There are some general exclusions such as pre-existing conditions, dental procedures (unless you have Booster Care), elective treatments and procedures, breeding or obstetrics and routine or preventative treatments (unless you have Routine Care (non-insurance benefit)).
Refer to the PDS for a full list of what isn’t covered.
Pet insurance offers two cover options, Classic Cover and Plus Cover, with annual benefit limits of either $15,000 or $30,000 respectively. Each cover includes a choice of excess ($0 or $200) and benefit percentage (70%, 80% or 90%) to help meet your needs.4
Your premium is impacted by the excess or benefit percentage you choose. For example, a higher excess and a lower benefit percentage will have a lower premium but higher out of pocket costs at claim time. Conversely, a lower excess and a higher benefit percentage will have a higher premium but lower out of pocket costs at claim time.4
Please note there are other factors used to calculate your premium. Please consider the PDS for more information.
Yes, your premium will generally increase each year.
Just like humans, the older our pets get, the more likely they are to have health hiccups. Cats and dogs age faster than humans do, which means that their veterinary treatment costs typically go up rapidly each year too. As a result, the cost of insuring your pet will increase as your pet ages.
Also, the overall cost of medical treatment for pets has increased in recent years, due to the increased availability of medical treatments and technology-enabled services and ongoing demand for these services. The treatment options and advancements in technology are providing us with great opportunities to give our pets a great quality of life for longer.
While this is great news for the care of our pets, these treatments come at a significant cost. Year-on-year treatment costs increase, and this is factored into the cost of pet insurance.
Refer to the PDS for more information about calculation of premiums.
