What You Need to Know About Pet Insurance
At Heart + Paw, we know unplanned medical expenses can happen. We also know that pet insurance can help you cover those unplanned expenses and make your life easier. That’s why we want you to focus on the fun part of parenthood and not stress about unplanned medical bills or being unable to get essential care for your pet.
What is Pet Insurance and How Does It Work?
Pet insurance is similar to human health insurance. It makes it easier for you to manage your pet’s medical costs and anticipate unexpected emergencies, which can often be expensive. When you invest in a pet insurance plan, you protect your pet by ensuring they are able to receive the care they need. You also protect your budget and peace of mind, and don’t have to stress about covering all your pet’s treatment costs. There are many pet insurance options available with premiums and deductibles to suit your specific circumstances.
Pet Insurance Providers
If you would like to learn about different pet insurance providers on the market, here are three examples to help you get started!
Fetch by The Dodo is a pet insurance company that offers comprehensive coverage for dogs and cats. With a policy from Fetch, you can visit any licensed vet in the U.S. or Canada and get reimbursed for up to 90% of covered costs after you meet the deductible. You can make claims using the app or website and be paid in as little as two days by direct deposit.
As a Heart + Paw client, you will receive 10% off for the life of your pet when signing up for a Fetch policy.
Trupanion offers both dog insurance and cat insurance. With Trupanion, all customers receive one simple plan that covers all unexpected injuries, illnesses, accidents, and medical conditions, including breed-specific conditions, making it clear what’s covered and what’s not. Trupanion reimburses customers for 90% of their vet bills without payout limits once they’ve met their deductibles.
Pumpkin is a pet care company offering pet insurance for accidents and illnesses plus an optional Preventative Essentials Pack that can pay you back for annual wellness exam fees, key vaccines, and lab tests each year. Their Preventative Essentials Pack is not insurance, but an optional benefit you can easily add to your plan if you want refunds for wellness care.
