What is Maximum Benefit Pet Insurance?

Maximum Benefit Pet Insurance covers vet fees if your pet gets ill or injured in an accident. Cover is provided for each eligible illness/injury up to the limit stated in the policy, with no time limit.

This means you can claim as many times as you need on the same medical condition until the cover limit is reached. However, please note that once the maximum amount has been reached, that condition will no longer be covered. Also, the premium must be paid to maintain the insurance in effect.

At Insure Your Paws, Maximum Benefit Pet Insurance also includes cover for third party liability (dogs-only), accidental death, emergency boarding kennel fees and much more.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is Maximum Benefit Pet Insurance worth it?

    Maximum Benefit Pet Insurance is an intermediate cover level with an affordable price and comprehensive cover, which makes it a great option.

    Its more comprehensive cover for injuries, illness, accidental death and more makes it a better option than more basic Accident Only policies, for example. However, only you can make the final decision if it is worth it based on your own needs and budget.

  • What is the difference between Maximum Benefit and Lifetime Pet Insurance?

    Maximum Benefit and Lifetime Cover Pet Insurance, at Insure Your Paws, cover the same benefits. What makes them different is mainly the fact that the Maximum Benefit covers veterinary fees up to a fixed amount per condition. There is no time limit so long as you keep the cover in force but once the set limit is reached, there will be no cover.

    On the other hand, Lifetime Pet Insurance provides continuous cover for the conditions and its maximum amount is reset each year the policy is renewed with no gap in cover.

  • Does Maximum Benefit Pet Insurance cover existing conditions?

    Maximum Benefit Pet Insurance does not cover pre-existing conditions, only those that happen within the policy period. Also, injuries occurring within the first 48 h and illnesses occurring within the first 14 days are excluded.
