I have had multiple pets insured with Pets Best for many years and currently have 4 cats and 1 dog insured. Previously, turnaround time was fairly quick...then it slowed to weeks. Contacting Customer Service used to be a pleasure...it is now a disaster. (Unless you're calling sales; then no wait time whatsoever). No representatives available, referrals to an email address that is non-existent or referral to a "chat" which is inoperative.While I recognize that the current pandemic has affected many companies, that excuse will only work to a point.
My 14 -year old cat's premium just went from $1079 annually, with quarterly payments of $269. to $1,605 with $401 quarterly payments (and that's WITH a multi-pet discount!). I emailed and faxed a 7/22/20 claim to a representative named Tamra on 7/24, since my claim of 7/22/20 never received a quick email acknowledgment, as had previously been the custom.Tamra assured me that she would get back to me to let me know that the claim had been received (saying that there were currently "bugs" in Pets Best email system. Thus far....crickets!
I have previously recommended this company to anyone asking for a reasonable and responsive pet insurance company. I would never be able to recommend this company again. Since my current pets are either up in age or have developed conditions which would be considered pre-existing, I am stuck with the ridiculous increases and incompetence of a company for which I used to have the highest regard.
