To which you replied, Maybe, it depends on the state.

Apparently it also depends on whether the plan is employee-sponsored. Employee sponsored welfare plans tend to be covered under ERISA, same as a 401(k). This includes employee-sponsored HSAs. So if the HSA is with your employer, you likely have the same federal protections as your 401(k). If you had to go find your own HSA, you're dependent on the state. (I've had both.) BTW even if your state protects IRA assets, there's a good chance they don't protect HSA assets.
