Hi Everyone!!

I think a few of you know that Benji needs surgery for a luxating patella in his back left leg. The surgery was hanging on whether the insurance claim went through for his x-rays. I got the letter today to say it had gone through. They didn't contest it at all. So now we can sort out dates hopefully for a specialist to come in and do his surgery. To say i'm over the moon is an understatement!!! :D:D:D:D:D:D:D

Thats great news... i know the feeling of waiting on the insurance, it was stressful but we had ours sorted and she had the surgery a little over a week later. We hope everything goes smooth xx

Benji is now booked in at the vets for a free consultation on Monday, so we can discuss the surgery options and such. The only thing that could go wrong now is that the vets won't except payment straight from the insurance company but fingers crossed they will! :)

good luck for today, if they say they dont take the claim from the insurance ask if they would if they had a pre autorisation, my vets dont tend to deal with my insurance company but i asked to see if they would if they had the pre autorisation and they said yes which was a great weight off me as i didnt have 800 spare until the insurance came through

How did the consultation go ?

Consultation went great. They're willing to except the money straight from the insurance, which is amazing. Got a phone call today to confirm that Benji will be going in for surgery on August 10th, just 5 days before his 1st birthday.
