The enrollment date is the date you purchase your pet insurance policy. The enrollment date is important because it starts the waiting period, which is the time between enrollment and the effective date.

The effective date is the first day when coverage begins. Most companies have separate waiting periods for accidents, illnesses, hereditary and orthopedic conditions.
