bother them. Needless to say, my family & I were without benefit of a/c for well over a month because of their inept handling of the claim. They don’t fail to tell you about the “deductible” though. Then they had the gall to have a sales rep phone me to try to get me to renew my contract before it expires next month!! Seriously?? No one EVER knows what is going on with your claim & there is always someone else at fault for delays, when they haven’t paid the warehouse for the parts needed to complete the job. Mine was paid 5 days before the job was finally done. So the lies they’d been telling about it being shipped to the contractor all along came to light. I waited from May 9th until June 12th. How’s THAT for a “good value & great customer service”??? NOT!!!!

    No notes available on my claim when having service provider out for the 3rd time. Did not approve the replacement that the technician recommended- without fridge and freezer for over a week- lost all groceries within, and they suggested finding another appliance company (which I needed to find on my own and pay without guarantee of reimbursement from HSA) if I wanted someone to come back on a Saturday when the fixes failed. What was the point if they are not able to do what you’ve paid them to do? There excuse for not having another company to send out- “we are based out of Wisconsin”

    Don’t bother with HSA. They recently denied my claim for equipment that was installed when the house I purchased was originally built. Their ridiculous justification not only goes directly against the entire reason for having a home warranty but squarely contradicts the policy they, themselves, have written.

    I recommend looking for a more reputable company.

    I have very expensive mechanical systems that are costly to repair and replace. In that case I am able to save on the costs of repairing my electrical appliances and other home appliances. The HAS Home Warranty is a life saver.
