What is Pet Insurance for Dogs and Cats?

Pet insurance for dogs and cats is a financial safety net that helps cover the eligible costs of veterinary care. It typically includes coverage for various medical expenses, such as emergencies, surgeries, and treatments for unexpected illnesses or accidents.  

Pet parents typically pay a monthly premium, and in return, the insurance plan helps offset the potential costs associated with their pet’s unexpected accidents or illnesses. This coverage can help provide peace of mind and helps ensure that pet parents can make medical decisions based on their pet's needs rather than financial constraints.

Pet Insurance FAQs

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

What is a Pre-Existing Condition?

 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.

Plans provided by Spot do not cover pre-existing conditions. However, with pet insurance 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.

How are My Pet Insurance Premiums Calculated?

In general, your premium is based on your pet’s age, your pet’s breed, and where your pet lives. Some other factors that impact your premium are: the plan you choose, your deductible, your reimbursement percentage, if you have included preventative care coverage or not, and the discounts for which you are eligible.

What Happens to My Pet Insurance if I Move?

If you move within your current state, you are able to adjust your address via the “Account Information” section in the Spot Customer Portal. You will also need to update your billing address there as well.

Note: your premium may change based on your new zip code.

If you are moving to a new state, please contact the Customer Service team at 1.800.905.1595. The Customer Service team will need to assist in updating your policy for your new state.

Do Plans Provided by Spot Have a Money-back Guarantee?

Plans provided by Spot offer a 30-day money-back guarantee, so feel free to take a look and see what a SPOT plan can do for you and your pet. If, within the first 30 days of your policy you wish to cancel, you can get a full refund of the premium amount.  The 30-day money-back guarantee is available if no claims have been covered.  It’s not available in NY or ME.

Does Pet Insurance Cover Spaying and Neutering?

Spot’s Platinum Preventive Care plan option reimburses up to $150 on spaying/neutering with no deductible. The Platinum Preventive Care plan is available as an add-on to your base level plan for $24.95/month and provides a total annual benefit of $450 in routine care allowance.
