Questions you might have about PROSURE

Dental procedures are covered under the Gold level policy with an annual benefit limit of $1,000, which goes up to $2,000 per year with the Platinum policy. To be eligible to claim for dental costs, you must be able to demonstrate a history of annual dental checks for your pet. There is also a two-year waiting period before you can make a claim. Not all dental procedures are covered. The following are some of the specific exclusions for the dental benefit:

  • Orthodontic treatment
  • Root canal
  • Crowns
  • Cosmetic dental surgery
  • Corrective treatment
You may claim any routine care, like vaccinations, deworming, desexing and tick treatment. However, there is an annual benefit limit of $150.
No, none of the policies come with an excess. However, the maximum amount payable for any claim is 80% of your costs, so you will not be reimbursed for the total amount you pay.
Yes, but only in countries that don’t require your pet to be quarantined on return to Australia, which effectively means only in New Zealand. The policy will not cover your pet if they are out of Australia for longer than 60 days or if they are not under your direct care.
You can get a PROSURE Pet Health Insurance policy for your pet when it is between eight weeks and nine years of age. If you already hold a policy, you can continue your insurance cover beyond nine years of age as long as you renew each year without a break.
