Seattle, WA (PRWEB) October 03, 2012
Trupanion, the second-largest and fastest growing pet insurance provider(1), today announced an expansion into Delaware effective immediately. Pet owners living in Delaware can now enroll their cats and dogs online at Trupanion.com or by phone at 800.569.7913.
Trupanion differentiates itself from other pet insurance companies in the industry by operating under a core set of values that places the health of the pet first. Trupanion offers lifetime coverage for dogs and cats with a 90 percent reimbursement rate and no payout limits per claim, per year, or over the lifetime of the pet(2). Trupanion’s policy is easy to understand and simple to use when the pet owner needs it most - at the time of care.
“Many pet owners today will do anything in their power to keep their pet healthy and happy for as long as possible, and we want to support their desire to do that,” said Darryl Rawlings, chief executive officer at Trupanion. “With pet insurance through Trupanion, those pet owners will be able to make veterinary treatment decisions based on what is the best option for their pet, not which option fits into their tight budget.”
Trupanion has been working to become approved by the Delaware Department of Insurance since expanding into the United States from Canada in 2008. Trupanion is now active in 49 states, the District of Columbia, as well as all Canadian provinces and Puerto Rico. The company anticipates being active in all 50 states (including New Hampshire) by early 2013.
Trupanion also offers a wealth of information on their website, including information on pet fire safety and deaf pets. Dog and cat owners who are interested in learning more about their own breed of pet can also visit breedguide.trupanion.com.
“As we expand into new states, we are able to meet the needs of more pet owners looking for financial peace of mind at a reasonable cost,” said Rawlings. “We offer a unique product that hasn’t been available to these pet owners in the past and we look forward to adding them to our family.”
