Trupanion promises "unlimited" coverage, which can come at a higher price than other types of plans. However, it may not be worth the extra cost, especially when the veterinary exam fee is excluded on all claims. See how deductible and premium choices could affect the value of "unlimited" plans.

We designed ASPCA Pet Health Insurance to give pet parents the right amount of coverage at the right price. In fact, our accident and illness plans can cost as much as 30% less than others, but only about 0.5% of our customers even hit their plan's coverage limit.+ Would a more expensive plan be worth the extra cost?

The type of deductible also can play a major role in your reimbursements.
