Healthcare Plan FAQ

Question:
What is included in the Preventive Healthcare Plans?
Answer:
Plans include everything recommended by Newtown Veterinary Center for the aid in preventing illness, injury and chronic disease. This includes regular physical exams, office visits, vaccines, early screening diagnostics, consultations for proper nutrition, dental care, parasite prevention and more! Since they are not insurance, they do not include treatment for unpredictable or abnormal conditions, however discounts would apply.

Question:
Are the Preventive Healthcare Plans Insurance?
Answer:
No. We think they are better! Unlike insurance, where you pay for coverage you never use, our Preventive Healthcare Plans always provide the care we recommend to keep your pet healthy at a great value to you. They are affordably priced health care plans that can spread the cost conveniently over 12 months.

Answer:
Plan discounts apply to all non-plan services and all products except for therapeutic diets. These discounts vary with chosen plan.

Question:
What happens if I want to cancel my plan?
Answer:
Plan services are provided at deep discounts under an annual agreement. Agreements may be cancelled at any time. However, if an agreement is cancelled before the end of its term, the client is responsible for the remaining payments on the plan or the full retail value for services or discounts used under the plan less payments received (whichever is less).
