10/10   Fast claim turn around and great coverage, 10/19/2015

Reviewed By: Dusti Sparks, Recommend: Y

It is easy to tell ourselves during tight economical times that we cannot afford the monthly pet insurance premium. But when you need it, as our Australian Shepherd with cataracts does right now, you will be glad you found a way to do it. Just as for ourselves, pets' - especially aging pets' medical needs must be addressed. We say we love our animals as family. We must provide for them the best we can, and extending quality of life is the way we can do it. Knowing my our dogs are covered by AKC insurance is peace of mind for us.

10/10   Reasonable coverage and fair costs, 8/14/2015

Reviewed By: D. Dingman, Recommend: Y

Our golden Retriever was enrolled with PetPartners at eight weeks and continued until her death at exactly eight years. Claims were easy to submit, either by mail or electronically. Payment was always consistent with the policy coverage and exclusions; so no surprises. I had the very best policy with maximum coverage. At her demise the vet bills exceeded $10,000 of which PetPartners reimbursed me $6,000 and even sent condolences at our loss. This insurance is by no means the least expensive one can buy but over the eight years but they have been consistent and I estimate that we received more than we paid in premiums, especially at the last claim. I plan on using they again for our next puppy in August 2015.

10/10   AKC Insurance is worth it., 7/31/2015

Reviewed By: Paul Huber, Recommend: Y

We have an English Mastiff, female, now 5 and we have had the insurance 5 years. It is good insurance, we have used it. Our Vet is pleased and has no problem doing the minimal paper work with said insurance. WE took out the insurance so our dog sitter would have no issue with money
if something happened to our pup. Proved it self on 3 instances.

10/10   I got exactly what was promised!!!!,
I have had the AKC Pet Healthcare Plan for 3 years. It was brought to my attention thru my registration of my Golden Retriever with the American Kennel Club. I received a 60 day FREE Trial plan and thought that there most be a trick to this. However, they did not ask for a credit card or anyother financial data. In about 45 days I called and enrolled in one of their plans. The first year they paid me… read more

7/10   Quick claim processing,
We have had the AKC policy on both of our dogs for about a year now. We have had no problem submitting claims or receiving payment in a timely fashion. They have paid all claims appropriatly. Our only disappointment was to find that they did not cover congenital diseases such as hip displaysia. We may look into another plan that does cover ALL congenital conditions. Other than that, I would say this is… read more

8/10   THANKFUL to HAVE,
We have a collie that required various tests. She was stumbling, falling, walking like she was drunk or walking into things. It needed to be determined if she had a vision or a neurological problem. The AKC PetPartners Insurance paid for the Eye Specialist and that indicated we needed to have neurological consultation. That consult required an MRI as well as a Spinal Tap. The claim was over $2,000. … read more

9/10   Appreciative of coverage,
We have multiple pets insured by Pet Partners. In particular, Trevar, our Scottie was without major medical issues for many years under his policy, however over the past two years medical issues arose-numerous diagnostics, surgeries, chemo, hospitalizations, etc. Needless to say our veterinary costs was exhorbatant but of course we would do whatever possible for our "Buddy."

4/10   The Claims Processing Predicament,
I've had this Pet Insurance since March when my new puppy came to me as my forever partner to replace my 12-yr-old SD; I've had several visits to the vet and need to process my puppy's claims; it seems impossible to download claim forms from their web sight, and this is bothersome; in responding to the comment whether claims should be processed if more than 90 days go by, to me they should be processed up… read more
