Policy Details      The amount this policy will cover for treatment per condition or year, depending on the policy type.

Time Limited policies provide 12 months of cover from the start of the incident. Maximum Benefit policies will pay out up to a set limit per condition, but once you reach this limit you can no longer claim for this condition. Lifetime policies provide cover for ongoing conditions as long as the policy is renewed each year.

Some insurers will not allow you to take out a new policy once your pet reaches a certain age.

Some insurers can arrange to pay your vet directly, rather than you having to pay the vet upfront, and then claim the fees back from the insurer.
