Enrollment of pets from birth delivers true lifelong coverage and eliminates concerns around pre-existing conditions
SEATTLE, Jan. 22, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Trupanion (TRUP), a leader in medical insurance for cats and dogs, announced today that it is removing minimum age restrictions within its policies – allowing puppies and kittens to be covered from birth. Expanding the age bracket to offer coverage from birth delivers on Trupanion’s promise of lifelong support and marks the beginning of the end of concerns around pre-existing conditions (injuries or illnesses that show signs before coverage begins) for future Trupanion members.
The best way to avoid facing issues with pre-existing conditions, which are not covered by any existing pet insurance providers, is to enroll a pet in a policy while they are young and healthy. The sooner they are enrolled, the more likely it is that any future injuries and illnesses are covered by the policy.
Trupanion’s expanded age bracket now enables pet owners to enroll cats and dogs from 0-7 weeks old throughout the U.S. and Canada. By offering pet owners the option to enroll their pets from day one, puppies and kittens will have coverage with as few pre-existing conditions as possible – expanding Trupanion’s coverage to more pets than ever before.
“By allowing baby pets to have coverage from day one, we are delivering on Trupanion’s promise to provide high-quality, lifelong coverage for cats and dogs,” said Dr. Steve Weinrauch, BVMS, MRCVS, Chief Product Officer, Trupanion. “Pet owners will no longer need to worry about the possibility of a condition arising before coverage begins, marking the first step towards eliminating pre-existing conditions from the vocabulary of the next generation of Trupanion members.”
In addition to greatly reducing the possibility of pre-existing conditions, Trupanion encourages members to enroll pets as puppies and kittens so they remain in that pricing category for the lifetime of the pet.
