Fractured Leg Sample Pet Insurance Claim – Trupanion

Josie is a Golden Retriever puppy who recently experienced the unfortunate incident of fracturing her leg.

Treatment included sedatives, bandaging, splinting, X-rays, and a variety of medications. This bill also includes the costs of a secondary visit in which Josie underwent surgery, including the costs of medications, surgical materials, IV fluids and anesthesia.

Luckily, Josie has pet insurance, and her owner had chosen the $0 deductible which means Trupanion covered 90% of the entire bill.

Pet insurance claim amount: $3,399.02
Deductible applied: -$0.00
Exam fee: -$0.00
10% co-pay: -$339.90
Trupanion repaid: $3,059.12

Puppies can get into all kinds of mischief, plus their bones are especially fragile when they are young! Pet insurance is a great idea for young pets who are unpredictable.
