There are more specialist services than ever before available to treat sick and injured animals, giving your pet a much better chance of full recovery and a better quality of life with chronic illnesses. Sometimes these services can lead to high medical costs when something does go wrong, which is why pet insurance is becoming such a popular choice for pet owners. It means you can have a helping hand to provide your beloved pet with the best care available; just as you would do for yourself and the rest of your family.
Almost all pet insurance policies will require you to pay the medical invoice in full after treatment, then claim back the benefit which can leave you out of pocket for days or weeks. This can make specialist treatment an issue for many people, even though they have pet insurance.
Fortunately there has been a change in the industry and now for the first time, pet owners with participating pet insurance policies will only need to pay an insurance gap via GapOnly™.
The advantage of choosing a vet specialist partnered with GapOnly™ is your insurance claim can be processed onsite and typically within 10 minutes. Once approved, you will only need to pay the difference, or 'gap' between the full invoice and the insured benefit; helping you get the specialist services your pet needs.
Veterinary Specialist Services is the first Specialist Veterinary Hospital in SE QLD and Northern NSW to offer their clients GapOnly™
With GapOnly™, you can have the convenience of claiming on the spot without the paperwork.
If you have a GapOnly™ eligible pet insurance policy and your regular vet wants to refer you to a specialist, consider Veterinary Specialist Services and the advantages that GapOnly™ can offer to you.
