Out of 10

I took out policies for our six cats, and I thought I was signing them up with a company that would pay on eligible claims. I've learned that this is not the case. One of our cats got a urinary tract infection, and then she had a life threatening violent reaction to the antibiotic I gave her. We rushed her to the emergency vet clinic which was over 45 miles away at 1 a.m., all the while praying that she would hang in there until we got there. It was a very frightening experience and I was thankful that I had signed her up for insurance a few months earlier so that the expense was one less thing I needed to worry about. I was confident that she would be covered, after all, the Pets Best web site states that once a urinary infection has been cured, it is no longer considered a pre-existing condition. Her last infection was over 6 months ago, and after being treated for it, she had a culture done that showed she had been cured. So imagine my surprise and anger when Pets Best denied my claim, stating that they considered it a pre-existing condition! I couldn't believe it!!! And then they ignored the first four emails I sent to them when I asked for an explanation. I will be filing a complaint with the Better Business Bureau tomorrow.
