Scoundrels! I began a policy for my dog in 2006. He tore his ACL on March 17, 2013 and had surgery on Mar. 26, 2013. It just so happened that the plan year for his policy renews annually on Apr. 15, 2013. Because of this date being 19 days after his surgery, ASPCA denied coverage of medications prescribed at his follow up appointments, saying tht it was now a pre-existing condition and none of his further related expenses would not be covered for another 180 days following surgery date. Just when you need them, ASPCA Pet Health Insurance will duck and weave and deny coverage-- blaming you as the pet-owner for not being smart enough to read all their emails and purchase a special endorsement that would have filled in this big loophole the wrote for themselves in the original policy. Honesty and integrity means nothing to these people.
