Pet Insurance Comparison
Most pet insurance plans have a few basic things in common. You usually select a reimbursement level and deductible at sign-up. When your pet needs medical care, you can visit any licensed veterinarian you choose. You pay your vet first, then file a claim with your pet insurance company. The insurance company then reimburses you based on the details of your policy.
There are some substantial differences between insurance providers that can impact your coverage or how much you get reimbursed after a veterinary visit.
Some of the most important differences are:
- Coverage. Look closely at coverage and exclusions. For example, congenital and hereditary conditions are very expensive to treat and must be covered.
- Deductibles. Annual deductibles typically pay out more during a policy year than per incident deductibles. You just have to meet one annual deductible, not a deductible for every incident.
- Reimbursement Method. Not all pet insurance companies pay on the actual veterinary bill. Beware of benefit schedules or "Usual and Customary" policy language, as it may lower your reimbursement amounts.
- Claim Limits. Are claim limits applied per incident, per year, or over the pet’s lifetime? Healthy Paws has no limits on claims, ever!
- Customer Service. It’s all about service once the policy is purchased. What are pet parents saying about their care and claims experience with a company?

Pet insurance reimburses the pet parent after treatment.
- The pet parent takes their pet to their favorite veterinarian when sick or injured.
- The pet parent pays the veterinarian at time of treatment.
- The pet parent submits a claim to Healthy Paws.
- Healthy Paws sends the reimbursement check directly to the pet parent within 3-10 days.
Some pet insurance companies offer wellness coverage at an additional cost or incorporate it into one of their myriad of plans. When an insurance company reimburses for “expected” treatments like an annual exam, typically they will restrict coverage or payouts on the more important and higher cost accidents and illnesses to give this perceived benefit of wellness coverage.
Insurance is about protecting yourself from the unexpected. Auto insurance pays for that unexpected car collision or home insurance covers the unexpected water damage or fire. These do not cover expected maintenance. If they did, premiums would be quite expensive!
Pet insurance therefore should be about protecting you and your pet when they are sick or injured. Unlike wellness care, these are the conditions you cannot plan for in advance and can easily cost in the thousands of dollars. After all, no one wants to be faced with skipping an important treatment for their pet or, worse case, euthanizing their pet simply because they cannot afford veterinary care.
Healthy Paws premiums are calculated based on your individual pet’s breed, age and zip code.
- Cat health plans typically range from $15 and $35 per month.
- Dog health plans typically range from $25 and $45 per month.
