Your top questions answered
Why are there exclusions on my pet's policy?
Pet insurance is designed to protect you from the unexpected. If your pet had any signs or symptoms of a medical issue arise prior to coverage, then it would not be considered unknown or unexpected, and would be viewed as a pre-existing condition. Depending on if the condition is likely to be chronic, like arthritis, then a permanent exclusion would be placed on your pet’s policy. This would mean that any claims related to arthritis would not be eligible for coverage. If a condition could have potentially been a one-time occurrence, such as a bout of vomiting, it is likely that this would be a temporary exclusion of 6 or 12 months. Provided that there is no reoccurrence of the condition within this time period, you will be able to have your policy reviewed and request that the exclusion be removed.
It’s important to consider ALL potential accidents or illnesses that can arise in your cat or dog’s lifetime. While you may have some exclusions on your policy, you will still benefit from receiving coverage for a number of other incidents or conditions. If you need more clarity on the exclusions on your policy, please call us to discuss your particular case.
What is a deductible?
A deductible is the annual amount that you are responsible for paying before we make a reimbursement under your policy. Your deductible only needs to be fulfilled once every 12 months and is only paid if you make a claim.
What is a co-pay?
The co-pay is the percentage of what you pay vs what we pay, before your deductible (if unfulfilled), for each claim you make. We call it “your share”. With Pets Plus Us Accident coverage, your share is 20%. With Accident & Illness, you can choose your share - 10%, 20%, or 30% - as well as your annual deductible, allowing you to ensure your plan works for you and your budget.
Will you drop my coverage if my pet gets old or sick?
As long as your pet has Pets Plus Us coverage, we will never cancel his or her policy due to age or claims. We understand that pets can develop a chronic illness and need lots of care (just like humans), so all Pets Plus Us Accident & Illness coverage comes with our 4Life Guarantee. That means once your pet is enrolled for coverage, his or her benefits are automatically guaranteed to renew each year. The only cost increase you’ll see is when the cost of veterinary care increases.
