    Default How to have this conversation with insurance company....

    My gelding was just diagnosed (via genetic testing) with PSSM and has been exhibiting symptoms for a few months. Not knowing what the heck was going on and not having an official diagnosis or treatment plan, I just rode it out.

    Now that he is technically diagnosed, but not treated (it's dietary only) should I be calling insurance to let them know? I only have mortality with $3000 for colic surgery. He is insured for $8000.00 in value as he is just my pleasure horse.

    Any experiences?

    Do you have loss of use coverage? You can start by talking to your agent first. They can answer some questions without going to the carrier.

    Loss of use coverage can be pretty expensive and now you've got a pre-existing condition. Talking to the agent is a good idea. You can also review your policy and see what it says regarding such situations; you may not have to tell them now, but will likely have to tell them when you renew.

    Good Luck.
