Pet insurance plans work similarly to human medicine. You’ll have a monthly premium, a deductible, and will be covered for any care your pet receives that falls under your plan. One big difference between pet insurance and human medicine is that your pet insurance company will not pay the vet directly. It’s up to you to make the initial payment at the time services are rendered and then file a claim with your insurance company to be reimbursed.

The best time to enroll your pet is when they are still a puppy or kitten. You’ll have lower premiums and also avoid any lack of coverage for pre-existing conditions. Many plans cover emergencies as well as unexpected illnesses, and others also cover wellness and preventive care. It’s important that you thoroughly research all your options in order to find the best one for you and your pet!
