What is an Enrollment Date?

An enrollment date is the day that you purchase your pet’s insurance policy.

How Enrollment Dates Work**

While an enrollment date marks the day your pet is fully enrolled in pet insurance, it does not mark the day where your pet’s coverage is fully effective. Most pet insurance plans have a waiting period that determines when different types of coverage become effective. Your waiting period could be a few days or weeks, depending on the type of coverage and plan you’ve chosen. Your effective date is when your pet insurance provider begins covering your pet.


Key Takeaways

  • An enrollment date is the day that your pet is fully enrolled and accepted for a pet insurance plan.
  • An enrollment date does not mark when your pet’s coverage begins. Their waiting period and effective date will determine when their coverage takes effect.
