out of 10
I have had this policy for six years and am filing my first claim and it has been nothing but a hassle for the last 10 days.
Directions are never clear, no one calls, they send cryptic emails with directions and then ask you for the same thing several times.
Excellent pet insurance. Very easy to use and place a claim. Claims are processed very quickly. You are able to call and speak to a representative, which is wonderful. I love the fact that you have options regarding the cost. Covers many claims that others do not. And the fact that they do not have a lifetime cap is important to me. My big boy, Tripp, has placed a number of claims. Thank you Healthy Paws for giving me peace of mind about my dogs’ health costs.
Covering my cat through PetsBest is the best decision I could have ever made for him and I
I can’t express how grateful I am to PetsBest. First of all, it’s affordable for me each month. Like most people, I’m not made of money but my cat is my baby and I wanted him to be covered if he ever needed it. I work in animal welfare and I know things happen all the time, sudden illnesses, unexpected injuries, even just kitty colds develop. These things just happen and I wanted to be prepared for when they did. Even if you do everything right for your pet, health problems will still arise, they just do. Well 6 months into having this coverage, we needed it. My sweet cat swallowed a piece of one of his toys and it created a blockage in his stomach/intestine. I was worried beyond belief, and knowing emergencies are expensive made it even worse. But I double checked my policy and saw my plan covered emergency expenses. I put the costs on a credit card, knowing I’d be reimbursed later on, and I was able to focus on the well being of my baby. Filing a claim couldn’t be more simple, you literally just take a pic of your receipts and upload it, I did it all on my phone. Within 3 weeks, I was sent a reimbursement check that covered 90% of what I paid at the ER. I couldn’t be more grateful to PetsBest. And I’m happy with myself for choosing to go with them. My cat is doing amazing now. He is only left alone with toys that he can’t chew up, lol. Knowing he is covered for the future helps me sleep easier at night. I plan on adding the wellness plan to my policy when it renews. It costs a little more a month but it is so worth it. I joke and call myself the unofficial spokesperson for this company because I tell everybody about it! I recommend it to everyone I know who has pets. I literally forced my sister and my mom to get coverage for their pets. I told them they won’t be sorry and neither will you!! Thank you PetsBest ♥️
Major injury to neck and back after previous successful back injury.
My awesome Parker is a great dog and my best friend, but has had a rough last two years! He threw out a disc in his back almost two years ago, causing total paralysis in his back legs, which required major surgery to five of his vertebrae/discs. The operation was very successful and Healthy Paws covered almost everything at 80%. That was awesome, since we could not have afforded to bring my best friend back without Healthy Paws. Sadly, after returning almost to his original happy and active self, we were involved in a major truck accident going off into the woods on black ice a month ago, where he was thrown into the back of the seat and lay helplessly paralyzed upside down on the floor. I gently got him out and wrapped him up in survival blankets in the snowy and remote woods (at 18 degrees it was cold!) while we waited for help. The truck was totaled, so some friends gave me a ride to rent a car and I rushed him to the nearest First Pet Animal hospital, and then to the same surgical center he had had his back surgery at. Miraculously, he's once again recovering on medication and physical therapy, and so far without additional surgery on the injured cervical vertebrae. I just deposited the second reimbursement check from Healthy Paws, and they once again covered almost all the costs at the promised 80%. They've been incredibly responsive and financially there for me (and Parker!), and have shown genuine interest in Parker's recovery each time. We couldn't have afforded to help my best friend without them, returning him once again to an active and happy life, and I'm very grateful. Of all the financial decisions I've made in life, Healthy Paws has been one of my best!
Makes giving my dogs the best possible care no problem
Healthy paws has been great. I got it for one of my dogs when he was a pup, the other was a little other.. to me its a no brainer. Over 10 years you may spend 5-10k or so on the insurance, but once the dog is older its much more likely to have complications come up that cost way more than that, and at one time also.. my dogs are both older now, 7 and 8, And i have had probably around 10k in vet bills already at this point. Healthy paws reimburses 80-90% of the bill and pretty quickly usually within a week. This gives me confidence that i can do whatever is needed to take care of my pups. Shelling out 20k for extreme surgeries when your pup is older could be impossible and heart breaking, but with healthy paws, knowing i will be reimbursed i am ready to do whatever is necessary to give my pups the best possible care.
Thanks healthy paws!
I was given my dog Bobby, a rescue, in December. Since then Bobby has had several health issues. Bobby required two hospitals visits, and I would not have been able to take him to the hospital without insurance. I had to take a care credit out, but at least. I will receive half of my money- since I had insurance.
My golden needed TPLO (knee ligament) surgery on both of his rear legs. Total cost of the surgeries was around 10k. Healthy paws paid their share with no hassles. Filing was really easy with their phone app (just take a picture of the paid invoice and send it to them) and they had good response time, even during COVID.
Your policy on the appeal process is not very friendly.
Your policy on the appeal process is not very friendly. I was charged two deductibles for the same situation and now I have to jump through the hoops of getting a letter from the vet when trupanion could have contacted the clinic directly to clarify the matter . The doctor agrees with me that I shouldn't have been charged two deductibles.
