Know Before You Buy
Here are 5 questions to ask any pet insurance provider.
1. How much does the plan cost?
Our entry level accident and illness plan on average costs about 30% less than similar plans offered by other providers.* If you hear promises of really high payouts elsewhere, look closely at the cost of the plan. Will you need to raise your deductible a significant amount just to afford it?
2. What will affect your reimbursements?
ASPCA Pet Health Insurance plans reimburse up to 90% of eligible charges from your actual veterinary bill.
Our reimbursements aren’t limited by a benefit schedule that restricts payouts to a fixed amount per
diagnosis. Also, our annual deductible only needs to be met once a plan year, unlike per incident
deductibles that reduce your reimbursement for every single injury or illness.
3. Is wellness coverage available?
Since wellness care is so important to keep your pets healthy, ASPCA Pet Health Insurance has two options for wellness care. For a little additional cost, you can cover your pet’s annual exams, many vaccines and tests, an annual dental cleaning, flea/heartworm medication and other treatments.
4. How much experience does the provider have?
The Hartville Group, which provides ASPCA Pet Health Insurance through its licensed agency, is one of the oldest and largest pet insurance providers in the US. We’re also the ASPCA®’s only strategic partner for pet insurance, and we have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.
5. Are plans easy to use?
We have a 1-page claim form that's easy to fill out, and it doesn't need to be signed by your veterinarian. You can also sign up to get your claim payments by direct deposit—saving you time and a trip to the bank.
