USAA Pet Insurance
More than 44% of American households have a dog and 35% have a cat. That’s a lot of animals who become part of our families at a time when pet health care is rising as fast as the health care plans for people. These rising costs explain why pet insurance has become an important component of planning for life’s unexpected expenses. Jennie MacNaughton from USAA explains how pet insurance works and the different kinds of coverage that are available.
It’s important to know that any serious illness or injury can take a financial toll, even when the patient is a pet. Cancer treatments can easily run $5,000; surgery to fix a torn ACL from, say, a poorly executed jump off the sofa can cost about $3,300. Discover how pet insurance is sold with the promise that by helping to cover some of your pet’s medical bills, you won’t be forced to consider “economic euthanasia” in the direst circumstances.
