Pet Assure is a veterinary discount plan that has been around since 1995. Pet Assure provides members with a 25% discount on all veterinary services right at the time of service. Well, Sick, and Emergency visits are included for all types of pets in all stages of health, and Pet Assure has virtually no exclusions. This makes it ideal for older pets with conditions that would not be covered by other pet insurance providers.
The simple answer is that Pet Assure covers anything and everything.
However, this begs some explaining.
Pet Assure is not an insurance policy, but a veterinary discount plan - the veterinarian gives you a discount right at the time of service. Your Pet Assure membership entitles you to a straight 25% off your pet’s medical bills when you use it at one of the program’s participating vets.
There are no limits or deductibles.
However, payout is limited to 25% of your total expenditure.
Pet Assure costs $79 a year for a single cat or other small animal and $99 a year for a dog or other large animal.
There is also a family plan, which covers up to four animals for $149 a year; and an unlimited plan, which covers every pet in your household for $199 a year.
All plans incur a processing fee of $5.00. However, you also have a 45-day money back guarantee.
There are no age limits. You can buy a Pet Assure membership at any age and your pet will be covered with no exclusions or conditions.
Pet Assure covers anything and everything, including pre-existing conditions.
The catch is that not all vets participate in the plan. You’ll have to find a vet that accepts it in order to benefit. You can find a list of participating vets by searching your zipcode on Pet Assure’s website.
Pet Assure’s 25% payout is low compared to insurance reimbursements, but may still be a great value for most pet owners. They’re affordable and have virtually no limits or exclusions. This makes them an ideal program if you have an older pet or a pet that suffers from conditions that are excluded by most other insurers, or if you can't afford to insure multiple pets.
