Simply the BEST...!!!

To the wise shopper reading reviews: The bottom line: Choosing Healthy Paws insurance is the BEST financial decision I ever made. They are fast processing claims and answering questions, and their website makes everything so easy. I actually tried insurance through 2 other companies, but cancelled when I discovered Healthy Paws superior coverage and reviews. I'm so glad I found Healthy Paws, and I hope I've helped you do the same. It's a purchase you hope you never use, but should that time come, you'll be glad you chose Healthy Paws as your partner.

Very pleased with the handling of my claim.

My beautiful 9 month old frenchie had a severe elongated palate and needed surgery and his nares altered and Healthy Paws not only handled my claim quickly but also kept me it touch as to every aspect of the transaction. They also always asked how my boy was doing and sounded truly concerned. Nice touch!

Healthy Paws Cares

We recently welcomed an adorable little Shi-poo puppy by the name of Bijou into our family . After having her spayed and experiencing sticker shock over the cost of medical care, we decided to purchase a health insurance plan to cover any mishaps or illnesses. We figured we would be paying premiums for several years before having to use the policy - Bijou is a baby, after all. But wouldn't you know it, at the tender age of 8 months, Bijou began to have digestive problems which would not clear up with the ordinary measures suggested. Blood work, x-rays, and ultrasounds were performed to try to find the cause of her troubles. While waiting for further testing, Bijou became very ill. She was playing Frisbee one minute and then unresponsive the next. A trip to the emergency hospital on a weekend was necessary. An overnight stay was ordered where she received IV's and steroids to help her bounce back to her frisky self. During our search for a health plan, we did lots of comparing and we decided to purchase a plan from Healthy Paws Insurance. I faxed bills for the diagnostic work that was performed on Bijou ($1,400). After requesting Bijou's brief medical records from the vet, Healthy Paws paid promptly exacting as promised in their plan. When I went to work from the ultrasound visit, I faxed the bill over to Healthy Paws and by the time I got home from work there was an e-mail advising me that all of her claims had already been processed! The checks were rec

Healthy Paws has been an Incredible support

I am personally overwhelmed by the support we have received from Healthy Paws ("HP). My dog developed a heart valve issue that required many tests and ultimate surgery to open a collapsing heart valve. HP was there with both financial and personal support throughout the process. My puppy seems to be on the road to recovery thanks to great Vets and HP. All claims were processed very rapidly. A great company with a heart.

The best insurance experience I have ever had!

Max was diagnosed on 9/20/12. Those who are familiar with this illness know that it changes the lives of the owner and the pet forever. He lived through the critical 48 hours and Max is one of the lucky ones so far. He is still here after 2 weeks. It's known for being one of the scariest and also one of the most expensive diagnosis' a pet can have and Max will fight it for life.I faxed the first claim (including Max's clinical history) on 9/24-received a confirmation e-mail same day. Rec'd the explanation of benefit letter with amount of reimbursement (accurate to the penny)on 10/1. The check arrived on 10/5. Faxed the second claim on 10/2-again, same day confirmation; EOB letter SAME DAY and received the check on 10/6. Faxed the third claim yesterday on a Sunday-thinking I would get a jump on Monday, but THEY WORK ON SUNDAY. Rec'd the EOB letter Sunday evening. Don't hesitate- this is the best insurance by far. I'm telling everyone who will listen! Just a great company-which has helped get us through this. I honestly don't know what we would have done without them.
