Pet cancer is the most expensive medical condition in pets. Just as with humans, cancer develops in many pets and is very costly to diagnose and treat. And while it can strike at any age, cancer is much more likely to develop in older pets.
Thirty years ago, it wasn’t common to treat cancer in pets. But little by little, pet owners began to choose treatment and see that their pets’ quality of life could be restored. Today, more pet owners choose to treat their pets when cancer strikes. Diagnosing and treating cancer is costly, but in many cases, treatment can outright cure cancer and certainly extend a pet’s life.
About Our New Cancer Plan
Accident and illness insurance plans offered by Pets Best insurance have always covered cancer. So why did we start offering a Cancer Only policy that covers any malignant cancer in pets?
The answer is simple: You asked for it! After talking to pet owners, we determined that some pet owners only wanted cancer coverage, perhaps for an older pet or breed more prone to cancer. In addition, they wanted extra cancer coverage they could add to their basic plans. Our Cancer Only plans are unique in that they can be purchased alone or added to a BestBenefit plan for extra cancer coverage, for about $7 per month.
Our Cancer Only plan coverage includes malignant cancers, such as lymphoma, leukemia and mast cell tumors. Reimbursement is available up to $8,000 per year and $30,000 over the life of your pet.
Lumps, bumps and benign growths aren’t covered, but if your pet develops a malignant cancer, this plan will cover expensive diagnostics like MRIs, as well as well as exams, blood work, surgeries, medications and chemotherapy, whether performed by your veterinarian and or a specialist. In fact, veterinary cancer specialists – oncologists – are increasing in numbers and accessibility for our pets. The care and treatment is expensive, but our Cancer Only plan can provide affordable peace of mind. You’ll know even the best veterinary care won’t be out of reach when your pet needs it most.
