Pet Assure and most pet insurance policies cover your pet for visits due to illness or injury. Insurance typically covers the visit and care as long as the illness is not the result of a pre-existing or hereditary condition. Pet Assure covers any and every visit, even if it’s a pre-existing condition or a condition due to hereditary factors.
Pet Assure covers all types of wellness care, including the office visit, vaccinations and routine screenings. Traditional pet insurance does not cover wellness care. Many pet insurance companies now offer a wellness option at additional cost.
Pet Assure covers treatment for every type of pre-existing condition. Regardless of your pets’ health, Pet Assure will cover them. If you have a Rottweiler prone to hip dysplasia, a Great Dane who has been diagnosed with Wobbler’s Syndrome, or a cat with urinary tract issues, treatment and procedures will be discounted with a Pet Assure plan. Pet insurance does not cover pre-existing conditions.
Pet Assure starts at less than $10/month and the price drops at least 50% for each additional pet. A good pet insurance policy is typically at least $35 a month. Some pet insurance companies will discount a second pet 5%-10%.
What Kind of Pets are Covered
With Pet Assure, you can get coverage for any type of pet. Dog, cat, ferret, bird, horse, llama, (you name it!), all at the same price as a dog or cat. Traditional pet insurance usually covers only dogs and cats. Older pets and many high-risk breeds are either not covered or are very expensive to insure. Select pet insurance companies have started to offer policies on pets other than dogs and cats.
With Pet Assure, you can use your card the day you enroll. Pet insurance plans typically require you to pass a waiting period before you get any coverage.
Pet insurance plans require you to meet a deductible before they will reimburse you for covered procedures. Pet Assure will cover you from your first dollar of veterinary care.
Pet Assure covers all pets, regardless of age. Senior pets are covered too.
Pet Assure prices are based on the total number of pets in your household. Pet insurance prices plans based on where you live, the type of pet, its age and health condition.
