What are Coverage Requirements?

Coverage requirements are the specific requirements your insurance claim must meet to receive reimbursement from your pet insurance provider. To receive reimbursement for your claim, you will need to submit an insurance claim form to your insurance provider.

How Coverage Requirements Work

Standard coverage requirements include your pet’s medical records, an itemized veterinary invoice, and a summary of what your pet was treated for. You’ll also need to submit information about your policy, such as your policy number, your contact information, and information about when your pet began showing symptoms of the illness or injury.


Key Takeaways

  • Coverage requirements are the information and receipts you must submit to be reimbursed for an eligible pet insurance claim.
  • The information you submit on a pet insurance claim must meet your policy’s requirements and fall under the coverage your policy provides.
  • A claims adjuster will look at your claim, verify that you submitted all required information and that your claim falls within your policy’s coverage.
