This week’s claim of the week is not an actual claim (yet) but a pre-approval. When an insured pet needs a treatment, the owner may send in a pre-approval form to find out in advance whether or not the claim will be approved. This saves you from the worry of going through an expensive treatment for your pet and wondering whether or not pet insurance will cover it.
