New Vet Pet Insurance Available for New Yorkers

August 28, 2003

Veterinary Pet Insurance, based in Brea CA, announced that two new insurance plans are now available to “help New York pet owners with the ever-increasing costs of veterinary care.”

“The VPI Superior Plan increases the benefits and coverage for many medical problems and conditions in dogs and cats,” said the announcement. “The VPI Avian & Exotic Plan, covering birds and a variety of exotic pets such as reptiles, rabbits and guinea pigs, is available in New York for the first time.”

VPI’s Rebecca Lewis, vice president of marketing and communications, noted, “Pet owners want the best treatments available when their pets become ill or injured, but sophisticated treatments can be costly. The new VPI policies offer higher benefits that will help New Yorkers pay for the care their pets need, We are also excited to be the first to offer health insurance coverage for the state’s birds and exotic pets.”

The announcement described the plan as offering increased “benefit payouts for many conditions and treatments such as radiation, chemotherapy and anesthesia.” It also said the policy “offers coverage for illnesses and injuries common to birds and exotic pets. Several optional riders are also available. The Vaccination & Routine Care Coverage rider helps keep pets healthy by assisting with the cost of an annual exam, vaccinations, spay or neuter, prescription flea control and heartworm testing with no deductible. The Cancer rider further protects pets that develop cancer by doubling the benefit payout for cancer treatments.”
