Answers about the plan, including eligibility, options, enrollment, customer service and more.
The Whole Pet with Wellness and Major Medical plans have a 14-day waiting period once your application is approved and we receive payment. Pet Wellness plan coverage begins 24 hours after your policy has been issued and we’ve received payment. If you're enrolling as part of a group or organization, effective dates vary.
Never. As long as your pet is enrolled before age 10 and you keep your policy continually in force (translation: don’t let it lapse or expire), we promise not to drop your pet.
Not always. Sometimes we request medical records for clarification so we can ensure you receive all the benefits available under your plan.
We offer monthly and annual payment options and accept credit cards, debit cards and checks. We also accept payment by payroll deduction; ask your employer’s benefits administrator to see if this option is available.

You pay your veterinarian directly and then submit a claim to us. We’ll adjust your claim and reimburse you according to your plan.
Vet Helpline is a free service ($150 value) for all our members. Live veterinarians are available 24/7 to answer general pet questions and help identify urgent care needs. A Vet Helpline consultation is not a substitute for a visit to your primary vet.
