We’ve just learned that Trupanion™ Pet Insurance is now covering all the Hill’s® Prescription Diet® and Science Diet® Healthy Advantage™ pet foods as part of their insurance coverage! As we’ve written about before, our cat Felix is on Hill’s Prescription Diet food...and our dogs are covered by Trupanion (unfortunately Felix was already up in years when we discovered pet insurance)…so this news item really caught our attention!
What It Covers: The insurance covers half the cost of therapeutic pet foods including Hill’s Prescription Diet pet foods for two months followed by a discount on the monthly insurance premium for continued feeding of the therapeutic pet food, available exclusively through veterinary hospitals. Veterinary healthcare teams can find out more about the program through their Trupanion Territory Partner or by calling 1-800-569-7913 (then pressing #1).
Trupanion’s dog and cat policies offer one simple plan with 90 percent coverage and no annual, per claim, or lifetime payout limit. With a veterinary physical exam, Trupanion also offers a 30-day “no obligation” trial for pet owners, giving them time to decide if the plan fits their needs and budget. The 30 Day Trial waives typical waiting periods so coverage is effective immediately.
Disclosure: We are not paid by Trupanion and we don’t receive any discount…they don’t even know that we have their insurance; we just wanted to offer this news to our readers.
