Ok, I know this is a bit too general as each condition is different, but I want to know how vets work in terms of working out costs for treatment. Basically, if you suspect your cat is unwell do you go to the Vet who then treats the cat immediately, or do they tell you what is wrong and then you make a follow up appointment for treatment/investigation? My insurance company requires a pre-treatment code, and I am trying to work out when I would call them to get this code. Before I take them, or do I have a chance inbetween consultation and treatment, if the treatment is going to cost over the excess? With all those people with insurance, at what point do you inform the insurance company?
