Why Medibank Pet Insurance

With Medibank Pet insurance you’ll have the peace of mind that your pet will be looked after should anything happen. So, you can enjoy every moment running, playing, or just cuddling with them.

Give your best mate the best care possible

Think of Medibank Pet Insurance like health cover for your pet, much like your own human health insurance.

Advances in veterinary medicine mean more can be done for your pet’s health than ever before. Cats and dogs can now receive ultrasound and x-rays, diagnostic and laboratory tests, arthritis treatment, major surgery, and even cancer treatment – just like people.

Pet insurance helps pet owners feel better knowing their pet receives the health care they deserve without compromise so you can afford trips to the vet when you need them most.

What can Medibank Pet Insurance cover?

The world of pets is almost entirely unpredictable and we've all heard the stories of accidents or sudden illnesses that result in high vet bills. A visit to the vet could set you back anywhere from an average of $267 for an ear infection, $1,930 for a snake bite and up to even $10,697 for multiple fractures^.

Medibank Pet Insurance provides up to 80% back on vet bills for things like:

  • Hospitalisation
  • Prescription medicines and drugs
  • Vet consultations
  • Cruciate ligament conditions
  • After-hours emergency
  • Laboratory and diagnostic tests
  • Specialist care
  • Radiology
  • Surgery
  • Emergency boarding

Please note annual limits, some waiting periods and other conditions apply.

Medibank Pet Insurance provides cover options for many vet or specialist treatments, for specified accidents, illnesses~, hereditary or congenital diseases, and even benefits towards routine or preventive care depending on the level of cover.

Just as people have trusted us for decades to provide them with the highest quality health cover, you can now turn to us for the same reason when it comes to your pet’s health insurance.
