On the spot with GapOnly™

GapOnly™ is our latest pet insurance claims innovation that helps pet parents with an eligible policy at participating Vets access their pet insurance benefit straight away for eligible claims, helping reduce the burden of large, unexpected Vet bills. With less upfront expense by only paying the gap (or the amount not covered by your policy) on eligible claims, you can put the financial worry aside and focus on what’s most important – your pet’s recovery.

As an eClaim by your Vet

Available at more than 1,050 Vets across Australia, our eClaims service lets participating Vets submit a pet insurance claim on your behalf after your pet’s appointment, meaning there’s nothing more for you to do. Apart from our GapOnly™ claims service, this is the fastest way to claim.

Posting a paper claim

If you prefer to make your claim via the post, then you’ll need to print and complete the pet insurance claim form together with your Vet, and ensure supporting Vet invoices and clinical notes are included for speedy assessment. Find claim and policy documents on your Pet Portal.
