Yes. Human insurance won’t because you have to stay in your provider’s network. Vets don’t have networks. Mitten Heritage Fraternal Society of Insurance Berville, MI explains more about pet insurance.
Why Pet Insurance?
If your pet becomes ill or sustains an injury while visiting out of state, then you can use any licensed veterinarian, specialist, or emergency 24-hour clinic in the city you’re visiting. You’ll pay for the treatment up-front. The insurance company will reimburse you for covered claims. You should also know these things about pet insurance.
It’s About Healthcare
You’ll hear about pet travel insurance and pet health insurance. You want pet health insurance. The travel insurance is about your pet traveling in the truck to a client’s house. Furthermore, only commercial businesses can buy pet travel insurance (think K-9 units or pet boarders and groomers.)
Many people get traveler’s insurance when they go abroad. It usually covers health emergencies in other countries to a point. Also available is trip cancellation insurance for obvious reasons. None of this, however, pertains to pets.
If pets are going abroad with you, remember the quarantine they’ll have to endure before being deemed healthy enough not to hurt the natives. On the other hand, if it’s a service animal, you’ll have an easier time, although the travel and cancellation insurance still won’t pertain to the animal.
Fly Like An Eagle
Thinking of flying with your pet to visit Aunt Millie? Call the airline first. Your pet will require all kinds of paperwork, and that’s just before s/he can get a ticket.
