Today’s topic: 
Reimbursement Formula

What is this?

Remember when your teacher told you math was important and you’d use it when you grew up – turns out they were right. The formula or equation used for reimbursement can make a difference in what goes back into your pocket.

How does this affect you?

With all pet insurance plans, you select your deductible and reimbursement percentage – however, depending on when these are applied in the formula can make a difference in your reimbursement amount. If your deductible is subtracted before applying your reimbursement percentage, it will provide you with more money back.
Best Reimbursement Formula:
(Vet Bill – Deductible) x Reimbursement = Money Back
($1,000 – $100) x 90% = $810
($2,500 – $250) x 90% = $2,025
Less Reimbursement Formula:
(Vet Bill x Reimbursement) – Deductible = Money Back
($1,000 x 90%) – $100 = $800
($2,500 x 90%) – $250 = $2,000
