Original review: Oct. 18, 2018

I've had ASPCA pet insurance for many years. It has been okay. Recently I noticed that they had raised the cost of the premium from $33 a month to $43. When I called, the very pleasant representative informed me that my cat's older age now required the extra charge. When I told her that my cat was not that old, she checked, admitted to their mistake and promised I would see the reduction in the next billing. No reimbursement for the overcharge, but okay, I accepted that. So, next billing, same overcharge.

Called again and was told that the reduction back to the CORRECT amount couldn't happen till the next CYCLE (whatever that means) which would be in nine months. So basically, I could take it or leave it. My cat now has a pre-existing condition, or I would immediately drop this company. They have nothing to do with the ASPCA but pay a fee to be linked to that name. Not really ethical and definitely misleading. There are better companies. Go elsewhere.

Every time I’ve had to call customer service they have been so nice and so helpful. I had to file a couple of claims and they were taken care of with no problems no hassles. The claims were payed within 20-30 days after filing them. I’m very happy with this company.

I've had my yearling gelding insured with the ASPCA Pet Health Insurance for almost a year now and have had nothing but a great experience. I was skeptical of equine insurance prior to this experience but this company made it affordable and easy to use. I've recommended it to friends and neighbors.

After submitting claims noticed the Rabies Vaccine was not reimbursed. I called and what was explained to me was it is not covered because the first Lymes vaccine was reimbursed, so either the first Lyme vaccine is covered or the rabies but not both. I think that is unfair, totally different diseases. In my opinion this is something that should be discussed and corrected.

We are happy with the quality of insurance and amount of reimbursement we receive. However, we’d appreciate the turn around time to decrease considering we sometimes have to put out hundreds of dollars and then wait more than a week for reimbursement.

Company was slow to pay. Once they started paying we were very pleased. I had to continue to call weekly to get the process completed. Part of the issue was my Vet being on vacation for 3 weeks. With continued focus and follow up I got paid.

It seemed to be taking a long time for our first claim to go through. Once we called they were able to give us an update and within days it was processed and the rest of our claims processed soon after. Customer service was great when we called!

Insurance is expensive, but we have never had a problem using the insurance. Our Reese is a very good dog, and a great addition to our family. We have used the insurance four times, and no complaints. We are glad we have this insurance.

Getting pet insurance through ASPCA is the best thing you can do for your pet. Their process for submitting claims is quick and easy and turnaround time is under 10 business days. I recommend this to everyone I see with dogs.

Our cat had to have emergency surgery a few months ago and the claim took over a month to process. That was a very long time to go without the thousands of dollars we spent on his surgery. We had to call several times to move along the process as well. I fear that if we never pushed the process along, we might still be without our claim money. I would love it if ASPCA would pay claims up front.

My claim process was fast and easy. The check was sent directly to my vet. What I liked the best about this experience was receiving a call from ASPCA to check on my pet's health. That was a very nice gesture.

Original review: Sept. 13, 2018

My husband & I adopted the most adorable St. Bernard puppy in May, 2018, he was 3 mos old when we brought him home, we named him Ziggy. Unbeknownst to us Ziggy's fun, carefree life would be quickly interrupted at the age of 5 mos. He came down with some unknown illness that first presented as lameness and quickly morphed into bacterial infection throughout his little body to the point where he was in severe distress. From mid-July to early August our days were spent taking Zigg back to emergency vet hospital (he was hospitalized 3 separate times) and each time still the Vets were not sure he would survive this ordeal. Primarily because he was a puppy and his immune system not fully developed. We had many scary sad nights, but throughout it our Vets never gave up hope they would find what was wrong with Zigg.

Happily today, Zigg has been home (for more than a month) and is well on his way to recovering. His diagnosis finally came that he had the dog version of MRSA (serious bacterial infections). Through all of this, we never once lost any sleep on how we were going to pay for Zigg's care. We found out luckily, that the breeder we adopted Zigg from had never canceled his ASPCA Pet Insurance. His coverage was for accidents/injury and paying up to 90% of bills. Submitting my claims for reimbursement was one of the easiest things I have ever done (too bad human health insurance isn't this simple). Went to the website, uploaded receipts, doctor's reports. ASPCA representatives emailed me immediately stating claims were received, and kept me informed of how they were progressing. ASPCA reps contacted the Vet directly, I did not have to be an intermediary.

My first set of claims were reimbursed (at 90%) within 2 weeks of submission, my 2nd set within 1 week. I cannot stress enough the fact that we were dealing with life threatening issues with our baby boy was beyond stressful. NOT having to have to worry about how we were going to pay for his care was beyond a miracle. Going thru what we have with Zigg, I realized I needed to get coverage for my 2 older dogs, Clay & Finn (Golden Retrievers - 8 & 5 years of age). Now I know I will never worry about caring for their medical needs in the future. If it ever occurs again, I know ASPCA will handle everything for us and all we have to do is focus on getting our babies well.

