Some families may find that purchasing pet insurance is a an ideal option for handling unexpected medical expenses and other costs for their animal companions.
Typically, pet insurance plans are reimbursement-based, where you pay Eastside Animal Hospital up-front for the pet’s vet bills and then submit a claim to the insurance company. However, there are a few companies which helps keep your out-of-pocket payments low.
Usually, there's a deductible before coverage starts. For example, you might pay the first $500 in vet bills before the pet insurance starts to pay. Even after your deductible is paid, the pet insurance may not pay 100% of vet bills. Choosing a higher deductible can help to lowere your pet insurance bill. You can typically choose your reimbursement level. Common reimbursement options are 70%, 80% or 90% of your vet bills.
