NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa., Sept. 18, 2018
NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa., Sept. 18, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) and Petplan pet insurance are delighted to announce the launch of the AAHA Pet Health Insurance Program, offered by Petplan. Providing industry-leading illness and injury coverage for dogs and cats, the AAHA Pet Health Insurance Program offered by Petplan is now available to participating AAHA-accredited veterinary practices and their clients in the U.S. and Canada.
AAHA has long made it their mission to advance the standard of veterinary excellence across the profession. As the only organization that accredits veterinary hospitals throughout the U.S. and Canada, AAHA sets the standard for quality veterinary care for companion animals. With the launch of the AAHA Pet Health Insurance Program offered by Petplan, the organization is working to mitigate stress in the veterinary hospital by helping pet owners manage the cost of care for their pets, and by helping veterinarians practice their best medicine without budgetary constraints.
"When it comes to providing the best care for patients, a pet owner's economic limitations can add stress to the equation," said AAHA Chief Executive Officer, Michael Cavanaugh, DVM, DABVP (Emeritus). "Pet health insurance is important because it offers pet owners and practice teams another way to manage the cost of veterinary care and help pets get the care they need. At the end of the day, this helps reduce strain in the veterinary practice while simultaneously increasing pets' access to care."
One key benefit of this new collaboration is an offer on Petplan pet insurance policies available to AAHA-accredited practices and their clients. In addition, Petplan provides a dedicated information hotline for all AAHA-accredited hospitals and clients so they can reach a Petplan service representative any time, day or night.
"At Petplan, we want to help ensure that veterinarians are able to give pets the care they need," says Steve Shell, co-CEO of Petplan. "In launching this new collaboration, we're giving veterinary hospital teams the tools their clients need to understand the importance of pet insurance, and we're providing a special offer to help the AAHA Pet Health Insurance Program offered by Petplan fit every budget. It's our goal to ensure that more pets have worry-free illness and injury coverage from the start."
More than 1.5 million pets worldwide are covered by the Petplan brand, which is widely considered to be a top innovator in the pet insurance industry. Staffed with almost 200 dedicated pet lovers, the company strives to ensure healthier, longer lives for pets and peace of mind for their people. Policies for the AAHA Pet Health Insurance Program offered by Petplan will provide the same standard of worry-free protection.
Petplan has built an industry-leading pet insurance policy for pet parents who demand a higher pedigree of care for their best friends. We've leveraged 40 years of global experience to create completely customizable coverage pet parents can feel confident in, and world-class claims service that operates 24 hours a day, every day.
