premium increases

Out of 10

I find the frequent premium increases and changing terms of policy to be unreasonable. From a starting premium of 38.80/month, I am now at 67.05/month.I have had to cancel my policy. I am sorry I invested in this insurance and would not recommend it to anyone.I find it difficult to believe this is not due to pets increasing age or number of claims made.

I am with vetinsurance myself for my 3 cats.I enrolled my kitten for $19 and they guranteed me that the premium would never go up during his lifetime.Within a year they raised it to $ 26 for my kitten.

Yellrdawg, pay attention to where you are responding- if you look, then you'll know which insurance they are complaining about. That is all.

Premiums are determined by the local costs of veterinary medicine, the breed of your pet, and its age at the time of enrollment (which allows each pet owner to have the best value for their specific pet). We assure you that your premiums won’t increase nor will your coverage be restricted due to your pet aging or the number of claims made. Your rates will change periodically (up OR down) only as inflation affects the cost of veterinary care. Trupanion/Vetinsurance never penalizes responsible pet owners for having unlucky pets. This means your rates won’t increase and your coverage won’t decrease after you submit claims.
