How does a vehicle repair plan work?
If you experience a vehicle breakdown, head straight to your preferred ASE-certified service provider or schedule a repair through our partner, RepairPal at repairpal.com/olive.
Let the repair facility know you have olive® coverage prior to starting repairs. The repair facility will contact the administrator’s claims office to file a claim and report their diagnosis and submit a repair estimate.
Once a claim determination has been made by the administrator, simply pay your deductible and any non-covered expenses, and the administrator will cover the rest! Learn more at olive.com/how-to-file-a-claim.
