Warmth, Professionalism, and Personal Service

Out of 10

My husband and I wanted to be able to afford to give our rescued Australian Cattle Dog, Sara, the very best care for the rest of her life, so we enrolled her with Healthy Paws Pet Insurance. Approximately two months after signing her up with Healthy Paws in February, I noticed occasionally lameness in her right back leg. I took her to her vet, who examined her and gave the diagnosis of a partial cruciate tear and recommended surgery. (not an unusual injury for very active and athletic dogs). We also consulted with a highly recommended surgeon. He confirmed the diagnosis of Sara’s vet and explained two procedures and gave me estimated costs for each--Cranial Cruciate Ligament Rupture—Modified Retinacular Imbrication Technique (MRIT) (approximately $3000) or Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy (TPLO) (approximately $4000). I submitted the estimates to the Healthy Paws Claims Team. Even though the TPLO was more expensive, they did not hesitate to encourage me to go with the recommendations of the surgeon. Sara had surgery on a Friday. On Monday I submitted the invoice and received a 90% reimbursement within 72 hours…FAST REIMBUREMENT just as they advertise. AND, with an explanation and breakdown that was so easy to follow and understand. And if this isn’t enough, I just learned that hydrotherapy for Sara will also be covered! The Healthy Paws Claims Team was so supportive—they all have pets and are so knowledgeable about everything related to dogs, including this specific surgery
