Wagmo was founded in 2017 by Christie Horvath, who describes herself as a dog-obsessed insurance nerd. Having experienced the pain of footing a $10,000 veterinary bill for her dog, Christie seeks to help other pet parents to save thousands of dollars through affordable pet insurance plans.
The insurance provider offers a unique policy plan based on your budget designed to meet a balance between comprehensive coverage and maintaining low premiums. With a high reimbursement rate and a range of deductibles, the platform offers customer-oriented plans to protect your pet and finances.
Unlike traditional insurance providers, Wagmo does not require a medical examination before enrolling your pet. However, the provider may contact your veterinarian and access your pet’s medical history when the need arises. The platform offers policy plans for eligible dogs and cats.
The minimum enrollment age is 8 weeks. There is no restriction on the maximum age. Although Wagmo’s premiums are relatively low, they may vary based on the following factors:
You can build your plan through Wagmo’s online platform or the mobile app. Simply click on the build my plan icon, and answer a few questions, including the pet’s details and the type of coverage you need. If you are unsure, the platform can recommend a suitable package based on your budget.
The policy offers coverage for a year and needs to be renewed upon expiry.
The insurance provider allows you to take full control of your finances and pet’s health with its customizable policy plans. The costs for purchasing a policy plan include deductibles, reimbursement rates, and annual limits.
Wagmo’s waiting period for illness and accident policy is 15 days and 30 days for cancer. Wellness plans begin immediately.
The provider does not cover pre-existing conditions, but it does not exclude your pet from being eligible for pet insurance plans.
Claim submission is easy and straightforward. You need to click on the ‘Make a Claim’ icon, take a photo of the itemized veterinary bill, and submit it through the online platform or mobile website. The claims department will review your submission and process the payment within 24 hours once approved.
Wagmo’s reimbursements are made through Paypal, bank transfer, paper check, instant card payment, or Venmo. During account sign-up, you are required to select your suitable mode of reimbursement.
