Let us pay your bill in minutes

We know you want to provide the best medical care for your pet. But sometimes it can be difficult to pay for the treatment your pet needs. We can help by paying your claim in minutes just as you are checking out. 

We can pay directly to your veterinary hospital

Imagine no more paying out of pocket, submitting paper claims, then waiting for approval and reimbursement. All you have to do is pay your portion of the bill and we cover the rest, directly to your veterinary hospital. 



Because no one likes waiting for the reimbursement check

We don’t think it’s fair that the traditional pet insurance still requires you to cash up front. So we have made this old reimbursement model obsolete with our vet direct pay option available at participating hospitals. Now you and your veterinarian can simply focus on providing your pet with the best medical care as you enjoy the Trupanion policy’s unique benefits:

  • Quick and easy checkout – find out the status of your claim and what is covered in minutes.
  • No more paperwork – say goodbye to filing claims and waiting for reimbursement checks.
  • Affordable care – pay only your portion and we pay the rest directly to your vet.
  • Peace of mind – your pet’s best treatment is a medical, not a financial decision.

Let us pay your bill

Don't know if your veterinarian accepts vet direct pay?

Ask your veterinary hospital if they are able to accept direct payments from Trupanion. If your hospital is not familiar with vet direct pay, contact us (888.733.2670) and we will work with them to ensure that you and your pet have the best experience possible. Our goal is to help veterinarians deliver the best medical care for pets, and we are always looking to expand vet direct pay services to more hospitals.
