Pet Insurance

Post  whitestarling on Sat Jul 30, 2011 8:37 am

Mrs S was talking to a freind yesterday, and the conversation got on to Pet Insurance. Her freind told her about a Puppy they had at one time that started vomiting. They took it to the vets, it was a Bank Holiday, but they did'nt want to leave it for a couple of days. The bill for injections, and tablets plus consultation fee came to £200. They put the claim into the Insurers, and recieved a check for £1-75 affraid . When they asked what was going on they were told that the insurance did'nt cover Bank Holiday call outs.
I would suggest those of you with Pet Insurance, check this out with your providers, by letter or email so at least you have it in writing, and know where you stand. It may be a one off, but I think it's worth checking out as we all know the high cost of vetinary care

That's shocking affraid You pay your money to them every month, they take it no problem but the minute you want to make a claim they try and find a way out to not pay you, terrible No

Thats harsh WS but it's always worth reading the small print with any kind of insurance. When they tell you what the insurance covers they always tell you the bits to draw you in, they never tell you about the downside, which unfortunately can be quite a bit.
It's a good message to all of us to read before we sign to any insurance and sadly pet insurance can be one that we rely on but doesn't always pay up.
I hope the puppy is now feeling much better.

Thats what I hate about insurance. You think you are covered and they always seem to have a loop hole to wriggle out of paying. Sometime I think you are better putting your monthly payment into a separate account and the money is there when you need it.

Poor pup. How can you NOT help your pets.
