Claim form completion We will never guarantee payment of a claim over the telephone. If you want to make a claim you must complete your sections of the claim form and for veterinary fees, arrange for your vet to fill in their part along with a full medical history and return to us within 60 days of the pet receiving the treatment or as soon as possible thereafter. For death claims we will additionally require the original purchase receipt, vet’s death confirmation, or independent witness statement. We only accept invoices that are on a veterinary practice headed paper and contain VAT amounts and a VAT number if your vet is VAT registered. Financial and treatment histories headed “Insurance report” or similar are not acceptable. You will be responsible for any costs charged for the completion of the form.
