This morning a reporter for Puerto Rico’s Caribbean Business published an article on Trupanion’s expansion into Puerto Rico. This is a huge announcement, as Trupanion is the only pet insurance company to expand into the unincorporated territory, giving these pet owners the opportunity to protect their pets – and their wallets – against unexpected accidents and illnesses.
Local pet lover Alberto Castaner, who was quoted in the article, worked for a few years to find a pet insurance company to expand into his territory and Trupanion was happy to oblige. Once the program was in place, Castaner signed on to be the exclusive territory partner for the area, helping veterinarians and pet owners provide the high quality of care that pets deserve.
With a Trupanion policy, Puerto Rican pet owners will have 90% coverage and no payout limits when their pets become sick or injured.
“Currently, we are in the process of providing orientation to local veterinarians so they will know what their clients are talking about and how to process the claims,” Castanar is quoted as saying. “So far, vets’ responses have been extremely positive.”
