Why Compare Pet Health Insurance Plans

It doesn’t matter if you have already decided to purchase health insurance for the family pet or if you are simply shopping for one. When you are comparing the quote of one health insurance quote to another, remember that the base dollar amount is not the only number you have to consider. In addition to the monthly payment, make sure you also check out exactly what type of veterinary care and treatments are covered (some basic insurance plans do not include cancer treatment), what kind of deductible you, the pet owner, will be expected to pay, is there a yearly cap on medical expenses, and what type of discounts are available. At the moment there are only a handful of companies that offer pet health insurance.
