Assure Yourself - Insure Your Pet!
Pet Assure is one of several mainstream pet insurance companies – although they are technically veterinary discounts, or as they say, “alternative” insurance! Pet Assurance is different from insurance in that – for a yearly fee of $99 – the company offers a 25% discount on most vet visits to vets within their network.
Their comparison page shows the specific differences between Assurance and Insurance. Namely, there are no forms, no waiting for your claim to be approved, and no deductibles. Another benefit is that dogs aren’t turned away for prior conditions, age, etc. In many cases, pet insurance companies won’t accept dogs over nine, or pets who have injuries or conditions.
Surgeries and spay/neuter procedures are all included and there are no maximum yearly benefits. Additionally, other pet products such as medications, lab work, and outside services may be discounted “at the veterinarian’s discretion,” or, they may be available at a discount from one of the companies participating retailers.
All-in-all not a bad deal, especially if you don’t want to deal with insurance paperwork or play the waiting game these companies sometimes force you to play! If you’re not concerned that you’ll need a higher deductible to be paid by an insurance company, a 25% discount sounds pretty good!
