Pet insurance is coverage designed to provide pet owners with financial protection for veterinary care and various related medical costs. By helping you deal with unexpected costs, pet insurance puts you in a better position to make decisions about your pet’s medical care without putting cost first.
Pet insurance from Pets Plus Us provides coverage to treat eligible accidents and injuries such as fractures, lacerations or swallowing foreign objects. Insurance plans that also include illness coverage can cover common ailments such as digestive issues, allergies, cancer and infections. These policies include the cost of the diagnostics and treatments associated with the eligible accidents or illnesses.
Most pet insurance plans do not include coverage for routine, preventative or wellness treatments. Examples of excluded treatments include spaying and neutering, annual checkups, vaccinations, flea and tick control, heartworm medication, ear cleaning and microchipping or dental care. That is why Pets Plus Us offers the option to add on Flex Care coverage to the Accident & Illness plan. It can cover annual checkups, vaccinations and more.
The premium for pet insurance depends on the type and amount of coverage you choose, the type of pet you have, and the cost of veterinary care in your area.
You can enrol your pet in a Pets Plus Us plan any time after they have reached eight weeks of age. There are no upper age limits for new enrolments with Pets Plus Us, though pets over a certain age are required to complete some Senior Requirements
