Like health insurance, pet insurance can be quite helpful for any unexpected trips to the veterinary hospital. Some plans even help with preventative care, so if you are considering getting insurance, you need to weigh your options. Look into multiple companies and see what they have to offer so you can find the right plan for you and your pets. If you are confused about the whole process, be sure to contact us, and we can help.
Here at Crestwood Animal Hospital, we also accept CareCredit, a credit card that can be used at many veterinary clinics. Many dental offices also accept CareCredit. CareCredit has several different payment options, allowing owners to give their pets the veterinary care they deserve without worrying about the cost. It gives owners the option to spread their payments out over a few months so veterinary care is more affordable.
If you need to discuss our payment options, don’t hesitate to contact us at (502) 241-4117. We would be happy to discuss the many payment options available for you.
Pet insurance pays, partly or in total, for veterinary treatment of the insured person’s ill or injured pet. Some policies will pay out when the pet dies, or if it is lost or stolen.
As veterinary medicine is increasingly employing expensive medical techniques and drugs, and owners have higher expectations for their pet’s health care and standard of living than previously, the market for pet insurance has increased.
Pet insurance companies are beginning to offer the pet owner more of an ability to customize their coverage by allowing them to choose their own level of deductible or co-insurance. This allows the pet owner to control their monthly premium and choose the level of coverage that suits them the best.
Some of the differences in insurance coverage are:
- Whether congenital and hereditary conditions (like hip dysplasia, heart defects, eye cataracts or diabetes) are covered;
- How the reimbursement is calculated (based on the actual vet bill, a benefit schedule or usual and customary rates);
- Whether the deductible is on a per-incident or an annual basis;
- Whether there are any limits or caps applied (per incident, per year, age or over the pet’s lifetime); and
- Whether there is an annual contract that determines anything diagnosed in the previous year of coverage is considered pre-existing the next year.
