Testimonials

"Filing a claim with PetsBest was easy, very easy. Took about 2 minutes in the app, so that part of the process was great. Now the not so great part, it took approximately 1.5 months and 1 month (respectively) to see reimbursement for our two claims; this is my first time using PetsBest, so I am not sure if this is typical for them or due to short staffing (I received multiple emails apologizing for the delay). I hope that it will be quicker in the future. They provided the coverage that they said they would provide (we have wellness insurance for our pup in addition to regular coverage), and everything seemed to be accurate on the explanation of benefits."

"Within the last two days, all but one claim has been processed. The turnaround time from processing to payment was very quick - only one day. I'm hoping that the claims process goes much more smoothly now that Pets Best has every piece of information on Stormy from his adoption to date. If you opt for Pets Best, try to send them all of your pet's medical records immediately upon enrolling. That may make the process from start to finish much, much quicker for you"

"I've tried several different plans with my two dogs and one cat. I am totally satisfied with PetsBest as they offered the best coverage and their prices were reasonable. Even on existing medical issues, they did a fantastic job covering them. Very good customer relations and easy to talk with. They offer several different plans, which I like".

"The submission process was seamless an in a time with a lot of stress it was nice to have a good company provide a little peace of mind. The reimbursement process was lengthy but that was well represented during the process as well as follow up emails ensuring us our claim was still “in the works” an being processed."
