A Pet Parent Asks:
When I go to the veterinarian, what should I bring to show that my puppy is insured?
ASPCA Pet Health Insurance Answers:
Actually, you don’t need to verify your pet’s coverage to your veterinarian at all to be reimbursed for treatment. You may visit any licensed veterinarian in the US or Canada—including specialists and emergency clinics. Your veterinarian does not have to “accept” our insurance in any way for you to use it.
Some of our customers choose to cut off the top portion of the first page of their insurance packet and bring this to the veterinarian with them. This section contains encapsulated information regarding the coverage including the certificate number, pet name, coverage type and coverage limits. However, this is simply for your reference.
With our pet insurance, our goal is to make the whole process very easy for you and your veterinarian. You pay your veterinarian for services and then submit a claim form with receipts to us for reimbursement. This supports a direct relationship between you and your veterinarian.
