May 4, 2011 - PRLog -- PHILADELPHIA (May 4, 2011) — Petplan, America’s top rated pet insurance provider, is no stranger to making history. The first in the industry to offer pet parents flexible, customizable policies with a choice of annual policy limit, deductible and co-pay amounts, and the first pet insurer in the United States to cover all hereditary conditions as standard, Petplan recently set a new company record. Over the past three years, Petplan has paid more than $25,000 in reimbursements to the pet parents of a mixed breed dog named Tigger in New Jersey.  Suffering from hip dysplasia, one of the most common hereditary conditions in dogs, Tigger has needed multiple surgeries, with single claims for treating this condition often exceeding $6,000.  

“This reimbursement highlights Petplan’s commitment to pet health,” says Dr. Jules Benson, Vice President of Veterinary Services at Petplan. “While many companies don’t insure hereditary conditions or have complicated restrictions, Petplan has offered simple, comprehensive coverage to American pet parents since its launch here in 2006. With hundreds of hereditary diseases that can affect our pets, it‘s critical for pet parents to evaluate the potential costs associated with properly treating such conditions when choosing a pet health insurance provider.”

Fortunately for Tigger’s parents, his paid claims won’t have any effect on the policy premium; once a pet is insured with Petplan, the premium will never increase due to claims activity, unlike some other insurers.

“Petplan is proud to offer this industry leading coverage to our pet parents as it gives our policyholders the peace of mind to know that both their pet’s well being – and their own financial well-being –  are protected for the life of their pet,” says Benson.
