Family Pet Animal Hospital recommends health insurance for your pet. Just like with human health insurance policies, pet insurance helps provide owners with peace of mind if an accident or illness should occur. Although pet health insurance does not cover existing conditions, it will cover the veterinary medical costs for your pet if unexpected accidents and illnesses that may occur after enrollment. After treatment, the insurance company will require that you submit your paid invoice along with an insurance claim form to be reimbursed at the rate determined by the insurance company. There is no extra change for being referred to a specialist or visiting an emergency clinic, and some companies will also provide discounts for supplements and therapeutic diets.
For more information and comparisons of different pet insurance companies, Pet Insurance Review offers a wealth of information. In addition, Family Pet offers these handouts to help you decide the best ways to manage the cost of keeping your pets healthy and giving them the best quality of life for as long as possible:
