Pet Insurance FAQs

Have questions about petinsurance and how it works? Let’s dig up an answer.

Are pre-existing conditions covered by pet insurance?

Plans provided by Spot do not cover pre-existing conditions.

A pre-existing condition is any injury or illness which occurs or shows symptoms before coverage starts or during a waiting period. A condition is considered pre-existing whether or not it’s been officially diagnosed or treated; all that matters is when it occurred or symptoms first displayed.

However, with plans provided by Spot, this doesn’t mean the condition can’t be covered in the future if the condition is curable. An injury or illness that is curable, cured, and free of treatment and symptoms for 180 days will no longer be regarded as pre-existing, with the exception of knee and ligament conditions. If a knee or ligament condition occurs before the coverage effective date or during a waiting period, any future ones won’t be covered.

Are there any Types of Incident or Lifetime Caps?

With accident & illness plans provided by Spot, there is no type of per incident limits or lifetime caps.

Are there Any Age Limits?

You can enroll your pet in a plan provided from Spot once your pet is 8 weeks old or older. There is no upper age limit for coverage or enrollments.

There are certain features that you, as a pet parent should look for while selecting a pet insurance plan for your pet. These can include – the type of plans offered, price, benefits offered, claim reimbursement process, and an informative website, to name a few.
