Your initial coverage ends after 30 days unless you choose to continue the policy by providing a payment method. When you continue the policy with a customizable plan, you will not experience any gaps in coverage and will already be on your way to meeting the 365-day pre-existing condition coverage waiting period (Not available in all states). Or for maximum protection, enroll in a custom plan starting day one. Start a quote to see your policy options.
Since veterinarians do not accept insurance like human doctors, pet insurance works on a reimbursement basis. You pay your veterinarian as normal, get your itemized invoice, and submit a claim form and invoice to us. We will reimburse you for eligible expenses once your deductible has been met. Reimbursement is subject to coinsurance amount and maximum limits.
