Frequently Asked Questions About Pet Insurance

Pet insurance helps cover the cost of medical care should your pet become ill or have an accident.

Pet insurance is best used for unexpected medical events that are difficult to predict and budget for.

Pet insurance can be used for routine procedures (vaccines, teeth cleaning, heartworm tests, etc).

*Be careful that the premiums you pay are less expensive than your out of pocket cost.

It is a reimbursement program, you pay the bill up front and you file a claim with the pet insurance company. The insurance company is the party that will reimburse you.

The plan should have good medical coverage (covers accidents, injury, and illness). Check for coverage for chronic disease, continual coverage of chronic disease, coverage for hereditary and congenial disease, and coverage for diseases that are common to your pet’s breed.
