Did you know pet insurance covered this?
Pet health insurance is an increasingly valuable option for pet owners as the treatment options available to pets increase with the availability of new procedures, medications and therapies. Unfortunately, the unexpected and often cumulative expenses that come with treating our pets, can be a serious deterrent. Pet insurance can often lessen the financial barrier for pet owners.
As veterinary medicine makes advances, so does pet insurance. Pet owners can use the coverage to see any veterinarian, including specialists and emergency services without concern about "networks". Pre-existing conditions are generally not covered but if your pet becomes sick while on a pet insurance policy, the provider can provide reimbursement for things like cruciate surgery, MRIs, chemotherapy and radiation, and emergency hospitalization. There are even some plans that can include your pet's preventative care costs.
What many people don't realize that is that most pet insurance plans will also cover integrative therapies such as acupuncture, physical therapy, massage and range of motion. The American Association of Rehabilitation Veterinarians (AARV) has complied the coverage of these services from several pet insurance providers for easy comparison.
There are several options available with pet insurance. It is important to compare several plans and carefully read the provisions of each plan before deciding which is best for your pet. The North American Pet Health Insurance Association (NAPHIA) website has information about choosing and purchasing pet health insurance.
