Which dental insurance plans are the best for dogs?
With the Affordable Care Act’s rollout underway, the topic of dog health care has emerged as a major issue for Americans.
As a dog’s health has become a hot-button issue for many Americans, health insurance plans for dogs are getting an overhaul, with plans from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota, UnitedHealthcare, and UnitedHealthCare Blue hitting the market in the coming months.
In the past, dog health insurance has required you to pay a deductible or pay out-of-pocket costs.
That can lead to higher costs for consumers, and many have become frustrated with the deductibles and out-pocket limits.
The new Blue Cross plans come with no deductible and no out-pacing or co-pays, which will give consumers greater flexibility in paying their medical bills for dogs.
While many dog owners may not want to sign up for a dog insurance plan, many have also come to believe that their pet is more reliable and less prone to getting sick.
According to research from the National Pet Health Association, dogs can handle more medications and procedures than people and that their behavior can be used to determine if there is a problem.
With more access to quality dog health coverage, there is less pressure on people to purchase their own health insurance, which means more people can afford to shop around for a quality dog insurance policy.
In order to ensure your dog insurance is the right choice for you, it’s important to look into the options for dog health and wellness.
