Pet Insurance

Pet Insurance is a Healthcare policy for your furry friends. If a surprise accident or illness does hit, having an insurance plan can be a lifesaver. Unlike regular health insurance, you do have to pay out of pocket first. After you pay the vet, you can file a claim with your insurer to be reimbursed.

How Pet Insurance Works

It is common for Pet Insurance to have a waiting period between when you buy your policy and when illness coverage begins. For accident coverage, the waiting period is usually a few days. Insurers will require your pet to get a check-up before your coverage kicks in to establish any pre-existing conditions.

What You Need to Know

Deductible: The money you have to pay towards a bill (either per year or incident) before the insurer pays. Ranges from $0 to $1,000.
Reimbursement level: After the deductible is paid, the percentage of the bill that will be reimbursed by the insurer. Usually 50% through 100%.
Annual max: The maximum amount your insurer will pay in medical bills each year. Any charges incurred above the max will be paid out of pocket.

What’s Excluded

Standard pet insurance will cover most accidents and illnesses, but insurance providers will exclude some common things. Not all illnesses are covered by pet health insurance plans, so you should read the fine print before you buy. Here are the most common exclusions:

  • Dental disease
  • Pre-existing or hereditary conditions
  • Behavior issues
  • Routine check-ups, preventative care
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Grooming

Here are some factors about your pet that insurers use to calculate insurance premiums, apart from your coverage level:

  • Species. Dogs cost more to insure than cats, with male dogs having the highest premiums and female cats the lowest.
  • Breed. Larger pets generally cost more to insure because they tend to have shorter life spans and develop more health issues.
  • Age. Younger pets are cheaper to insure, as they usually have minimal health issues in their early years.
  • Location. Premiums vary according to state and zip code, with more densely populated areas carrying higher insurance costs.

Sheri Louthan

I needed medical insurance and discovered that Obamacare was unaffordable. I tried Dave Ramsey’s ELP program, and was contacted by Ross Insurance Brokers. I was able to reduce my medical, home, and auto insurance costs, and I was treated professionally in the process.
