Cat insurance costs will vary depending on several factors, but at Petplan, we keep things simple for cat owners. We offer flexible reimbursement options to meet your budget and cat's needs. Just take note of the following factors that may affect your pet insurance cost:
Winston's vet bill
Cinnamon's vet bill
John & David paid
Jessie the Tabby
Even though both cats are indoors only, we got Petplan early on. When Jessie was just 20-months-old, we found her hiding and vomiting. It turns out she had a ruptured bladder and required emergency surgery to live. We called Petplan to make sure the tests and surgery would be covered. It was such a relief to authorize the go-ahead. Once it was all said and done, the cost to save Jessie’s life was $5,075 and of that, Petplan reimbursed us $4,167.
Freya the Domestic Longhair
We had pet insurance before, but I thought we could do better. Petplan’s coverage was more inclusive and I liked that we could set our own coverage amount. Petplan also covered more when it came to accidents. You could tell everyone loves their job and that ultimately translated to the customer service we received. When something happens to your pet, you don’t want to worry about the cost. Pet insurance has been such a lifesaver for us with both of our fur babies.
Accidental injuries & illnesses
Petplan provides coverage for the reimbursement of veterinary fees due to injury and illness—including coverage for hereditary and chronic conditions as standard.
Laboratory and diagnostic testing—including specialized chemistry and blood work—are covered if they are part of treating or diagnosing a coverable injury or illness.
Veterinary exam fees
The cost of any exam conducted by a licensed veterinarian—including emergency and specialty vets—to treat or diagnose an ill or injured pet.
Medications prescribed by your veterinarian as a treatment for an illness or accident are covered, including nutraceuticals. Vitamins and preventives are not covered.
Imaging & ultrasound
Imaging deemed medically necessary by a licensed veterinarian to help diagnose or treat your pet, including MRI costs. CAT scans and ultrasounds are covered.
Petplan is proud to offer coverage for veterinary oncology care and cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
Non-routine dental treatments
Petplan will cover non-routine dental treatments such as broken teeth or periodontal disease provided your pet's teeth have been checked by a vet within 12 months of your policy's effective date of coverage and any recommended treatment was carried out.
Surgery & rehabilitation
Any surgical procedures or rehabilitation prescribed by a licensed veterinarian as part of a treatment protocol and performed at a veterinary facility.
Holistic therapies—such as veterinary acupuncture, homeopathic therapy and chiropractic treatment—are covered, provided the treatment is recommended and administered by a licensed vet.
Referral & specialist treatment
All specialties including surgery, oncology, cardiology, ophthalmology, dermatology, dentistry and neurology are covered.
Routine & wellness care
Unlike a wellness plan which covers routine care such as teeth cleaning, neutering/spaying and vaccinations, dog insurance pays you back for the unexpected care needed for injuries and illnesses.
Any treatment, service or procedure, including but not limited to physical examinations, medications, surgeries, inoculations or laboratory procedures for the purpose of prevention of illness or injury or for the promotion of general health, where there has been no injury or illness.
Like all pet insurance providers, Petplan cannot cover a medical condition which first occurred or showed clinical sign or symptoms before the effective date of your policy or during the policy waiting period.
Elective or specialty procedures, including but not limited to tail docking, dewclaw removal, eyelash removal, ear cropping, spaying or neutering elective gastroplexy and more, unless requested by a veterinarian to treat a covered injury or illness.
Any costs associated with an injury to a person or property damage caused by a pet.
