Trupanion Adds Insurance Benefits for Therapeutic Pet Food Consumption

Posted: Dec. 5, 2011, 7:20 p.m. EST

Hill's pet food covered by insurance
Pet insurance company Trupanion added benefits for therapeutic pet food and veterinary-exclusive Hill's Science Diet Healthy Advantage to its insurance policies for cats and dogs, Trupanion reported today.

The insurance covers half the cost of therapeutic pet foods for two months, followed by a discount on the monthly insurance premium for continued feeding of therapeutic pet food. The company also started offering premium discounts for owners who feed their pets Hill's Science Diet Healthy Advantage.

According to Trupanion founder and CEO Darryl Rawlings, the Seattle-based company is lowering premiums for policy holders who continue to feed Hill’s therapeutic pet foods to their pets because it leads to a better outcome from an actuarial standpoint. He said the amount of the premium reduction will vary based on the animal and the condition.

Veterinary healthcare teams can find out more information about the program through their Trupanion Territory Partner or by calling 1-800-569-7913, then pressing #1.

I think it is important to point out that the Trupanion Pet Health Insurance Policy dated 08/11 provides therapeutic diet coverage for ANY therapeutic diet recommended by a veterinarian. The benefit is not restricted to diets manufactured only by Hill's.
