Overall Rating: 5.2 / 10 (Average)

Despite their industry-forward policies, HSA's home warranty service has some elements for concern. For instance, despite its high term limit its appliance cap is unusually low, especially for the price of their most basic contract. Having said that, if generous term limits, midrange service fees, and “the nation’s largest network of professional contractors” are a priority, then HSA may be a good fit.

Contract & Price - 6 / 10

HSA's starting price of $589 for a 12-month contract, makes them the most expensive base-level option on the market. While an exact quote can be generated via an online calculator, we strongly recommend that potential policyholders thoroughly read all the fine print. Once a policy has been activated it is irreversible, since HSA does not offer any sort of cancellation or money-back policies.

Claims & Service - 5 / 10

With their claim of “the nation’s largest network of professional contractors”, HSA aims to provide quick, efficient service. Their service fees range between $75-$100, with no waiting period. Their 30-day recall period, as well as not requiring maintenance records, reflect the company’s wish to make their services easily accessible. Under certain circumstances, HSA’s 24/7 claims department may approve the use of a contractor that operates outside of their network.

Cancellation Policy

The warranty is non-cancelable by either party except for the following: A. The contract fees are not paid. B. Fraud or misrepresentation of facts material to the issuance of this contract. C. If the contract provides coverage for the seller during the listing period and the listing is withdrawn or expires. Should the contract be cancelable under the laws of the state where the contract holder resides, an allowable administrative fee will be charged upon cancellation. HSA may, at its option, decline to issue any renewal or cancel any contract, if the contract fees are not paid within 10 days of the due date.

Im a Realtor and the company I was with has a partnership with HSA. Two of my clients purchased an HSA Home Warranty for $670 each. In my years in the industry, I or previous clients had any issues with other home warranty companies until now. HSA has denied to repair the items that are part of the warranty.
