Sugar Daddy Doggy Daycare Loves Healthy Paws

As soon as I adopted my furry child, a French Bulldog, I knew exactly what I needed next.. pet insurance. There wasn't an overwhelming amount to learn about pet insurance at the time since the idea was still pretty new. But I went with the cheaper of the two options.. Healthy Paws.

It wasn't a month before I needed to use the pet insurance for some routine checkups and doggy prescriptions. Turns out French Bulldogs get to go the vet fairly frequently! I'm so happy I decided to buy pet insurance.. it gives me the piece of mind that if something serious were to happen, my dog would be covered and I wouldn't be in a sudden financial hardship.

The process to file a claim with Healthy Paws is pretty simple, but works very different than the medical insurance I have for myself. After visiting the vet, I get a receipt by email which I forward to Healthy Paws. Once I reach my deductible, they reimburse me a percentage of what I spent as long as the services were covered. I always submit a claim for a daily skin medicine, and a few other costs to keep him healthy. Healthy Paws helps me save money and I'm thankful I chose them from the start.

The only thing I wish were different with pet insurance is that it worked more like my medical insurance where the provider covers the cost up front and I'm not paying out of pocket for 100% of everything up front.
