Pet Health Insurance
Our pets seem to have a way of getting into trouble.Whether your British shorthair is an amazing acrobat (except when she isn't) or your labrador thinks dirty socks are a delectable delicacy, accidents and injuries can happen when you least expect them. This makes them quite difficult to plan for financially.
And it isn't just accidents that can strike unexpectedly. Illnesses such as gastroenteritis, bladder stones, diabetes, and kidney disease can all be an unwelcome, and costly, surprise. Pet health insurance provides peace of mind knowing you won't face future vet bills alone.
How does it work?
Pet insurance differs from human health insurance:
- You pay your veterinarian upfront
- You'll be reimbursed a percentage of your vet bill based on the details of your plan
- You choose any licensed veterinarian, including specialists and emergency clinics
Coverage typically includes reimbursement for:
- Emergency visits
- Lab tests
Find the plan that's right for your family.
Some plans cover just accident and illness and offer a lower monthly payment. Other plans provide more extensive coverage, even reimbursing you for regular veterinary care such as vaccines and neutering. It's important that you understand your plan and what it covers thoroughly. Whichever plan you choose, we recommend locking in insurance while your pet is in good health, as pre-existing conditions won't be covered.
What isn't covered?
All insurance plans have some exclusions and we wanted to include some information about that as well. Below is a list of common pet insurance exclusions.
Be sure to check with any plan you are considering to see which of the following they will or will not cover.
