When your pet gets sick or injured, the last thing you want to think about is how much it will cost.
Pet insurance helps protect you from that financial burden and makes sure you can focus on getting the best care possible for your companion. Whether your pet has several minor incidents or develops a serious medical condition like cancer, pet insurance shields your budget from unexpected, expensive veterinary costs.
Knowing that your pet’s healthcare is covered allows you to determine the best course of treatment based on what will be most effective for the health and happiness of your family cat and/or dog (not the size of your wallet).
With pet medical insurance, your furry friend will be taken care of.
How does pet insurance work?
Like insurance for humans, deductibles, copayments, premiums, and coverage can vary widely between the different pet policies and companies. The biggest difference between pet insurance and human insurance: You typically have to pay your veterinary bill in full and wait for the insurance company to reimburse you, although, some pet insurance companies will now pay the veterinary hospital directly, which decreases your upfront out-of-pocket costs.
With affordable premiums that don’t increase due to your pet aging, low deductibles and copays, and easy-to-understand (and use) coverage that doesn’t leave you in a bind, you can rest easy knowing you’ll have coverage when you — and your pet — need it most.
