Policies will normally fall into one of the three categories below.
Each policy is different – so check the terms and conditions carefully to ensure it meets your needs.
‘Lifetime Cover’ These policies typically provide the most comprehensive level of cover. Veterinary Fee benefits ‘re-charge’ each year that the policy is renewed. Depending on the provider, the benefit limit may apply in one of two ways:
1. The benefit limit is applied to ALL conditions per year e.g. £5,000 in total per year. 2. The benefit limit is applied PER CONDITION per year e.g. £5,000 per unrelated condition per year. For example, if your pet was unfortunate enough to have three unrelated conditions you could benefit from up to £15,000 per year.
All Vetsure policies fall into the ‘lifetime’ category and benefit limits are ‘per condition per year’.
‘Maximum Benefit’ These policies typically provide cover per condition, but up to a maximum financial amount. Once the financial limit has been reached, no further claims for that condition will be paid.
‘Time and Benefit Limited’ These policies typically provide the most basic level of cover and are usually amongst the cheapest available. Each condition is covered for 12 months from its onset up to a set financial limit. The condition will stop being covered after 12 months or when the financial limit is reached – whatever happens first.
If you decide to change your insurance after a medical condition has occurred, that condition will almost certainly be excluded under any new insurance – even if you haven’t submitted a claim for it. For this reason, it is worth taking all factors into account when making your selection as, unlike with other types of insurance, it may not be viable to change provider at a later date.
As a pet ages the premium and policy excess are likely to increase because, like humans, the risk of illness increases. With many providers there is a tiered increase in premiums once the pet becomes classed as ‘senior’, but the approach taken by insurers varies widely. Some breeds can be more expensive to cover than others because many have a predisposition to certain medical conditions.
Most policies have an ‘excess’. This is a sum that the policyholder must pay towards the cost of their insurance claim. Excesses can vary greatly so refer to the policy terms and conditions.
For ongoing conditions most insurers will apply the excess once per year per condition. In addition, insurers commonly ask for co-payments – where the policyholder also pays a percentage of the over all veterinary treatment bill. This commonly applies for ‘senior pets’, but can be seen much earlier on some policies.
Normally, payment for treatments is made by the client to the vet at the time of treatment. The treatment costs are then claimed back from the insurer by the client. Most insurers suggest that they will ‘allow’ direct claims – meaning that the client would only have to pay the vet the excess and any co-payments for eligible treatments. However, vets are not obliged to offer this and it is entirely at their discretion.
Vetsure policies offer you the choice of two generous benefit limits for your vet treatments. These limits apply to each unrelated condition and recharge fully each time you renew your policy, so you can make claims against an unlimited number of different eligible conditions.
When you take out a policy you want reassurance that you have the level of cover you need and that the policy will deliver when it is needed. That’s why we promote Vetsure.
As a Vetsure accredited practice we are able to settle your bill directly with them if you need to make a claim, all you need to pay us is your excess.
With Vetsure, the excess is only applied ONCE per condition – NOT per year, and you can tailor your policy by choosing from a range of excess levels to suit your budget.
Vetsure policies are cover for life, so ongoing conditions will continue to be covered each year (provided you continue to renew your policy and your premiums are kept up to date).
Vetsure policies are per condition per year e.g. on our Premier Plus Policy you can claim up to £5,000 for each unrelated condition per year.
Vetsure can tailor your excess to suit your budget – either £69, £109 or £149. For Vetsure, pets over the age of 8 years will require a 15% ‘co-payment’ towards the cost of each claim.
Vetsure will only charge the excess once per unrelated condition!
Vetsure-accredited practices like ours are happy to accept ‘direct claims’ from Vetsure.
Always read any policy documentation carefully to ensure it meets your needs. Always answer the insurer’s questions to the best of your knowledge.
Rod, Barbara and your amazing team!
There are not enough words to express our eternal gratitude to you all for saving Bella’s life.
It is not just your profession, you all care and show true love to the animals within your care.
You’ve never got exasperated with our questions or worries and been behind us every step of Bella’s journey. To say she has made a miraculous recovery is an understatement and that’s something I never thought we would be able to say.
Thankyou you all so very much, lots of love to you all xxxxxLiz Curran, Facebook
First visit today with my poppy who is terrified of the vets and Barbara the vet was fantastic. Well pleased.Anne Herschell, Facebook
Koby my chocolate lab had a small op on friday and was given lots of love from his favourite nurse emma. I walked in to get him and was told that the pair were inseparable!! He’s making a great recovery and sends lots of licks to his favourite nurse emma.Sarah Wheeler, Facebook
Very caring vets, we were treated with great care and respect when our ferret was dying. Brilliant people and service 🙂Tracey Tisdell, Facebook
A huge thank you to Sophie who de-matted our cat Ethel last week, she is a very happy cat now and you made a great job of her coatRachel, Facebook
Absolutely brilliant place. Rarely take my cat to the vets unless he is really unwell as from previous experience I have a major distrust of their motives! Have been to Clent vets for the first time today with a poorly boy and it is totally different. Lovely place, we weren’t insured and you don’t feel like they’re playing on your love of your pet to bleed you dry! Would highly recommend.Esther Burgoyne, Google
