What Is Dog Insurance
Dog health insurance helps protect you from unexpected veterinary expenses and ongoing medical treatments that arise when your dog becomes sick or injured. Whether your dog has several minor incidents or develops a serious medical condition like cancer, veterinary costs can quickly add up and cause serious strain on your budget.
Rather than determining the course of treatment based on how much you can afford to pay in veterinary care, medical insurance for dogs allows you to determine the course of treatment based on what will be most effective for the health and happiness of your dog.
With dog medical insurance, you can rest assured that your dog will be taken care of so that you will never have to make a difficult decision regarding your dog’s health.
How Does It Work?
After enrolling with Trupanion, you will be reimbursed 90% of covered healthcare expenses for your dog. You pay the remaining 10%, as well as your monthly premium, examination fees and routine preventative care.
We do not believe a pet insurance company should try to contain the cost of veterinary care, so you are reimbursed based on your actual veterinary bill and never use benefit fee schedules or ‘usual and customary’ payouts. This means you can visit any veterinarian, specialist, or emergency room and be reimbursed the same. No need to search for a specific veterinarian who would treat your pet within a certain price point.
With Trupanion, there are also no limits per claim, per incident, or per year, and no lifetime payout limit. If you have an unlucky pet that has a lifetime of serious health conditions or ongoing care, you will never see a cap on how much you will be reimbursed.
