Do we recommend ASPCA Pet Insurance?

Pet care can be expensive and rarely ever thought of until it is needed. A service like ASPCA’s Pet Insurance can help reduce the cost of an ill-timed vet emergency. With vet costs averaging between $200 - $400 a year, these bills can start to stack up. In the event your pet needs major surgery or emergency care, pet insurance can be the difference between getting your pet the care they need and being forced into tougher monetary decisions.

Original review: Feb. 3, 2020

I've been a bit delayed in submitting a review of ASPCA Pet Health Insurance and should have done so sooner. My husband and I are so glad to have insurance through ASPCA for our 80-lb. toddler/pit bull mix, Zeus. Not long after first getting the policy we experienced a series of scary and unnerving health issues with Zeus, including one that resulted in a very expensive trip to a pet ER and another one not long after that resulted in an (almost equally expensive) emergency trip to what is now his permanent (and absolutely wonderful) vet! I tear up thinking about the anxiety, worry, and stress we dealt with over a period of about 2 months of constant and out-of-nowhere health issues with our baby that resulted in several vet trips and I'm just so grateful to this company for being there for us through such a difficult time.

Claim processing time was a bit delayed in the beginning, but it was mainly because there were lots of moving parts at the time; we had just moved from out of state, got the insurance, needed to communicate with his old vet about sending his health records in and maintain regular communication with ASPCA regarding those preliminary details, and then needed to find him a permanent vet since his first veterinary experience here was at an ER. So there was a lot going on. But each person I spoke to was so kind, caring, and empathetic and really seemed like they genuinely cared about what we were going through and about helping facilitate the process as much as possible.

I never felt like I was getting "the run-around" from anyone, every person I spoke to was very clear in terms of the documentation required for submission before any claims could be processed, the steps they'd need to go through on their end, and about how long they would take to be processed. So I know it's a bit of a hassle to make sure the i's are dotted and the t's are crossed, but really if you stay on top of things sooner than later, you'll avoid being inconvenienced when it matters the most.

For our 2 year old fur baby, the monthly premium cost is also pretty fair both in comparison to other companies we got quotes from and in considering the coverage details -- we chose a low deductible, the highest reimbursement percentage, and a generous annual limit. And honestly the peace of mind I have from having this insurance is priceless.

My only suggestion for improvement to them would be to offer a bit more for the wellness plan. I researched a LOT of pet insurance companies, probably all of them, and this seems to be an issue across the board. Best case scenario I found, I'd break even, with the worst case being I end up spending more altogether with wellness costs and the wellness plans themselves, so I opted to stick with the accidents and illnesses coverage. The coverage itself was/is good enough that the wellness plan being inadequate wasn't a deal-breaker for us. But it would be really nice to be able to get a wellness plan that is actually worth getting.

And I'd be remiss in my duty as a millennial if I didn't comment on the technological convenience. Their app is GREAT. I've literally never filled out a single paper or even submitted claims on my laptop, EVERYTHING I've done I've done via phone calls or on their app. You can really see and do everything you need on the app, which for me is extremely important cause 1.) I'm busy and 2.) is anyone really even able to remember their passwords anymore with how ridiculous the requirements are? Basically, if I can't access it via fingerprint on a smartphone, I'm not interested because I know I'll never get to it. And this is another way this company helps make things as convenient as possible. I very highly recommend this insurance. You just never know when you'll need it and if and when you do, you'll be glad you have one less thing to worry about.

    I decided a few years ago that I needed to get my Puggle a supplemental insurance for emergencies or things that happened outside of her Banfield plan as it seems like if she gets sick or injured it's outside of office hours and emergency service is expensive. Plus she's a Puggle and unfortunately her little bug eyes seem a bit prone to random surface scratches. I did a TON of research and thought I had picked the best company to go with but the one time I actually needed it, they were terrible to work with and rude. I ended up having to file a claim with the BBB to get results.

    After hearing my experience (and being involved with it because they were appalled about the hoops they were making me jump through), my vets recommended ASPCA so I switched. The one time I called them I felt like I was calling a local place, not some call center. I have had no issues getting reimbursed for my claims - I put them in via the app, can see what's happening and get the money direct deposited. It's been a wonderful experience and I wish I had found them years ago. I can't say enough nice things about them - if you're remotely unhappy with your current or looking for your first, please save your time and get ASPCA.

    I recommend ASPCA pet insurance to any and every pet owner. Their online platform is straight forward and user-friendly, customer service is always pleasant, efficient and resourceful. We have both our dogs on an insurance plan, Finnegan and Carter. Being that Finn is a french bulldog, the vet has nearly been a second home for us in his first year. We are at such ease with both Finn and Carter's current and future health, knowing that we have an amazing support system in our ASPCA family.

