No. We think they are better! Unlike insurance, where you pay for coverage you never use, Pet Connection Wellness Plans always provide the care your veterinarian recommends to keep your pet healthy at a great value to you. They are affordably priced health care plans that spread the cost conveniently over 12 months. See our comparison chart below for more details.
|Pet Connection Wellness Plans||Insurance Plans|
|Intended for preventive care use||Generally only covers treatment for illness and injury|
|Services may ALWAYS be used||Used only if there is a “covered occurrence”|
|Include free office visits and discounts on other Pet Connection services||Does not cover any pre-existing conditions|
|Fees same for all pets in species, no deductibles or waiting periods (prices vary by market)||Monthly premiums vary based on breed, age (some breeds excluded)|
|More like a “discount membership” with free finance option||Indemnity property coverage after deductible is met|
Your wellness plan can be made more affordable by spreading the cost with a monthly payment option under an annual agreement. Payment is arranged as 12 automatic monthly payments or one annual payment.
Plan discounts apply to all non-wellness plan Pet Connection services.
Plan services are provided at deep discounts under an annual agreement. Agreements may be cancelled at any time. However, if an agreement is cancelled before the end of its term, the client is responsible for the remaining payments on the plan or the full retail value for services or discounts used under the plan less payments received (whichever is less).
