...at the policy renewal date unless you have a "continuing care endorsement," which for us was an additional $7. But don't be too reassured. This endorsement may not provide as much coverage as the rest of your plan. So beware. We missed out with one cat, never imagining this could happen, and insurance-speak is not always easy to understand. So coverage can end in the midst of the healing process, or at the very beginning if the injury or illness occurs at the end of the plan year.
The coverage levels are good for us otherwise, and service has been prompt.
