What Is Cat Insurance?

Rather than determining the course of treatment based on the family budget, cat health insurance allows you to determine the course of treatment based on what will be most effective for the health and happiness of your cat. Medical insurance for cats can give you peace of mind, and during such an emotional time, peace of mind is invaluable.

How Does It Work?

With Trupanion as your provider, you will be reimbursed 90% of covered veterinary costs for your cat. You pay the remaining 10%, as well as your monthly premium, examination fees and routine preventative care.

Trupanion is not in the business of cost containment, so you are reimbursed based on your actual veterinary bill and never use benefit fee schedules or ‘usual and customary’ payouts. You will receive 90% coverage for eligible expenses no matter which veterinarian, specialist, or emergency room you visit. No need to search for a specific hospital that offers treatment within a certain price point.

Trupanion cat insurance policies offer no limits per claim, per incident, or per year, and no lifetime payout limit. If you have an unlucky cat that has a lifetime of serious health issues, you will never see a cap on how much you will be reimbursed.
