Pet Insurance — How It Works

Recent Reviews From Pet Insurance Review

MetLife Pet Is a Great Choice

I analyzed at least 10 other insurance companies, and MetLife Pet insurance far exceeded the value of all other insurance companies. All of the companies had caps whereas MetLife Pet was a straight 90% (you can choose a less % for a lower premium) on all claims after your deductible has been met. It was a no-brainer. MetLife Pet makes the claims process seamless.

One Less Thing to Worry About

When your loved one, in this case your dog, is sick, you have so many things to worry about. One of them may probably be affordability. MetLife Pet Insurance is great! Customer service is helpful with all my questions. They work with your vet office to get all the necessary paperwork to process your claim

Easy claims process and quick payment

I sent the claim in and heard back a few days later that it was accepted. Payment was on the way a couple days later. Not too difficult to do. Thank you!

I saved so much on the unexpected

I am glad I decided to get this. Since I have started this insurance my dog has had ACL surgery, started seasonal allergies, and has had a clogged tear duct procedure. Usually we are only at the vet once a year for shots! This saved me so much money for all that unusual stuff that happened this year. I have been telling all of my family and friends to get it.

MeLife Pet offers great wellness benefits

This is my first dog ever. I adopted him as a 7 year old rescue. Being older myself, I knew health care is important. I did a lot of research and MetLife Pet offered the most benefits, including wellness. They are quick to get to, easy to file claims, and even include flea, tick, and heartworm meds all under one deductible. I am very pleased.

I was able to give my dog the best care

This company has been absolutely fabulous to deal with since I first signed up with them. My Australian Kelpie is a rescue. Shortly after we got her, she developed a cancerous kidney and had to have it removed. MetLife Pet took care of the claim in record time, and each time the sweet old girl has had an issue, their settlement time and payout.

We dont have to fear paying vet bills

Having 3 dogs is already expensive, and finding affordable coverage was mind-numbing. We had another company for a few years but could only afford accident/routine care. Even then, they found a reason to deny or lowball almost every claim. Since switching to MetLife Pet, we've had one dog hospitalized and another began treatment.

Emergency vet costs nearly covered!

A new puppy means everything goes in the mouth despite being crated and watched like a hawk. Well, something hurt her GI tract and she had fluids coming out of both ends. An emergency hospital visit and 4 days later, the vet bills were over $5,000! Thank goodness I had MetLife Pet insurance! Once I submitted a claim online and uploaded  documents (a breeze), they paid nearly all of my bills. I’ve had other pet insurance over the years, and MetLife Pet far exceeds my experiences with the previous companies.

MetLife Pet has always taken care of us

We have had MetLife Pet insurance since our dog was a pup and they have always taken great care of us. Their claim service is so easy and communication is always there if we ever have questions. Highly recommend it!

For a typically low monthly fee, pet health insurance helps to reimburse you for a portion of your vet bills, helping you pay for your dog or cat’s unexpected medical expenses. Insurance plans typically don’t cover pre-existing conditions, which is why it’s a great idea to sign up your dog or cat when they are healthy.4 Learn more about how pet insurance works

Pre-existing conditions are typically injuries or illnesses, or symptoms that occurred prior to your coverage start date and any applicable waiting period. Learn more about pre-existing conditions, and reference your policy for full details.

The cost of pet insurance depends on a variety of factors, including the species, breed, sex,5 and age of your pet. Where you live also helps determine what you pay. The type of coverage you need will affect costs, too. Learn more about pet insurance costs or get a free quote.

Nope, you can use any licensed vet in the U.S.! Unlike with human health insurance, there is no such thing as “in-network” and “out-of-network” providers. So if you have a vet that you currently love, there is no need to switch.

It’s never too late to make sure your pet has coverage. With no age restrictions, we are here for even our most silver of seniors and can help with everything from end-of-life care to grief counseling.

We have zero breed exclusions, whether you have a golden doodle prone to hip dysplasia or a scottish fold prone to kidney disease. 

We can help handle the vet bill.
