It’s our strong belief that lifelong pet insurance is an excellent way to limit the financial hardship that can be associated with unexpected pet care expenses. Pet insurance provides peace of mind in the event of accidents or illnesses – it relieves a significant amount of the stress so that you can focus on getting your pet back to their best health.
There are a wide variety of pet insurance providers available, and we encourage you to evaluate the available options. However, in our experience, Trupanion provides the best value for most pet owners. Unlike many other providers, they offer:
- Direct payments (meaning no pre-payment and waiting for reimbursement)
- 90% coverage on eligible conditions
- 24/7 customer service
- Flexible plans tailored to your budget
- Lifetime deductibles and no payout limits
- Coverage for many conditions including congenital and hereditary conditions
For exotic pets like rabbits, birds, and lizards, we recommend Nationwide Pet Insurance (They’re currently the only option for exotic pets, but they’re a good one!)
Any questions about your pet’s coverage should be directed to your pet’s insurance company. We cannot answer questions about your pet’s coverage or provide guarantees of coverage. This is one of the many reasons we like Trupanion, though – they make this process quick and simple. They can even provide answers based on treatment plans (estimates) before care is provided.
Pet insurance does not cover routine, wellness focused care. However, we have options available for that as well — wellness plans.
