Pet Insurance Claims  Pet Insurance Claims

We understand that your pets are a part of the family. So we've simplified our claims process to ensure that you receive your benefit as quickly as possible.

Please note: for each claim you should attach the relevant vet consultation notes for the condition you are claiming for.

To request a pre-approval

If your Pet requires Treatment and you wish to seek pre-approval of those costs, you can provide us with the itemised estimate of costs from your Vet, along with the treatment required and relevant clinical records and/or veterinary history, and we will respond to you in writing with the outcome. 

A pre-approval shall not be deemed to be valid unless we have agreed to it in writing. The reimbursed amount may vary from the pre-approval if the Treatment provided by your Vet differs from the Treatment request in the pre-approval. 

To request a pre-approval:

There are many ways to claim

Option 1 - Claiming made easy through your Vet

Through your Woolworths Pet Insurance policy you can claim with GapOnly™ at any participating Vet clinic in Australia, which means your Vet can submit your eligible claim for you on the spot so you only pay the gap (or amount not covered by your policy).

By claiming with GapOnly™ you can enjoy faster access to your pet insurance benefit, less upfront expense on eligible claims, and no claims paperwork to manage - it’s all sorted in-clinic by your Vet.

To learn more about GapOnly™ or find your closest partner Vet click here.

Alternatively, your Vet may be able to submit an electronic pet insurance claim on your behalf after you’ve paid your invoice (sometimes referred to as an eClaim)

We will still communicate with you regarding the status of your claim and you will still need to pay for the Vet expenses upfront.

For more information about how claims are handled, please refer to ‘Section 9 – Claims’ of your Product Disclosure Statement.

Option 2 - Make a claim online

You can also claim online through your MyPet Portal. Simply upload a copy of the itemised invoice and the consultation notes from your vet visit.
