Seattle, WA, June 28, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Trupanion implemented and announced a 'No Payout Limits' change to its policy less than a month ago and has already had a policyholder take advantage of this new benefit. Trupanion’s receipt of a pet insurance
claim for skin medication from policyholder Cathy Tunis took the payout on the policy for Madelaine, a French Bulldog, over the former lifetime payout limit of $20,000. Because Trupanion removed this limit, Ms. Tunis is able to continue with the necessary veterinary treatments for her dog without having to worry about costs.
Madelaine (Maddie, for short) has been enrolled with Trupanion (then Vetinsurance) for almost five years, since she was only 6 months old. During this time, she has experienced a profusion of health problems, including bronchitis, skin issues, urinary tract issues, and chronic allergies.
"We are very grateful that Trupanion changed to an unlimited lifetime coverage for pet insurance," said Tunis. "I knew that Maddie was getting close to the old limit of $20,000 but I didn’t realize how close."
