Choosing the Best Pet Insurance Plan for You & Your Pet

There are many different pet insurance plans out there, making choosing the right one for you and your pet a little overwhelming! Luckily, we’re here to help and have gathered some important tips to help you decide on the right plan:

Choose your coverage wisely. Pet insurance plans can cover a range of different services. Many cover only emergencies and unexpected illnesses, while others cover preventive care services, too. Consider your pet’s health, their propensity to get into trouble, as well as your budget to determine which one is the best fit for you.

Determine what kind of reimbursement works best for you. There are two common ways pet insurance companies reimburse you. Either they reimburse you with a percentage of the invoice for your pet’s care or they give you a scheduled allowance which provides a certain reimbursement amount over a certain timeframe.

Be aware of what is and isn’t covered. Every insurance policy will have slightly different stipulations for their scope of coverage. Be sure to carefully review your policy so you fully understand what is and isn’t covered. Many plans do not cover pre-existing, hereditary, congenital, or conditions related to breeding.

Get onboard with pet insurance early on. The best time to enroll your pet in an insurance plan is when they are young and healthy. This will ensure you get the lowest premiums and your pet will have no pre-existing conditions. Yet, even if your pet is older, it can still be a good idea to enroll your pet in order to cover any unexpected costs that could result from old age conditions.