    The ASPCA insurance team is quick with claims which we are extremely grateful for. Their rates are very affordable and fair in comparison to competitors, but for us, ASPCA brings more value to the table with the 360 experience. Luckily our visits have mainly revolved around allergy issues but again, their platform makes it incredibly convenient for us to navigate and utilize. We have experience with both submitting claims for reimbursements as well as estimates. Both have been extremely beneficial for us. Direct deposits are always efficient and speedy. I remember receiving a reimbursement over a holiday which was incredible. To anyone looking for a reliable pet insurance plan, rest assure you and your pets are in the right hands with ASPCA. HIGHLY recommend!

    My horse sustained what would have been a life-ending injury had I not had ASPCA Pet Health Insurance. Instead, he has not only survived but he is anticipated to return to FULL ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE as an event horse. Coal is the absolute sweetest boy, with a huge personality and a loving nature. He is a horse who loves people, loves attention and whom I love with my whole heart. Coal had 2 hospital stays, major surgery, multiple rounds of regenerative therapy, x-rays, ultrasounds, emergency visits, a multitude of medications and it has all been covered with no hassle, the easiest claim submittal process in the industry and incredibly swift payout. Nearly all of my claim payouts have turned around in under 5 days, even surgery. Meaning, a direct deposit into my checking account so I'm not carrying a credit card balance.

    I'm telling everyone I know about the outstanding service and coverage we've received and I'm happy to say I have had 3 friends with a total of six horses who are now covered, I'm so happy for them, knowing they too will have the opportunity to provide the care their horses need in a crisis. Every person I've spoken with at ASPCA Pet Health Insurance has been pleasant and responsive, I really just can't thank ASPCA Pet Health Insurance enough for allowing me to provide life-saving care to my best friend. Thank you.

    I cannot speak highly enough about my experiences with my ASPCA pet health insurance for my sweet 4 lb rescue dog. I adopted him in 2017 and he showed up on my doorstep very ill. As a first time dog owner I knew I needed to be responsible when it came to making sure I could afford to provide the best treatment for my sweet little boy. Since day one I have felt supported and more confident because I have my ASPCA policy. In April he was diagnosed with auto immune triggered meningitis and instead of having to worry about the $5,000+ vet bills piling up I just had to worry about getting him healthy again. We’re 3 months into treating the disease and I’m already seeing improvement. I can’t recommend this amazing service and the kind caring people who work there highly enough.

    Extremely pleased with coverage. This has been a difficult year, as I lost Dixie to colon cancer 2/28/2020. However, I was able to give her every opportunity humanly possible to make a recovery due to the fact I had insurance. For a couple of years, I simply paid the premiums but never used it. Like with all insurance seems a waste of money, till you need.

    My dog and I enjoyed many years of good care. I recommended ASPCA to many friends and family. They were always friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. My Vet even knew about them and recommended them highly. Even the claim process went smoothly. The reimbursements were done in a timely manner and were always correct.

    We are pleased with the manner in which Hatch's claim was handled. The only criticism is that the initial total of his vet bill was off by $2,500. I made a phone call and spoke with Courtney who said that she would check into it, which she did. She called me back within an hour to advise that the initial calculation was, indeed, incorrect. She made arrangements to get it corrected and it was smooth sailing from there. Thank you! P.S. Hatch is doing great! :)

    After having (and not needing) accident insurance on my two dogs for years, we wound up needing it for both of them two weeks in a row. The first dog swallowed a toy and needed emergency obstruction removal surgery. Thanks to our accident insurance, we were able to say yes to the surgery, which cost thousands, without hesitation and be reimbursed for most of the cost.

    Without this insurance, our otherwise young, happy and healthy dog would've had an entirely different outcome. This insurance saved his life and I'm eternally grateful for the kind customer service rep I spoke with, as well as the speed with which our claim was reviewed and paid out. The second dog's scenario wasn't as life threatening or expensive, but it was still reassuring to have him covered. I highly recommend this pet insurance to everyone who has cats and dogs -- best case scenario, it's money you throw at the company every month; worst case scenario, you need it to save your pet's life.

    ASPCA customer service representatives are just the best! Knowledgeable, friendly, caring and calming! As far as the insurance itself... it is also the best. Several of my friends who have ‘other’ insurances, tell me when we trade our ‘fur baby’ issues, they do not have as good experiences as I do! Keep up good work! Thank you? Tammi S
