April 05, 2018

Wirecutter picks Trupanion for its value in comprehensive coverage, lifetime payouts, and customer service

SEATTLE, April 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Trupanion, a leader in medical insurance for cats and dogs, has received the top pick for “Best Pet Insurance” provider by Wirecutter, a leading product review website owned by The New York Times Company. Wirecutter reviewers spent dozens of hours researching, examining policies, and analyzing over 100 different quotes, and found that “Trupanion is the best choice for reliable and affordable pet insurance.”

Recognized for its straightforward coverage, unlimited annual and lifetime payouts, customer service ratings and transparency, Trupanion was found to have the best track record of offering a good value in its comprehensive coverage and benefits.

Wirecutter reviewers also noted Trupanion’s ability to pay veterinarians at the time of check out. This feature, which offers direct payment to thousands of hospitals across the U.S. and Canada, “makes it the only choice for anyone who can’t cover a large vet bill with savings or credit.”

This web-based application has revolutionized the way pet owners are able to approach the costs of veterinary care by removing claim forms and eliminating the reimbursement model. Trupanion is the only company with the technology to pay veterinarians directly in minutes at the time of checkout.

“For nearly two decades we have been dedicated to helping the pets we all love receive the best veterinary care and we are grateful to be recognized for the value we bring to our members,” said Darryl Rawlings, CEO and founder of Trupanion. “Our passion for pet health runs deep. At the core it’s about removing the barrier of the cost of care for pet owners for the life of their pet, while enabling veterinarians to provide the best care possible.”
