This article originally appeared on Embrace Pet Insurance Podcast:Experts talk Pet Insurance
It’s National Pet Insurance month and when you want to learn about all things pet insurance, you go to the experts. We’re still waiting for the day when Laura Bennett is asked to do a TEDtalk on pet insurance, but in the meantime, listen in as she and Dr. Patrick Mahaney answer your questions on everything from top claims to alternative therapies.
Laura shares with us:
- What is the (estimated) number or percentage of pet owners in the U.S. who have insurance for their pets?
- What are Embrace’s top canine and feline health claims?
- What are the main reasons pet owners give for establishing health insurance for their cats and dogs?
- Why should a pet owner get pet insurance (ability to have pet undergo diagnostics, treatment, etc.)?
- Does the typical pet owner keep their pet on Embrace insurance throughout the pet's life?
- Does Embrace cover any pre-existing conditions?
- Does Embrace cover complementary and alternative medicine (CAM), such as acupuncture, physical therapy, chiropractic, etc.?
And, Dr. Mahaney tells us what veterinarians think about pet insurance and how it has changed over recent years.
