ASPCA Pet Health Insurance
vs. VPI

Like VPI, we have a lot of experience offering pet insurance. In fact, we're the second oldest and second largest pet insurance provider in the US behind VPI.

Example Monthly Cost*
ASPCA Pet Health Insurance Veterinary Pet Insurance
Level 2:
$32.22
Medical Plan:
$25.88

* Based on mixed breed dog under age 1 in zip 11215 as of 4/17/14; using reasonably comparable plans, including co-insurance and deductible amounts where available.

However, we're the first to not use a benefit schedule to determine reimbursements as VPI has done throughout its history. Every provider to enter the market after us has followed our lead and not used a benefit schedule. A benefit schedule sets a fixed payout amount per diagnosis, and the amount doesn't change for individual pets' treatment circumstances or geographic costs. ASPCA Pet Health Insurance reimbursements are based on the actual treatments performed, not the diagnosis.
