NORWALK, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HomeServe USA (HomeServe), a leading provider of home emergency repair service plans, today announced its wholly-owned subsidiary, Home Emergency Insurance Solutions (“HEIS”), will be relaunching its optional Water Service Line Insurance plans as home protection plans (Plans) to more than 425,000 households across the state of California. A mailing outlining the new benefits of the Plans is being delivered to homeowners throughout the state this week.
HomeServe is relaunching in California in light of changes approved in a recent filing with the California Department of Insurance that allow HomeServe to offer California homeowners more simplified plans with less exclusions, and also transition from insurance coverage to home protection plans. These Plans will be offered to new customers, and to current insurance holders upon their renewal.
HEIS is already an established insurance provider to more than 213,000 homeowners in California who hold 326,000 insurance plans. Those plans, such as Water Line Service, Sewer Line Service, Interior Plumbing and Drainage, help residents manage expensive repairs that are not typically covered by homeowners insurance. When a repair is needed, HomeServe works with a network of local, licensed and insured California-based technicians to get the job done, and covers the costs under the plans.
“Our mission at HomeServe is to free our customers from the worry and inconvenience of home emergencies, so we are always looking for ways to improve our products and make them easier to understand and use for our customers,” said Tom Rusin, CEO of HomeServe USA . “In California we are doing this by simplifying our Terms & Conditions and eliminating call limits. With our trusted plans in place, our customers can be confident that HomeServe will be there to protect them in the event of a home emergency. On average, a HomeServe California customer receives service under our existing plans about every 30 minutes of every day.”
HomeServe’s new Water Service Line Plan for California homeowners provides guaranteed repairs up to $12,000 in coverage annually for $4.95 per month, and allows for unlimited service calls.
