FAQs

Answers about the plan, including eligibility, options, enrollment, customer service and more.

  • Why should I select Pet Assure

    Members save hundreds of dollars on their veterinary cost.

  • Which pets can I enroll in Pet Assure?

    Any pet residing in your home.

    • Any type: dog, cat, horse, rabbit, bird, ferret, etc.
    • Older pets
    • Pets with pre-existing or hereditary conditions
  • Can I use this together with pet insurance?

    Since regular pet insurance costs more than it saves for general vet usage, it is really just protection for major medical claims. If you plan to purchase or have already purchased a pet insurance policy for that reason, you should certainly consider a Pet Assure plan as well.

    Deductible - Since pet insurance has deductibles between $100 and $1,000 per year, you would be required to pay all your vet bills before the deductible is met. If you have Pet Assure, you can save 25% on all those bills as well.

    Denied claims - Because pet insurance has hundreds of exclusions, there will be many claims that they will reject. With Pet Assure, you will save 25% on those claims as well.

    Initial payment - Pet insurance requires that you pay the vet in full and then file a claim, which can be a financial strain. If you are a Pet Assure member, you will instantly save 25% off your initial payment, and then you simply submit the amount paid after the Pet Assure discount to your pet insurance company.

  • Can I use this instead of pet insurance?

    Yes. Pet insurance can be costly, especially for families with multiple pets or older pets. With Pet Assure, you can still save money on your vet costs, without purchasing an insurance plan.

  • What procedures are discounted? Will the vet give me a discount on dental cleaning/services? Routine visits?

    Yes to all! For Pet Assure members, the veterinarian discounts any and all in-house medical services. This includes the office visit, exams, shots, surgery, dental cleaning & services, spays & neuters, x-rays and any other procedures the vet performs.

  • Is there anything that is not covered?

    These are the only things which will NOT be covered by Pet Assure at the vet: 1) Products which you take home with you (e.g. food, prescriptions) 2) Outsourced Services (e.g. blood work sent to a lab or an outside specialist) 3) Mobile vet mileage fees 4) Non-medical services (e.g., routine grooming and boarding). The discount is off the veterinarian's standard fees.

  • Where can I find a list of vets in my area?

    You can search for providers by visiting www.petassure.com/search.

  • Do I get the 25% off when I pay my bill or does Pet Assure reimburse me later?

    It's instant savings! Simply show your digital membership card from the Pet Assure app and the veterinary staff will deduct 25% off all in-house medical services, right then and there. You do not have to file any claim forms nor do you have to wait for reimbursement – you get your savings right at the time of service.

  • Why should I select PetPlus?

    The PetPlus Product, Prescription, and Preventatives Discount Plan provides you with members-only pricing (up to 40% off) and free shipping on everything your pet needs! Shop for your pet’s food, treats, toys, prescriptions, preventatives, and more at PetCareRx.com. Human-grade prescriptions can be picked up same-day at over 60,000 Caremark pharmacies like CVS, Walgreens and Walmart.

  • Which pets can I enroll in PetPlus?

    Any dog or cat is eligible for PetPlus. No restrictions on breed, health, or age.

  • Is PetPlus insurance?

    No, PetPlus is not pet insurance. It is a comprehensive benefits program designed to help save pet parents time and money in all areas of their pet’s care. Unlike even the best pet insurance, PetPlus has no exclusions for pets with pre-existing conditions; there are no claims forms, limits, or deductibles.

  • How much does PetPlus cost?

    PetPlus is available as a monthly payroll deduction of $4.50/month (single) and $8.50/month (unlimited).

  • How do I order pickup or delivery medications?

    First, search for the medication your pets need on PetPlus.com. On each page, you’ll be able to see the various dosages and quantities available in the drop down menu, as well as the PetPlus member price for each. Deliverability depends on the item -- some dog meds or cat meds are available for both delivery AND in-store pickup, whereas others might only be attainable by delivery OR in-store pickup.

  • Who dispenses my medications?

    PetPlus is not a pharmacy. PetPlus partners with National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) accredited pharmacies such as CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid, and PetCareRx to fulfill your pet prescriptions. Orders dispensed through online mail-order will be directed to PetCareRx, and those through in-store pickup will be dispensed at the local Caremark network pharmacy of your choice.

  • What do I do with my prescription?

    To pick up your dog meds or cat meds in-store, simply bring your pet’s original prescription to the pharmacy.

  • How do I pick up my pet's prescription at a pharmacy?

    After making a purchase for in-store pickup at PetPlus.com, you will need to bring both your pet’s prescription and your PetPlus card to the pharmacy at which you are picking up your order. Inform the pharmacist that you are picking up a prescription for your pet and have a pet prescription benefits card. You should NOT be charged at the pharmacy for your purchase. Within 2 days of your pickup, your PetPlus account will be charged for the purchase of the cat or dog medications you ordered.
