Seattle, Oct. 12, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

With the proliferation of big box store and non-pharmacy based pet pharmacy services, Trupanion (Nasdaq: TRUP) continues to stand apart from the rest of the pet medical insurance industry by encouraging pet owners to buy pet medications directly at their veterinary hospitals.

Clients with Trupanion-insured pets can fill their prescription at hospitals and get their claims paid immediately at checkout – the only company with the ability to pay accident and illness claims at the time of invoice, 24/7. For many pet owners that means they can leave the hospital worry-free with the medications their pet needs right away.

This market-leading and unrivaled level of client service is currently only possible through Trupanion. A leader in medical insurance for cats and dogs, Trupanion revolutionized the way pet owners are able to approach the costs of veterinary care by eliminating claim forms and reimbursements. Participating hospitals can send a claim to Trupanion with a click of a button – and within five minutes, the claim is paid directly.

“Our direct pay platform takes the worry out of your pet’s medical care,” said Dr. Steve Weinrauch, chief product officer at Trupanion. “You leave the hospital with your pet and the medications needed to help ensure their recovery. We’re the only pet medical insurance company in the industry offering this kind of service.”

With no lengthy approval and reimbursement process, pet owners can afford to pay for their veterinary bill, including prescriptions, immediately after the visit. There is no need for them to wait and order prescriptions from online pet pharmacies.

“When your pet is hurting, the last thing you need as a pet owner is hassle and billing complications,” said Darryl Rawlings, chief executive officer of Trupanion. “We want you to only concentrate on the recovery of your dog or cat.”
