Bellevue, WA (PRWEB) May 06, 2014
Healthy Paws Pet Insurance, LLC (Healthy Paws) today announced it has entered into an agreement with MetLife (NYSE: MET) to provide the top-rated dog and cat health insurance to MetLife’s sponsored group members through its affinity marketing channel.
With spending on veterinary care rising again last year to over $14 billion, more pet owners are purchasing pet health insurance to protect themselves and their dogs and cats from the growing cost of pet medical care.
"We know how difficult it is to care for a sick or injured pet. Fortunately, advances in veterinary care are helping our cherished four-legged family members recover from serious illnesses and accidents,” said Rob Jackson, co-founder and CEO of Healthy Paws, “But with advances in veterinary care come rapidly rising veterinary costs. Healthy Paws Pet Insurance helps pet parents provide their dogs and cats the best medical care while protecting their hard-earned savings from the high cost of veterinary care.”
MetLife is enhancing the insurance portfolio available to sponsored groups with the addition of Healthy Paws Pet Insurance. The Healthy Paws pet health insurance plan, which is customizable, provides added peace of mind for the members of MetLife sponsored groups and their families and is the only pet insurance to offer unlimited lifetime benefits with an annual deductible.
“With over 60% of households having a least one pet, offering a quality pet health insurance plan from Healthy Paws meets a real need for our sponsored group members,” said James Galli, Vice President of U.S. Sponsored Direct Business at MetLife.
Healthy Paws Pet Insurance plan reimburses up to 90% of covered veterinary costs and provides comprehensive coverage for accidents and illnesses, including congenital and hereditary conditions. Healthy Paws’ customers also can visit any licensed veterinarian in the US—including emergency clinics and specialists.
