Trupanion coverage: for the lifetime of your pet *
What you can expect with your Trupanion coverage *
As a new pet owner, it can be difficult to know exactly what will be needed for your new pet. Naturally, we know baby pets like puppies and kittens can be a bit unpredictable in terms of behavior, accidents, and getting into things they shouldn’t. Additionally, pets at all stages are curious by nature, and that is why we are here for those unexpected moments in life. Essentially, there is no way to know if your pet will become diagnosed with allergies, cancer, or arthritis, but you can prepare by having medical insurance coverage for pets in case they do.
For example, in regards to the Trupanion policy, we are here for those unexpected injuries and accidents. Further, we offer lifetime coverage for illnesses and medical conditions, as well as the treatment, surgeries, hospitalization, and medications associated with that lifetime medical condition.
Trupanion coverage: what the policy does not cover(direct policy exclusions)*
The Trupanion policy has some distinct direct policy exclusions, that we will not provide coverage for. Essentially, Trupanion coverage is there, for those unexpected circumstances, such as accidents and illnesses that happen throughout a pet’s life. Rather, the direct policy exclusions are things you can prepare, budget, and plan for your pet’s expenses as part of being a responsible pet owner.
Although we place value and importance on wellness and routine care for your pets, it is something that you can plan for as part of your budget and pet’s needs. For instance, a round of vaccines and flea preventative are incredibly important but are an expectation as part of bringing a new pet home.
Here is a full list of wellness/preventative items we do not cover as part of our Trupanion coverage-
If wellness is something you are wanting for your pet, we highly recommend working with your vet on their recommendations. Wellness plansare helpful, and they provide important supplemental support for your pet’s well-being, growth development, and care.
Rather, we don’t consider wellness insurance, and Trupanion coverage is a policy for accidents and illnesses.
If a pet is showing signs of any illness, injury, or condition prior to becoming a member and joining the Trupanion family, unfortunately, we will not be able to extend coverage to the condition. Furthermore, this is an industry standard across the pet industry in regards to medical insurance for pets. With that being said, once you enroll within a Trupanion policy, and go through standard waiting periods, non-related conditions that might take place throughout the pet’s lifetime are eligible to review.