And on a separate note, whenever I did call ASPCA with questions or concerns, their very first question upon identifying me was "How is Ziggy?". It was incredible to have such care and concern with a representative whose job (really is to sell insurance). But the folks on the phone were truly caring and were concerned and you could feel it, it was not at all insincere. And even now almost a month since my last submission they were calling to follow up and see how Ziggy was doing, it was like talking to friends. I know there are many people who do not understand the connection we have with our pets, they are our family and to many of us "our children". And like any parent we love talking about our child, the folks at ASPCA understand this and are happy to hear our stories.

I'd like to start by stating this is not meant as an angry rant, rather an informed warning to anyone else thinking about "donating" to this insurance company. We have 2 rescue bull terriers, being rescue there is never any guarantee of pedigree and consequently one of the girls is not the healthiest. We have submitted 4 claims for her and 2 for her sister, we have been denied every claim. Between them had cherry eye, allergies, bacterial build up, vomiting and ear infection. Only one denial was valid and we were caught by a pre existing condition. The others were genuine illness but were denied all the same for a mix of false pre existing and outright nonsensical answers. To me if illness is covered and your dog is ill you would expect insurance to come through. I shall now be saving the $80 per month we donate to this insurance company and instead save it up for any future vet bills. Do not use this company, they only take.

ASPCA Pet Health Insurance response

Hi Grant,

Like other pet insurance providers, we do not cover pre-existing conditions. That being said, however, with our plans a new instance of a pre-existing condition may be covered in the future if 180 days have passed since it was cured and treatment free.

ASPCA pet health insurance has been so helpful. The process to submit claims is quick and simple, allowing me to receive refunds in a short amount of time. I have received many calls checking in on my pet's well-being when I was filing multiple claims in a short amount of time, which is appreciated. With such a great experience, I would recommend this insurance to others.

Thought plan was great until I needed to use it. Claim was denied as illness was diagnosed at the end of the plan period and treatment extended into the next year plan period. The plan will only cover cost for illness which manifests itself within a plan period. You cannot forecast when your dog will get a disease and need treatment. This insurance is totally useless for me as my dog will need treatment for the rest of her life and insurance will not pay for any of it. After 10 years of paying into a level 3 plan I have canceled it as it is of no use to me.

ASPCA Pet Health Insurance is simply the best. They have the best customer service... Their team actually makes personal phone calls to check on you and your pet. And they really care. Their app is super easy to use. Claims are simple to submit, and the reimbursements are very fair. I recommend pet insurance to every pet owner, and specifically insurance through ASPCA!

Started a little slow, with all the processing but after everyone got coordinated (ASPCA, Vet and Me) things have been great since. Highly recommended cause pets can be very expensive to care for correctly. As a puppy, Sadie, had some early age issues and ASPCA help to cover the expense of getting her "right".

Unfortunately, we have had to use this insurance MANY times for ALL kinds of crazy reasons, circumstances and health scares. I am glad when I was looking at pet insurance that I first of all decided to definitely purchase it and that we did so through the ASPCA. They are caring and quick and NEVER has argued a claim, paying everytime. They care about your pet and always follow up to see if they are feeling better. Best decision besides picking this particular dog to fall in love with, was picking this insurance to care for him.

I signed my 9 year old dachshund Winston up with ASPCA on August 1st 2016 with no preexisting conditions. Winston was healthy until June 2018 when he was diagnosed with Lymphoma (a quick growing cancer that has a prognosis of two months). For the first time in his life he had an illness that was severe & needed treatment. I was thankful I had put so much money into ASPCA to help prolong or save Winston’s life. However, because of ASPCA’s FINE PRINT, they do not reimburse continued treatment after the renewal date (because I started my pet insurance on August 1st, they refuse to reimburse should his treatments continue beyond this date, although the yearly limit they claim they will reimburse is $3,000).

This violates the agreement that I & many others might assume as they CLAIM to provide reimbursement for bills accrued due to illness, accidents, etc. Additionally, I am now paying even MORE based on the interest that has accrued on my credit card with claims taking 4+ weeks to clear (while also receiving up to $300 less on each claim submitted). This is a grave injustice that I feel I have experienced at the detriment of my pet’s lifespan.

They are not worth it. They find any part to call it pre existing. They don’t call and ask questions. They send letters of denial and assume you’re being dishonest. You appeal it, then they still deny it for another reason. They are rip off. Not worth the investment.

They really care about your pet. Their App makes it very simple to not only submit a claim but check on the claim. It's all so very easy. It seems a bit pricey at first but if you do the research you will see that they offer more. You get what you pay for and the price for me is worth my fur-babies health.

I never knew that pet insurance existed until I wound up with a sickly pup. ASPCA pet insurance is understanding and prompt with every claim. They even check up on your pup after you file one! My own insurance doesn't even do that. Reimbursing claims for everything from cellulitis to allergies, I really appreciate everything they do.

My experience with ASPCA animal insurance has been extremely positive thus far. Upon calling and asking questions about either the plan or what it includes or excludes, in addition to questions corresponding a claim, I am always greeted by a friendly and knowledgeable customer service representative. Moreover, I have always received a follow-up call from one of their team members, checking in on the health of my puppy, when she has fallen ill. Which is such a grand personal touch. It’s greatly appreciated at a pet-parent. I have recommended ASPCA pet insurance to others, and feel confident that I will continue using to myself for my dog.
