I've been a paying customer of a Premium Plan for SIX YEARS at $50 a month. My dog has been relatively healthy for that whole period. Last month, my dog got cancer, to the tune of $2000. A deadly cancer called hemangiosarcoma. She needed bloodwork, cytology report, meds, and ultimately surgery to remove the rapidly growing tumor. When I submitted the expenses, they covered only $560 of my entire bill!!! They told me that my "Premium Plan" was old and had not been updated since 2008 for any adjustments and therefore only this small amount was cover and that they surgery itself was NOT covered. I was outraged! After speaking with the first customer agent, I asked to talk with her supervisor. After getting the run around from the second, I said I wanted to talk to underwriting and they said they do not allow customers to talk to the underwriting department. Then I said I wanted the president's information, so they forwarded me to the "customer advocate" for the president. After 3 very heated calls, she phoned me back the next day and told me that underwriting was correct and that they would not pay any more on my claim. I am canceling my policy.
