What isn't covered?

Fetch cat insurance provides coverage for future accidents and illnesses — the stuff you can’t see coming. We don’t cover pre-existing conditions. No one does. We also don’t cover cosmetic or elective procedures. Routine and preventive care, which cover things like spaying and neutering, teeth cleaning, flea and tick protection and vaccines, aren’t covered either.

When should I get pet insurance for my cat?

The sooner you get Fetch, the sooner we can help. If you have a kitten, you shouldn’t wait to sign up. And the same goes if you’ve adopted an older cat, too — it’s likely an older pet will develop a new illness or injury as they continue to age. But, if you wait until your pet gets sick or hurt, we won’t be able to cover your vet visit.

How does cat insurance work?

Your coverage kicks in after your waiting period (which could be up to 15 days), so you'll be ready when life throws you curveballs. Here's how Fetch's reimbursement model works:

Use any veterinarian in the U.S. or Canada

With Fetch, you have the flexibility to keep your current vet or visit a new vet if you’d like. We even cover specialists and emergency clinics.

Submit a claim in minutes

Just take a picture of your vet documents, answer a few questions about your pet’s treatment and we’ll handle it from there.

Get paid back fast

Once your claim is approved, you’ll be paid back up to 90% of your unexpected vet bill in as little as 2 days via direct deposit.

How much does cat insurance cost?

Our plans average $20/month for cats and even lower prices for kittens. How do we do it? With our patent-pending Fetch Forward technology — it determines the fairest and most accurate pricing based on your pet’s breed, age and your location. From there, you’ve got options. Here are the levers you can pull to either pay less or get paid back more.

Annual coverage amount

The maximum dollar amount you can be paid back per policy year. The higher your annual coverage amount, the more you’ll pay per month.

Annual deductible

The fixed dollar amount you're responsible for paying before your insurance kicks in. Higher deductible plans have lower monthly premiums.


The percentage of each covered vet bill you’ll be paid back after you meet your deductible. The higher your reimbursement rate, the more you’ll pay per month.

What does cat insurance cover?

Cat insurance helps you cover the cost of unexpected veterinary bills if your pet gets sick or hurt. Fetch provides the most comprehensive coverage for your cat and pays back up to 90% of your vet bills. That means we offer the best coverage including sick-visit exams fees, breed-specific issues, and teeth and gums.

What is a deductible?

If your cat receives veterinary care, the first thing you need to do is submit a claim. Once your claim is approved, the initial amount will go towards the annual deductible that you’ve selected (options range from $250-$700). We’ll start reimbursing your claims after your deductible is met.

How do I get pet insurance for my cat?

Enrolling is easy with Fetch. All you need to do is answer a couple of questions about your cat and you’ll get a free quote that’s personalized to them. Once you sign up, there’s a waiting period (which could be up to 15 days) before injuries and illnesses are covered. (Don’t worry, we’ll email you everything you need to know.) After the waiting period is over, you’re free to begin submitting claims.

When should I get cat insurance?

The key to ensuring your cat has the best coverage possible is to enroll before they need it. Like other providers, Fetch is unable to cover pre-existing conditions. That’s why we recommend signing up when your cat is a kitten so that any future illnesses or injuries will be covered. Fetch covers pets of any age, so it’s important to sign up an older cat before they develop any health issues.

How do I pick the best plan?

Fetch offers the most comprehensive coverage in our one simple plan. There are a few factors you can customize to make sure your price fits your budget: your deductible, annual coverage amount and reimbursement rate. See how to customize your price to find the value that is right for you.
