Pet Health Insurance
Shippensburg Animal Hospital Can Help You Choose the Right Plan for Your Pet
Just like humans, pets can also become unexpectedly ill or injured; sometimes, they even get into and eat things they’re not supposed to. Often, these result in a costly unplanned vet visit. Pet insurance enables you to treat your pet without worrying about the cost. You simply bring your pet into one of our three office locations in Shippensburg or Carlisle, get them treated, fill out a claim form, and your pet insurance company will reimburse you.
Important Information to Know Before Selecting a Pet Insurance Plan
There are an overwhelming amount of pet insurance companies offering many different policies. To help you narrow down your options, we’ve compiled a list of important things to know before you make your decision.
The important things to know before you choose a pet insurance plan are:
- What is covered: While most pet insurance companies provide coverage for accidents, illnesses, and hereditary conditions, it’s important to see if they cover anything else your pet might need. For example, do they cover any dental cleanings or vaccinations? It’s important to ensure that the plan covers anything you might want your pet to receive.
- What the plan does not cover: It’s important to know what a plan doesn’t cover because you’ll be responsible for the entire cost of those services. Many providers will not reimburse you for routine examination fees or any treatment for pre-existing conditions.
- Whether the coverage is customizable: It’s important that you’re able to select certain factors of your plan, such as the deductible and annual limit, so that they meet your individual budget and financial needs.
- Whether they cover preventative care: While many plans only offer preventative care coverage at an additional cost, it is still an important option to consider. Preventative care coverage will enable you to be reimbursed for any check-ups, flea and tick prevention, vaccinations, and more.
