Horrible experience

The insurer kept contacting the veterinarian, asking for the same information over and over, which was provided. They would then say the they didn't have enough information to process the claim. It took forever to obtain reimbursement. The office manager at my veterinary hospital spent multiple calls and many minutes trying to satisfy the insurer. I would not recommend them to anyone. I switched to a more expensive provider with a better track record, even though I would lose pre-existing coverage.

After posting this review, Healthy Paws contacted me and rectified the situation. Once you get someone's attention, they were really wonderful! In fact, I would increase my rating, if I could edit it.

Susan - we apologize for any frustration during the processing of your claims.  As per the policy we do require medical records for all enrolled pets in order to process claims. Once full records are received (typically we ask for them when you file your first few claims) we will keep them on file for future claims processing and you will never have to submit full records again. In the future, if we do need clarification for a specific claim, we may simply request the date of service exam notes for that visit. We appreciate your efforts to provide those records. We now have full records on file for your pet and your claim has been completed. You should receive your Explanation of Benefits in the next 24-48 hours.

Highly Recommend

Our dog needed emergency back surgery and Healthy Paws was there from beginning to end. Claim process was super easy and fast. They even emailed to check on her progress and sent their well wishes. Never regretted choosing Healthy Paws 4 years ago.

Best Decision Ever

I would encourage anyone looking for pet insurance to research Healthy Paws. We insured our Bernese Mountain dog puppy after a friend suggested we do. They also had Healthy Paws and had a great experience with them. We literally had the insurance for less than 48 hours when our puppy collided with our other dog full speed and injured her shoulder. Healthy Paws was with us every step of the way and the claim process is so easy. Definitely the best decision we could have made was to choose Healthy Paws.
