Pet Insurance That Eliminates The Pet Insurance Reimbursement Model
Pet insurance is still a relatively new concept for many pet owners. There are many different plans and policies available through many different companies, so it can be overwhelming when deciding what the right company and policy are for you and your pet. Despite the initial work of choosing the correct plan for your situation, the vast majority of our clients who carry pet insurance report they are glad they have it.
Traditionally, pet insurance has required pet owners to pay the cost of veterinary care up front and wait to be reimbursed. This is known as the reimbursement model. It meant a pet owner would take their pet to the veterinarian, pay the full bill, submit a claim to their insurance provider, and wait for a reimbursement check in the mail. Those who couldn’t pay a veterinary bill at the time of service may be unable to provide necessary treatments for their pet. Most companies still operate under this type of policy and Big Lick Vet will work with any of our clients who have pet insurance, no matter the company or policy. But we’re excited to announce that we’ve paired up with Trupanion and are now offering Vet Direct Pay.
Trupanion is revolutionizing the way pet owners are able to approach the costs of veterinary care. With Vet Direct Pay, insurance can pay the hospital directly in minutes, leaving a pet owner with just their portion of the bill at checkout. There are no upfront payments for the full bill, no claim forms to fill out, and no waiting for reimbursement checks.
