People sometimes laugh at the prospect of insuring a pet as a kind of extravagance. But when you love a pet as much as most people do, an unexpected illness or accident can force you into incredibly hard situations.
For peace of mind and not a lot of money, pet insurance may be worth checking out. Here are a few things to keep in mind:
To enroll, puppies and kittens must be six to ten weeks old at a minimum. Many insurers cut off first-time enrollment when your pet reaches 10 to 14 years of age.
Pet insurance coverage varies. Some plans cover only emergencies and accidents, while other more comprehensive plans cover cancer, congenital and hereditary conditions, and other chronic diseases.
Most pet insurance plans don’t cover pre-existing conditions or wellness visits like annual exams or teeth cleaning.
Depending on your pet’s age and breed, where you live, and the level of coverage you select, the cost of pet insurance ranges from $10 to $60 per month.
Pet insurance plans work by reimbursing you for a percentage of the treatment costs. You choose your reimbursement level when you purchase the policy, such as 70%, 80%, or 90%.
