I’ll try to cover everything… I’ll write in points to keep it clear.
- We prefer to pay vets direct however, if the vet doesn’t want to be paid direct then we obviously can’t! We were set up to have claims pre-authorisation to give you and your vet peace of mind. That way, everyone knows everything is covered, the vet can be paid directly and you don’t have to pay up front. However, vets have been stung by other companies in the past and can be reluctant. This is up to your vet and hopefully will work more efficiently in the future when our brand is more established; it’s just a question of trust.
- Costs of treatment have 25% margin, they will not be arguing over the costs!
- Urgent medical treatment is life-threatening.
- The price is fixed, there will be incremental increases, naturally, that’s life
. Select breed dogs are already £28 a month. We had that put in because I wanted to control the risk. We were going to be flooded with high risk breeds without the supplement.
- The review centre has some reviews… otherwise look at our facebook and twitter pages. I’ve just had a claims report sent over to me and am going to contact some clients and ask them to send in some comments.
Hope this covers everything
