Easy claims for diagnostic tests and treatments

It was such a relief having Healthy Paws Insurance when over the span of three weeks our cat needed multiple emergency vet visits with diagnostics tests and treatments for stomach issues and newly developed seizures. Being able to say yes to the recommended tests, treatments, and knowing we're doing everything possible for her was a silver lining on the stressful time. We're so glad we made the decision to get insurance when we adopted her a few years ago and would recommend doing so to any pet owner. And now having gone through the process with Healthy Paws we'd never choose anything else.

Easy, fast, compassionate animal lovers

We've had Healthy Paws coverage for our dog for years, and they've been outstanding at providing quick, easy reimbursements for medical issues. This year our dog got very sick with an aggressive form of cancer, and we wouldn't have been able to afford the necessary medical treatments without insurance. I've been very impressed at how simple it is to submit a claim and how fast they have provided reimbursement, sometimes even within 24 hours of the medical procedure. I also appreciate that I got a very human message from a HP employee asking how our dog was doing after noticing a series of serious-sounding treatments. I recommend them fully.

Easy to submit claim and very fast turn around

We recently had a very scary emergency with our pup and had to go to the ER in the middle of the night. Thankfully, he is okay! The cost of his emergency visit was very high because they had to do blood work and take X-rays to figure out what was wrong. We immediately submitted the claim and received our reimbursement check within a few days. It was such a relief. Someone also emailed us to see how our pup was doing, which was so nice!

A Savior for My Injured Dog!

I want to express my deep appreciation for Healthy Paws, who came to my rescue when my dog was hit by a car. Healthy Paws was absolutely exceptional. Their compassionate customer service team provided invaluable support during a very distressing time. They processed my claim quickly, ensuring immediate medical care for my dog. Healthy Paws covered most of the medical bills through their "direct pay" service. This meant I was not paying all of it out of pocket and they paid the hospital directly. I highly recommend Healthy Paws to any pet owner. Their care, support, and financial assistance was outstanding and made all the difference in my dog's time of need. Thank you, Healthy Paws, for being a true savior for my beloved dog. Your dedication to pet well-being is remarkable, and we are forever grateful!

Very Good Experience

Our young pembroke welsh corgi developed a chronic gastrointestinal issue. She has had to have many tests and her treatment has been expensive. Healthy Paws has been excellent with extremely fast reimbursement for our expenses. We have been very happy with their service and reliability.
