Many pet insurance companies do exclude certain criteria on their pet insurance plans, including pregnancy, elective procedures, behaviour issues, defects and pre-existing conditions.

However, all companies differ slightly, to be sure to specify thee requirements in your Hippo search.

More about Per Cover

There is usually no specified age for pets that are insured, however, younger pets can be listed on a higher plan as they have a full life ahead of them, whereas older pets can opt for a lower premium plan.

Pet insurance is viable from day one. Once you have signed your terms and conditions, you have access to your policy immediately.

How to make a Claim

To claim on your insurance, clients would need to pay their vet or clinic upfront, and attach your proof of payment to your vet bill.

This can be emailed or faxed directly to your pet insurance company, for prompt reimbursement of your payment. Payments are paid back to clients in line with the benefit schedule depicted on your insurance plan.

Each Plan Differs

Depending on the one you choose and the premiums you pay each month. Your insurance company will discuss all the options with you in detail, so that your choice is in line with your pets needs.
