I just read the first chapter of a new book by Andy Andrews entitled "The Noticer." It is a book about an old man who finds people going through hard times and offers them advice. He "notices" things about their plot that they can't see and offers them a perspective that changes their attitude and ultimately their destiny.
You ask, "What does this have to do with pet insurance?" Well, nothing really except a line jumped out at me that is the inspiration of this post.
"Experience isn't the best teacher. Other people's experience is the best teacher."
If you are like me, before you buy almost anything of significance, you look at as many customer reviews as you can. Here you will read about the experiences of people who have actually purchased the product and/or dealt with the company. You will learn things by doing this that you won’t learn on the company’s website or even reading my book. I would advise you to not purchase a health insurance policy for your pet without looking at some reviews. Also, be sure to read the comments that follow the reviews. I found an excellent website to do this. Watch this short video.
When choosing a p et health insurance company, you are starting a relationship that you need to be comfortable with. Sometimes the service you receive and the trust factor is more important than the cost factor. Because pre-existing conditions are not covered by any insurance company, it is best if you make the right choice the first time rather than being dissatisfied and switching later to another company after you’ve filed several claims and your pet then has one or more conditions that won’t be covered.
