How does Prudent Pet Insurance work?
Prudent Pet Insurance offers custom insurance coverage for your dog or cat that covers up to 90% of veterinary costs. Customers pay a monthly fee for coverage that works with any licensed veterinarian. If you’re interested in signing up for a Prudent Pet Insurance policy, visit its website and provide your pet's name, breed, age and sex to get an accurate idea of how much your policy costs.
With Prudent Pet, pet owners choose their reimbursement percentage, annual limit and deductible when signing up for a policy.
If you have to take your pet to the veterinarian, you can easily submit a claim by sending your vet receipt along with Prudent Pet’s claim form by email, fax or the company’s online pet portal. Prudent Pet reimburses policyholders by check or direct deposit.
Prudent Pet Insurance plans
Prudent Pet Insurance has two plans and optional coverage add-ons. The two core plans are:
- Accident and illness coverage
- Accident-only coverage
Coverage officially begins 14 days after you sign up for a Prudent Pet Insurance policy. However, neither of Prudent Pet’s plans covers cosmetic changes, preexisting conditions or costs related to breeding or pregnancy.
For comprehensive care, you can sign up for Prudent Pet’s preventive add-on coverage, which gives you complete care options regardless of whether you’ve met your deductible. Preventive add-on coverage comes in two levels.
- Basic, which includes seven preventive benefits like dental cleaning, deworming and wellness exams
- Prime has 12 preventive benefits that include everything from the basic plan plus urinalysis, blood testing and flea and heartworm prevention
How much does Prudent Pet Insurance cost?
Prudent Pet Insurance has multiple plans you can customize based on your budget and your pet’s needs. The cost of Prudent Pet Insurance varies based on your pet's age and what breed of dog or cat you have. We used a 3-year-old Australian shepherd mix named Mosby to get an idea of the monthly cost for Prudent Pet’s insurance:
- Accident and Illness plan: With a deductible of $250, a $10,000 coverage limit and 90% reimbursement, Mosby's policy costs $57.68 a month. This plan covers accidents, illnesses, behavioral issues and hereditary and congenital conditions.
- Accident-only plan: With 90% reimbursement, a $250 deductible and a $10,000 coverage limit, Mosby's AccidentOnly policy would cost $28.19 per month. This plan only covers injuries resulting from accidents that occur after you enroll.
Preventive add-ons for a Prudent Pet Insurance policy cost an extra $9.95 a month for the Basic level or an extra $24.95 a month for the Prime level.
