Banfield Pet Insurance Reviews
About Banfield Pet Insurance
Banfield Pet Hospital is the provider of Banfield Optimum Wellness Plans, often called Banfield Pet Insurance, which are health and wellness plans that are custom created for your dog or cat.
How Does It Work?
New customers can either look through the pre-set wellness plans that Banfield has created for dogs, puppies, cats, and kittens, or you can go through the process of building your own custom plan for your pet. To start building a custom wellness plan for you pet, you begin by entering your residential zip code and then answer a short set of questions to see which plan is recommended for your pet.
Regardless of whether you choose a pre-set plan or a custom plan, customers should know all plans include unlimited free office visits, recommended vaccines, comprehensive physical exams, early screening for serious illnesses, discounts on most Banfield products and services, reasonable monthly payments, online access to your pet's health records, and more.
The prices of Banfield's Optimum Wellness Plans are based on the species, location, and services that best meet the needs of your pet. They offer a pricing calculator so customers can get an estimated monthly cost for their plan, and you can always work with a Banfield representative to finalize your plan and costs with of your pet in mind.
Banfield does not offer a Refund Policy, per se. Instead, their website says that the costs of all services included in their plan are based on a 12 month service agreement. If you decide to cancel at any point before your full 12 months are up, you will be held financial responsible for paying the full cost of all services your pet had received under their plan.

Those plans aren’t a health insurance plan, this a PREVENTIVE MEDICINE plan. If you have a healthy dog, these plans offer you all the preventive care that your pet needs for the year, thats why its a 12m contract. It cover, all the examinations, blood panels (once a year) vaccines, intestinal parasites examination, dewormer, dental cleaning and polishing, radiographs... it depends on the plan of your choice.
The best deal is the Puppy Care Plus that includes Spay or Neuter and the Senior Plan that includes radiographs and electrocardiograph, dental cleaning because those can be really explensive!!!!
If you have a dog that already have any condition, it will you cover all the examinations, but extra lab tests or medical treatment its on you. BUT you get a discount percent, depends on the plan that your p is enrrolled.
