How many have it and who do you use?
Healthy Paws Pet Insurance, monthly premiums depend on where you live but mine are roughly $50 month (based coverage started when a puppy) with $100 annual deductible, 90% coverage of everything except office visit fee, routine care, and pre-existing conditions. Couldn't be happier. 2-3 day turn around from claim submission to reimbursement.
Even a simple surgical procedure is worth the coverage let alone emergency full blown specialist surgical procedures with months of rehab (been there out of pocket, never again).
Trupanion, they cover working dogs
Pet Plan. One small claim was denied and one large claim was paid.
I agree 100% with the above. I have been with them for a while now (5 years I think) and cannot complain about one thing with them. For example I had surgery done on my older dog Thursday, picked her up Friday. Used the iPhone App to submit my claim while in the vets office, 3 hours later I get a email from HP stating how much they are covering. I also bet I will have a check from them in my mailbox tomorrow, try that with the others. There are others out there that are cheaper, but they also have a lot of loop holes in their policies too. I can get the others at a 15-20% discount thru my work, but I pay more for their service.

Pet Plan has reimbursed me for three knee surgeries, two torsions of the spleen, one torsion of colon, oral surgery, broken toe, surgery of pancreas, etc. Never an issue about payment

I have a pile of claims with Pet Plan no less than 8" tall. I have submitted numerous surgeries and illnesses. I always have to call to get reimbursed. I have had to have letters written by my vet. I have had to file complaints with the department of insurance. If you like a hassle, this is the company to go with. They do not cover dogs that are injured when working, BTW.

Rider B is an optional owner assistance rider which covers boarding fees, lost pet & reward, cremation & burial, etc.

Hope this helps.
