It’s come to my attention that pet health insurance has been in the news lately, and I thought it would be a good idea to explore just what it covers.

Pet insurance works differently than human insurance and it is important to find out what is covered, because some insurance companies don’t pay for annual veterinary visits, vaccines, blood work, dental cleanings, or tick prevention.

For example, Nationwide Pet Insurance offers three levels of coverage, and you can customize a policy to suit your budget and needs.

The basic plan is the Pet Wellness Plan, and it covers wellness services as well as accidents. There is no annual deductible. All levels of insurance receive free 24/7 access to a veterinary professional via a help line.

The Major Medical Plan covers accidents, common and serious illnesses, some hereditary conditions (after a waiting period of one year), procedures, and services such as surgery and hospitalization related to an accident or illness. The annual deductible is $250.

The Whole Pet with Wellness Plan is a combination of the basic and major medical. It covers routine wellness services for your pet, major accidents, and illnesses. This plan reimburses 90 percent on your veterinary bill for covered services. The annual deductible is $250.   

There are other pet insurance options so it is wise to research plans according to your needs. You can check out prices and compare cost at caninejournal.com/petinsurance-comparison/

I can assure you there is a plan for your BFF.
