Does anyone have experience dealing with this company on a claim?
You should read through this thread. There is certainly relevant info/stories there.Does anyone have experience dealing with this company on a claim?
I had noticed that about the hip dysplasia coverage. My dog is still under 1 year old and it seems like I would get slightly better coverage with trupanion than PetPlan for slightly smaller premiums, even including the HD endorsement. That's why I was wondering about how easy they are to work with. At this point, I've narrowed it down to trupanion or PetPlan.I just did a quote on Trupanion's website. It specifically states that Hip Dysplasia is *NOT* covered unless the policy is started prior to the dog's first birthday, and the optional coverage is selected. [EDIT- Petplan *does* cover hereditary issues such as HD]
So between VPI (who seems to have terrible reviews), Trupanion, or Petplan- if your dog is >1 yr old and has even the slightest chance of HD (come on- it's a GSD!) then IMHO, Petplan seems the way to go. That is what I am currently looking into, but have not yet pulled the trigger. It should be noted that Petplan will only reimburse 70% of an emergency (or specialty) clinic visit, no matter what plan you choose. See the last comment here.
