Practices can now set up immediate veterinary cover (IVC) online via Petplan, removing the need to rely on the post.
Appointed representative practices can issue four weeks’ free insurance using the IVC tool, found on Petplan’s website. It provides immediate cover for illness and injury, and can be issued to puppies, kittens and rabbits aged six weeks to one year, following a veterinary health check.
Petplan says it is quick and easy to activate online and there is no obligation for the client to buy a full policy; regardless, conversion rates are high.
Petplan has been training practice staff on the new system, with positive feedback – more than 60% of practices now activate cover online.
Michelle Agius from Llanrumney Vets4Pets in Cardiff says the new process is “quicker, easier and a real time saver”.
