Top 5 Questions About ASPCA Pet Health Insurance
1. Can I stay with my veterinarian?
Yes! You don’t have to leave your trusted veterinarian or choose from a list of providers. With our pet insurance, you can visit ANY licensed veterinarian in the US or Canada, including specialists and emergency care doctors. This way, your pet is also covered if you’re travelling.
2. How does the deductible work?
ASPCA Pet Health Insurance has a low $100 annual deductible per pet. Our
deductible only needs to be met once per plan year, no matter how many incidents
occur. In contrast, per incident deductibles require you to pay a new deductible
for every single injury or illness, which can really add up. You can also
customize your plan with other annual deductible and co-insurance options.
3. How long does it take to get reimbursed?
We work hard to process our pet insurance claims as quickly as possible.
Turnaround time typically averages two weeks or less. You can track the status
of your claims easily online at our Member Center.
4. What are “usual and customary covered charges”?
These are veterinary costs covered by your plan and considered typical in areas
similar to yours. We use available industry and proprietary data to determine
typical costs. ASPCA Pet Health Insurance plans reimburse 90% of usual and
customary covered charges both to take into account actual treatments performed,
unlike a benefit schedule, and to keep premiums lower.
