very caring and helpful

My cat had four teeth pulled and I send the claim right in and they paid most of the bill and called to check how all three cat were. I was very impressed my own doctor doesn't call to check on me

Easy and Efficient.

We have an 8 month old Labrador and purchased insurance for preventive as well as emergency based on a recommendation from a friend. A puppy visits the vet very frequently in their first year and it was great to have some of that cost reimbursed. Our puppy injured her leg and needed x-rays and medication and a large portion of that expense was also reimbursed. Hartville has been very easy to use and extremely quick on the reimbursement. I would highly recommend this service.

So far so good!

This is my first experience with a pet insurance company. The CSRS are friendly and knowledgeable. The only reason I didn't rate a 10 is that my first claim took over a month to be paid, but after that the claims have been satisfied quickly.

Quick and compassionate response in an emergency

Hartville Pet Insurance was amazing when my cat Fishy had to be rushed to the emergency vet for acute urinary blockage. Knowing that they would cover 90% of my vet costs after a $100 deductible, I was able to confidently and quickly get the care that Fishy needed without hesitation that I wouldn't be able to afford it. Even after I was handed a $1300 bill, I knew I had no reason to fear because I had been able to speak with an insurance agent earlier that day to confirm that the charges would be covered. Additionally, every time I speak with a representative of this company, they always ask after the health of my pet first, before ever mentioning the business I call or email about. As a grad student with a cat who's never been 100% healthy, Hartville has been a literal life-saver for Fishy and my bank account at a monthly premium that I can afford. I have recommended Hartville to everyone I know with pets and when we bring home a second cat later this year, I will be immediately signing her up for an insurance plan of her own. It breaks my heart when friends and family have to set-up crowdfunding accounts to cover their vet bills when pet insurance is such an easy alternative, especially with Hartville Pet Insurance.

Simple as it is!

Prompt processing, a variety of selections to suit your pet's needs. I own a 15 yr cat, she sees her vet every 1 or 2 months and no hassle. You pay then you file a claim, you then see the reimbursement in your bank account. This is the only pet insurance I ever have had, they are good enough so not looking to switch.

Rates start at: $10 (for accident only), $16 (Complete Coverage). Rates vary based on species, age, breed, and location.


The pay-out amount is based on the actual vet bill, at a rate pre-selected by the customer: 90%, 80% or 70%
