September is National Pet Insurance Month, and that’s great. We appreciate anything that helps more pets get the veterinary care they need! But Trupanion isn’t just ordinary “pet insurance.” We’re medical insurance for cats and dogs.
What’s the difference? We’re so glad you asked…
The difference between pet insurance and medical insurance for pets
Pet insurance providers offer coverage with limits that reset every year, annual renewals, and multiple exclusions. Worst of all? You have to navigate a list of confusing tiers and plans, each one just a little different.
Reimbursement is the traditional model and what most providers offer. If you are really in need of help for unexpected veterinary bills, how helpful is it to pay upfront and wait by the mailbox for reimbursement?
Providers can have waiting periods up to six or even 12 months for certain conditions to be covered.
Five days for injuries, 30 days for illnesses. Or skip the wait entirely with our Exam Day Offers. Live in Florida? You get a single 12 day waiting period that can also be waived with an Exam Day Offer.

Marissa knows almost every dog's name in the Trupanion office and is working on learning their owners' names. She is a lover of all animals but has a special place in her heart for anything with a long snout - she could spend all day watching videos of elephants, aardvarks, and tapirs. When not at work you can probably find her watching a soccer game, making short videos or searching for the greatest sandwich in Seattle.
