Pet Insurance Claim of the Week: Cataracts

Tallulah is an 7-year-old Bichon Frise who unfortunately has bilateral cataracts. This is an eye condition in which the lenses become cloudy. It usually occurs in older pets due to a decrease of protein and water in the lens. The condition may be genetic or due to diabetes or external factors.

Tallulah received cataract surgery in both eyes as well as a lens implant.

Deductible applied: -$0.00*
Exam fees: -$0.00
10% co-insurance: -$442.15
Trupanion repaid: $3,979.35

*The $250 deductible was met with the previous bill for this condition.
