I read so many accounts of sharpei owners who need expensive medical procedures done for their dogs which can really cripple a family’s budget–so I wanted to share the below information regarding pet insurance. If you’re looking for a good pet insurance policy for your sharpei (or any pet for that matter), the below chart from Healthy Paws spells out the major differences between Healthy Paws and other providers. You may also wish to read our article which lists the various health problems common to sharpei, here.
What is Every Quote Gives Hope™?
Our pet passionate team has been fortunate to be on the front lines of rescuing animals, providing critical care, and then placing them in happy homes. From helping the injured pets found in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina to fostering an abandoned litter of puppies, we know that every homeless pet needs some medical care before having a chance at being adopted into a caring family.
Wanting to address this fundamental need of medical care, we created the Healthy Paws’ Every Quote Gives Hope™ program. The simple act of getting a pet insurance quote from Healthy Paws results in a donation towards a homeless pet’s medical care. We deliver that care by making cash grants to pet adoption organizations specifically for life-saving vaccines, spay/neuter surgeries, and advanced medical treatments. You can get your free pet insurance quote here.
How Much Does Pet Insurance Cost?
Healthy Paws premiums are calculated based on your individual pet’s breed, age and zip code.
- Cat health plans typically range from $15 and $35 per month.
- Dog health plans typically range from $25 and $45 per month.
It’s not complicated. We created a very affordable, comprehensive pet insurance plan and then backed it up with an unparalleled commitment to customer service. From a pet parent’s perspective, they clearly understand what is covered and what is not covered. They also love the fast claim reimbursements (often in 3 days or less) and compassionate interactions with the Healthy Paws team.
Below are some key differences between Healthy Paws and other pet health insurance providers.
|Benefit||Healthy Paws||Other Pet Insurance Companies|
|Coverage for expensive hereditary and congenital conditions?||Healthy Paws does not restrict coverage for hereditary and congenital conditions.||Many pet insurance companies exclude or limit expensive hereditary and congenital conditions.|
|Reimburse policyholder on the actual veterinary bill?||Yes. Healthy Paws pays on the actual veterinary bill.||Other companies will use a benefit schedule or use the term “usual and customary” which may substantially lower reimbursements to the pet parent.|
|Any plan limits?||Healthy Paws is the only company to offer unlimited lifetime benefits with an annual deductible. No caps on claims. Ever!||Most companies place per incident, per condition, annual or lifetime caps on claims. This lowers the reimbursement to the pet parent.|
|What do their customers say about their service?||We work hard to earn the #1 rating from pet parents on leading review sites. We’re committed to delivering the best pet insurance plan on the planet!||Other companies simply have complicated plans that make it difficult for their service reps to achieve our standard of customer service.|
