Pet Insurance Claim of the Week: Hit By Car

I received an e-mail from a co-worker about this extraordinary claim we paid this week. Poor Nacho the dog was hit by several cars and needed extensive surgery and treatment totaling over eleven thousand dollars!

Pet insurance is very helpful for difficult and expensive times like these, but Nacho’s owners were able to save his life because he was insured.

Pet insurance claim amount: $11,591.33
Deductible applied: $0.00
Exam fee: -$170.00
10% co-pay: -$1,142.13
Trupanion repaid: $10,279.20
