When We Started
Founded in 2007
Louise Beevers, our founder & vet nurse, introduced a revolutionary pet insurance cover to the market more than 14 years ago, to help and support pet families with unforeseen, significant costs they couldn’t otherwise afford. Our passion & compassion drives us to continue seeking ways to provide better, more comprehensive & totally genuine insurance cover, unique to SA. We now have grown into SA’s leading pet insurance brokers, through our multiple sustainable, yet simple cover plans & add-ons to suit every family & budget.
Your pet always comes first with us. Every pet deserves MediPet. And so do you.
Genuine, comprehensive cover
MediPet prides itself on our commitment to transparency. You should always read your insurance agreement carefully to understand your cover, & prevent any nasty surprises at the time you wish to claim. We offer genuine, comprehensive cover, without small print or hidden terms. This is why 98% of vets recommend MediPet.
Your pets come first
Unlike typical pet insurance brokers, we only do pets. So your furry family aren’t an after-thought to taking out life, car and house insurance. Why? Because pets work very differently. What does this mean for you? Your pets are important to us. Join the MediPet Family.
In-house vet expertise
Other insurers don’t have our vet expertise, experience & passion to adequately process claims, so you get your refunds. Our in-house vets, vet nurses & vet-trained team represent each pet, partnering with your vet practice & presenting your case to the underwriters. This is how we have a 96% claim success rate, & also why 99% of our members choose to stay with us every month.
We work with a variety of established organisations
Questions to ask when choosing pet insurance cover
MediPet welcomes all shapes and sizes of dogs & cats. We have no breed restrictions, & cover all common-breed conditions.
Our Accident, Essential & Ultimate360° plans have no sub-limits, but many other insurance plans do. Look out for specific limits per medical expense also known as a “sub-limit,” which may even be applied within limits of a claim for treatments including consultation fees, hospitalisation, procedures (x-rays, surgery etc), blood tests & medication.
There is no limit per claim on Accident, Essential & Ultimate360° plans. Lite, our limited cover option, has a maximum limit of R13 760 per claim.
This is a unique benefit to MediPet, offered as an optional add-on to Lite, Essential & Ultimate360° pets.
Fortunately, not. Our Ultimate360° plan’s annual maximum of R65 000 per policy year allows for 1 dental claim per year.
