Trupanion Explores the Benefits of a No-Deductible Pet Insurance Plan

Trupanion Explores the Benefits of a No-Deductible Pet Insurance Plan
Seattle, WA, May 24, 2010 --( Pet insurance company Trupanion reminds pet owners of the benefits of pet insurance with a zero dollar deductible.

Pet health insurance company Trupanion provides customers with the option of selecting a zero dollar deductible for their pet insurance policy. Pet owners who choose this option do not have to pay a deductible for any claimable vet bill. As people become more deliberate in their spending habits, this approach seems to gain appeal: approximately 84% of the claims Trupanion paid over the past week were for pets whose policies had a zero dollar deductible.

Many purchasers of pet insurance choose a zero deductible because they seek to minimize the financial variables of responsible pet ownership. The cost of their monthly premiums is a known factor, so their sole exposure to an unexpected veterinary expense will be ten percent of the actual cost of claimable treatment. (Trupanion covers 90% of the actual vet bill.)

Trupanion is currently the only pet insurance provider in the United States and Canada that offers a zero deductible option. Along with the choice of no deductible, Trupanion allows the pet owner to select any deductible from 50 dollars to 1,000 dollars. A higher deductible reflects a lower monthly premium, and vice versa. By paying slightly higher monthly premiums, pet owners are responsible for a much smaller overall portion of their vet bills.
