What Does it Cover
PetPartners offer both accident-only and accident and illness plans. The accident-only plan covers only conditions that stem from an accident. The accident and illness plan covers surgeries, diagnostic tests, hospitalizations, allergies, prescription medications, behavioral problems, and alternative care such as holistic treatments.
Insurance Plans & Pricing
PetPartners offers a lot of customization options for its plans, so estimating pricing can be tricky. It’s important to note that pet insurance premiums are based on the breed of the dog or cat and their home zip code, among other factors. Policies are underwritten by PetPartners’ partners at the Independence American Insurance Company, and in WA, the American Pet Insurance Company.
For a 3-year-old labrador retriever, basic accident and illness coverage with a $1,000 deductible, 70% reimbursement rate, and $2,500 coverage limit costs $23.02 per month. For the same pet, coverage with a $100 deductible, 90% reimbursement rate, and unlimited coverage costs $81.17 per month. These rates are based on a New Jersey zip code.
You can also add upgrades to your plan for additional coverage. For example, reimbursement for exam fees costs $5 per month and reimbursement for euthanasia and burial fees costs $2 per month. Preventative care plans start at $17 per month without dental coverage or $29 per month with dental coverage.
Depending on your state, PetPartners gives you the option to cancel your coverage and receive your money back within 30 days of signing up, as long as you have not submitted a claim.
What is Not Covered
The accidents and illness plan does not cover preventative care, exam fees, pre-existing conditions, congenital conditions, or hereditary conditions. You can add coverage for exam fees and preventive care when selecting your plan options, but you will need to contact PetPartners for a rider if you want to cover hereditary or congenital conditions.
It’s also important to note that PetPartners only offers accident and illness plans for pets under 9 years old. Once your pet turns 9, any existing illness coverage will be terminated.
PetPartners offers policies with a waiting period of 2 days for accidents, 14 days for illnesses, and 180 days for cruciate ligament conditions.
You can customize your coverage limit when choosing your plan. Coverage limits range from $2,500 to unlimited.
Reimbursement and deductibles:
You can choose a reimbursement rate from 70% to 90%. You can also choose a $100, $250, $300, $400, $500, $600, $750, or $1,000 deductible.
