fidelity home warranty hvac coverage

The BBB complaints are not isolated. A quick Google search found hundreds of additional complaints, many with similarities to Torine's experience, many citing confusion over the company's name. We asked CCHS to investigate Torine's case. A few hours later, Torine got a call from the repair company, which said it had a long conversation with an HMS rep. The parts were in and an appointment was set for two days later. Torine said then heard from a CCHS senior claims manager, who said she would be handle everything. The manager also discussed the repair cost. The company would give a $325 "gesture discount," but it would still cost $1,000 to cover the repairs. Torine didn't care anymore. He just wanted the AC fixed. We asked CCHS what happened, but the answer back came from Sears.
