Pet insurance is becoming more and more popular in Australia. It offers you peace of mind as it covers some or all of the treatment costs if your pet gets involved in an accident or suffers a sudden illness. There is no equivalent of Medicare for pets, so treatment costs can exceed out-of-pocket expenses for a similar condition in a human.
There are many insurance companies that offer pet insurance. Some new companies are also utilising a GapOnlyTM service. GapOnly™ reviews and calculates your pet insurance claim while you’re still at the vet. You simply pay the gap (the difference between the vet’s invoice and the claim benefit under your policy) and go!
If you are unsure if your pet insurance company has this ability, please contact our staff for further information.
