Prices climb by age if pup and loopholes

Out of 10

My dog has been covered by Pets Best since I got her as a puppy.The monthly price has increased 100%. + in 7 years.
I'm paying for wellness and vet care and they keep changing the deductible and what they cover. Although I pay for wellness they deny coverage for parasites! No heart worm coverage, no giardia coverage , no flea coverage! Dogs die from heart worm disease yet they won't cover it?
My dog has had very few claims and yet they charge over 125/mo for my dog! I wonder where to turn?!

Hi Anne,
Thank you for being a loyal customer for 7 plus years. We recently expanded what our plans cover, by removing the exclusions and limitations for congenital and hereditary conditions. This did result in an increase in some premiums, while other premiums saw little to no change. The pet insurance industry analyzes claims related to pet age, species, breed, geographic location, and also factors in general inflation. When taken together, these factors predict the likelihood of a pet to need veterinary care, as well as the likely cost of that veterinary care. It’s important to note: our prices are not based on your personal claims filing history, and we don’t reduce or cancel coverage based on your pet’s age.

Coverage for flea, tick and heartworm preventative care is included with our optional BestWellness plan. We have many options for lowering your rates. Please give us a call and we would be glad to discuss your benefits and rates with you.
