I had a wonderful beautiful Boxer who died of cancer in 6/06 I spent over $7,000 in her care in a 6 month time span so when I got another boxer I decided insurance is a must they made lots of promises but have never done much of anything in reimbursements...

never really had problems, definitely slow payment on claims... they dont actually cover a lot according to the 80% of THEIR reasonable and customary rates. Vaccination coverage is NOT worth it, better off paying that out of pocket. Premiums going up a...

After researching numerous companies, I found this one to be perfect! Although it is a fairly new company (2004), they are very straight-forward with their published pricing! No hidden issuance fees or fee schedules, and their deductible is only $50! Very...

Petplan is definitely not worth your money. They are constantly increasing my premiums and their annual deductibles increased to $500 as my dog got older! I'm totally unhappy with the product. Do your research before you enroll because there are better...

I chose PetPlan because their coverage seemed a lot more extensive than other carriers. If you are shopping, watch out for things like exclusions of genetic/hereditary conditions and payments based on fee schedules or the insurance company's definition...

I would say most all of the people that said they don't pay good and it takes forever are correct. I have kept track of all my phone calls and have enough for a book now. They keep adding on how long it takes to process your claims and now it is up to...

Not worth it. I have had 3 pets covered for over 5 years. I paid for the highest coverage. Most times when you need it the procedure was not covered (check the small print). It was running me appox. $75 per month. Terrible. Not worth it.

We bought the insurance and were disappointed from the first time we needed to use it. We needed to have surgery on our dog and were told that it wasn't covered. With the exception of her annual shots and a trip to the emergency room for a stomach...
