Pet Insurance Claim of the Week: Jaundice

This week’s featured claim is about a 13-year-old cat named Casey. As we all know, senior years bring potential for age-related health conditions and Casey is no exception. She is recently experiencing complications with her liver including cholangiohepatitis and hepatic icterus.

Cholangiohepatitis is a condition in which the bile passages become inflamed. Hepatic icterus (jaundice) is a sign of complications of the liver.

Casey spent a few days at the emergency veterinary clinic receiving medication and close monitoring. We are keeping her in our thoughts with hopes that she will pull through.

Total claim amount: $5,035.00
Deductible applied: -$100.00
Exam fees: -$74.00
10% co-insurance: -$486.10
Trupanion repaid: $4,374.90
