If you haven’t heard any buzz about pet insurance yet, chances are you’ll be hearing more in the near future. In recent years, pet medical insurance has been growing rapidly in the United States.
Did you know that over 30% of pets in the U.K. have pet medical insurance? While 65% of U.S. Households include at least one pet, only 2% of those pets are insured today. That’s changing quickly due to advancements in pet medicine. In fact, in the past five years, the U.S. pet insurance industry has doubled in size.
Neckerman Insurance has partnered with Auto-Owners Insurance and FIGO Pet Insurance to offer pet insurance to those in our community. FIGO covers examinations, diagnostics and lab tests, surgery, treatments, hospitalization and prescription medications for accidents/injuries and illnesses. In addition, they offer chronic diseases coverage and continual coverage for chronic conditions as long as the condition is not pre-existing and has not occurred during the waiting period.
It can become financially difficult for many people if their pet is injured or faces an unexpected illness. Pet Insurance offers peace of mind to pet parents. Pet health insurance starts around $20 a month depending on the breed and other factors. By purchasing FIGO Pet Insurance through Neckerman Insurance, you’ll receive a special discount.
Once your pet is insured, you’ll have access to FIGO’s revolutionary pet portal. FIGO is technology friendly and the first cloud-based pet insurance company. This means policyholders will be able to do everything from their smartphone or electronic device such as access customer service, file claims, store all of your pet’s records and find pet friendly businesses.
