My poor 2yr old cat had only been covered for a couple of weeks when she broke her leg at 2 AM. I bought HealthyPaws for her because I had checked out this review site in advance, but I was still worried about being denied. The animal hospital I took her to seemed slightly worried too as they'd never submitted a claim to HealthyPaws before.
The hospital called HealthyPaws in the morning and checked to make sure everything would be covered before they started, and HealthyPaws quickly gave them an answer that it would be.
HealthyPaws states it can take 7-10 days to process your first claim as they work to get all of your records in. I made sure the hospital I went to had every record I had from when I adopted the cat. In turn, HealthyPaws had everything they needed and within 24hrs my claim was processed without a single issue.
