PostHeaderIcon Kroger Personal Finance Adds Accident Coverage for your Pet

A dog is one thing that I have always had since I moved away from home. I of course missed my family so having a four legged friend helped out. My pets are like my children. I know that a lot of people do not feel that way, which saddens me, but I would do the same for Autumn as I would if one of my boys got sick. Many years ago I looked into Pet Health Insurance. All I have to say is OUCH on the price. Almost as expensive as human insurance! Needless to say I never bought it.

To most of the nation’s 70 million pet owners, pets are family too. And when pets get sick or injured, most of us are willing to spend almost whatever it takes to get them back on all four feet.  But the price of veterinary care does not come cheap, as a matter of fact, according to the American Pet Products Association (APPA) vet bills last year in the U.S. topped $11 billion!

There are times when things happen that are beyond our control. One of the kids leave the gate open, you have a dog who is a digger or just that pesky little one that you love so much but ALWAYS finds a way out. Wouldn’t you like to know you could get affordable help if god forbid something happened to them?

To control costs, more pet owners than ever are signing up for pet health insurance plans.  Pet insurance industry experts say the offering has become so popular they expect pet premiums to top $328 million by year’s end.

Kroger Personal Finance® (KPF), a Kroger joint venture that brings together a wide array of quality financial products and services from preferred providers for Kroger customers, is making pet health insurance information available in the check lanes of more than 2,400 supermarkets operated by Kroger, the nation’s largest traditional grocery store operator.

“Kroger shoppers include pet owners and non-pet owners alike,” Kathy Kelly, president of Kroger Personal Finance said.  “With 62 percent of U.S. households owning a pet – and 70 percent of those with multiple pets, affordable pet insurance can help pet owners manage their expenses.  It can cover everything from routine costs associated with veterinary expenses like annual check-ups and vaccinations all the way to surgeries, x-rays and hospitalization.”

The newest product offered by KPF is its lowest priced – an “accident only” policy for $9.95 per month per pet.

Today, pet health insurance can cover accidents and illnesses, as well as routine care for dogs and/or cats.  Depending on the coverage level and the number of pets insured, prices can range from $9.95 to $79.00 per month.  The range of service covered by the premiums, as Kelly describes it, is nearly as broad as procedures covered by human insurance.

To pet owners, the appeal of insurance comes down to peace of mind, and hopefully not having to explore the limits of unconditional love.

“By paying monthly premiums there is no need to worry about suddenly struggling to come up with unbudgeted veterinary expenses down the road,” Kelly added.  “It allows pets to receive expert care and helps their human families manage costs, now for less than 40¢ a day.”
