Satisfied Customer

I decided to get some pet insurance after adopting a six-year-old rescue dog. I had to undergo a lot of initial screening and testing for her and subsequent care. I’ve had nothing but a good experience with MetLife and I am glad I decided to get this insurance.

Claim Processing takes a while, slow to respond

Claim processing always takes minimum 2 weeks and sometimes more. They are fairly slow to reply to email as well when it’s about claims. So far they’ve been reimbursing claims as expected but it’s just a very long wait. Also sometimes the agent on the phone is just wrong. I’ve asked if I could submit a claim for a past policy, and they said I couldn’t. However that wasn’t true, so long as the claim is made within 90 days of service and the past policy was active during that service date, it should be accepted.

Impressive

I find that Met Life processes my claims in a reasonable amount of time and refunds are processed quickly. I've never needed to call them for any of my claims.
