Pet insurance won't cover costs for any condition that your pet showed signs of before the start date of the policy. (Medical records or a vet exam might be required to establish your pet's health). But, pet insurance will cover new conditions and accidents. Also, all the pet insurance plans here will cover conditions that your pet might have been born with but haven't showed up yet. These are called hereditary or congenital conditions. So it's still important to get covered!

Pet Insurance in Massachusetts

You can’t predict what will happen to your pet but you can be prepared. In the event of an illness or accident, pet insurance allows you to focus on what is important—caring for your sick or injured pet rather than having to deal with the financial burden that often comes with health care. When shopping for pet insurance, it is important to understand the specific risks to your pets in Massachusetts. Some area specific risks which can be covered with pet insurance include:

◦   Extreme weather
◦   Parasites that transmit infectious diseases like ticks
◦   The active, outdoor lifestyle in Massachusetts brings added risks and health problems
◦   Tornadoes

Pet insurance can help protect your dog or cat from accidents and illnesses like the conditions mentioned above and provide you with the peace of mind in knowing that you are prepared to provide them with the health care they need. Massachusetts pet insurance plans are flexible, designed to meet you and your pet’s individual needs and will typically cover costs associated with accidents and illnesses.

In addition to accident and illness coverage, pet owners in Massachusetts may also want to consider a wellness plan. Some of the most common health conditions among dogs and cats in Massachusetts, as mentioned above, are Lyme disease, dental tartar, and periodontal disease. These conditions are preventable with routine dental cleanings, tick control, and vaccinations and a wellness plan can cover these costs.
