PET INSURANCE PROVIDERS

According to CONSUMER REPORTS (Should You Buy Pet Insurance?) the LARGEST pet insurance providers, which have about 84 percent of the pet insurance market in the U.S., are Nationwide, Trupanion, Petplan, and the ASPCA.

According to TODD NEMET, President of CARE for Pets™:

“Which Pet Insurance company you choose to protect your pet is very important. Over the last couple of years there have been many changes within the pet health insurance industry including some of the SMALLER insurance companies being acquired by a competing provider. In addition, many new providers (no track record on annual premium increases) have entered the pet insurance marketplace with very competitive premium prices. As they begin to pay claims, there annual premiums may SUBSTANTIALLY increase. Insurance companies do NOT cover PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS. If you decide to CHANGE PROVIDERS, your pets PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS may not be covered.”
