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 was ever involved in an accident or suffers a sudden illness. There is no equivalent of Medicare for pets, thus often treatment costs exceed what an equivalent problem would cost for a human patient.
"My pet is having a procedure, can I claim for it in advance?
Yes. For scheduled procedures, it is possible at our discretion to arrange for the claim to be pre-approved. You will need to provide a detailed quote from your vet. This means that you pay your excess only, and we will settle the bill with your vet for costs covered by the policy up to the amount quoted by the vet. - Vets Choice Pet Insurance."
Did you know that 24 hr emergency care for animals can cost over $1,000 per day? Some surgeries such as repair of fractured bones or exploratory surgery can also add up to thousands of dollars and that does not even include the recovery and aftercare treatment. It is a heartbreaking situation to have to choose between the health of your pet and financial constraints, so for peace of mind we strongly recommend that your pet is insured.

No co-insurance when making a claim
No unexpected financial costs outside of the agreed excess and policy limits, helping keep the pet owner financially in control.
What is co-insurance? Co-insurance is a variable cost payable by the customer when they lodge a claim, where the policy denotes that there are effectively two insurers involved in the claims settlement process, the pet insurer and the pet owner, who then split the payout by a percentage. Vets Choice don't have co-insurance, meaning you get 100% of vet fees back after you pay the excess subject to any applicable limits.
Pre-approval for scheduled procedures and treatments helps avoid the surprise of any unexpected fees.
