ChaseHealthAdvance and Pets Best Insurance Team up to Give Pets a Chance at Healthy Full Lives

Posted on August 18, 2009 under Pet Health & Safety

When pet owners are deciding on treatments for their pets, oftentimes cost can be a deciding factor. ChaseHealthAdvance, part of Chase Card Services, of division of JPMorgan Chase & Co., and Pets Best have teamed up so more people can afford to keep their pets healthy throughout their entire lifetime.

ChasHealthAdvance helps cover expenses for pets without insurance or treatments not covered by insurance – such as pre-existing conditions. Pet owners can have 3 to 24 months no interest payment plans or extended payment plans with interest to help make treatment for their pets more affordable.

“I think everyone is feeling the strain due to our economy and is being careful in terms of how they are managing their financial situation,” said Barry Trexler, senior vice president, ChaseHealthAdvance. “Now more than ever is when financing can play a positive role in enabling pet owners to get the necessary care for their pets. Instead of being confronted with a bill that requires them to pay all of it up front, pet owners have the opportunity to pay it over time.”

Jack Stephens, DVM and co-founder of Pets Best Insurance, started the pet insurance industry after he noticed that pet owners often had to base their pet care decisions on economics.

“That motivated me to work towards taking economics out of the decision to provide comprehensive pet care,” said Dr. Stephens. “Our alliance with ChaseHealthAdvance means we can help more pet owners with those unexpected veterinary costs. Together we simply want to help more pet owners in financial need today in the hopes that they will see the value of pet health insurance for future veterinary care tomorrow.”

ChaseHealthAdvance is conveniently offered by veterinarians throughout the United States. Ask your veterinarian for more information or visit
