So the preventative plans cover preventative care, but what if your pet gets sick or has an injury. We have partnered with an insurance company called Companion Protect and have joined their Vetwork to provide you with instant claims in our office.
Companion Protect is strictly an injury and illness plan and does not cover any preventative care. They also do not cover any sickness due to a lack of preventative care. For instance, they don’t cover dentistry as it is preventative care. They won’t cover heartworm treatment, as it is a lack of preventative care. But here is a very SHORT list of things they will cover:
- ACL Repair
- Bladder Stone Removal
- Vomiting and Diarrhea
- Hospitalization and IV Fluids
- Mass Removals
- Emergency Care
- And even Holistic and Alternative Care
- and many many more things
Companion Protect provides care to all breeds and does not have any breed exclusions. If you have a dog under the age of 7 years old, your monthly premium would be roughly $45 a month, if your dog is over 7 years old, your monthly premium would be roughly $68 a month. If you sign your pet up as a puppy, your premium will remain $45 a month for the life of the pet, regardless of claims or age.
For Cats, under 7 years old is roughly $23 a month and for over 7 years is roughly $34 a month.
As a Vetwork partner at our clinic, you would pay a $100 copay and 10% of the overall visit for most visits. If your visit is an emergency visit or surgical procedure, you would have a $200 copay and 10% of the visit. Medications are covered at 90% (so you pay 10%), and prescription food is covered at 50%.
Let’s look at a scenario:
You bring your pet in for an exam because it has been urinating blood and having frequent accidents in the house. An exam, radiographs, and bloodwork are performed. We diagnose your pet with bladder stones and is now going to need surgery to remove those stones. Until we can get to surgery, we start your pet on a special diet and start them on some pain medication to help with the discomfort. For this initial visit, the average bill for this would be somewhere between $450 and $600 depending on the size of your pet. With Companion Protect, at the end of your visit, you would only have to pay somewhere between $150 and $175. But now we still have surgery. This surgery can range from $1500 to $1800. With Companion Protect, you would be walking out paying on average somewhere between $350 and $380. Now, your pet has to be on this special diet for the remainder of its life. The special diet can range from $40 to $65 depending on the size of the bag. Now you will just be paying $20 to $32.50 for that bag of food. And because we are a Vetwork partner, you do not have to pay in full at the time of service and get reimbursed. Approval is immediate, we take the total copay at the time of your visit and we get reimbursed directly from the company. So what would have been a total of Somewhere between $2000 and $2400 between the two visits has only cost $500 and $555.
If you visit a hospital that is not within the Vetwork, your copay is $100 and 10% of the total bill, and all other coverage remains the same. For out of Vetwork hospitals, you would have to pay the bill in full and submit it to Companion Protect for reimbursement.
