ASPCA Pet Health Insurance For Horses Now Available

Crum & Forster Pet Insurance GroupTM has launched its first-ever insurance plans exclusively for companion horses. 

The idea to launch equine health insurance stemmed from the discovery of a growing trend among horse owners to view their horses as companions or family members rather than property. The provider of ASPCA Pet Health Insurance, Crum & Forster Pet Health Insurance Group™, has been offering health insurance for other four-legged family members and companions, dogs and cats, for 20 years through its licensed agency, C&F Insurance Agency, Inc. 

All other equine health insurance plans currently in the market must be purchased in conjunction with equine mortality or loss of use insurance, and many of these plans also require that the horse meet a certain minimum purchase value. In a time when the perspective on horse ownership is changing and other insurance companies are still basing the need for equine health insurance and eligibility for enrollment on a horse’s property value, we saw a great opportunity to introduce a new product to the market.   

ASPCA Pet Health Insurance plans for horses are stand-alone, health-insurance-only plans, meaning the purchase of mortality insurance is not required to enroll, and the amount paid for a horse is not a determinant in their eligibility to be insured, making the plans fitting for any companion horse. 

Pet health insurance helps pet parents say yes to their veterinarian’s recommendations. Equine health insurance can benefit horse owners and their horses in the same way that dog and cat insurance benefits pet parents and their furry family members. ASPCA Pet Health Insurance for horses is designed to lessen concern about the costs of veterinary care so that horse owners can focus on getting their horse the care they need.  

Horse owners have the opportunity to select one of two plan options to best fit their individual horses’ needs. One of the plans, Colic + Accidents, includes coverage for the exam fees, diagnostics, and treatment of colic episodes and injuries and emergencies related to accidents, such as trailer-accident injuries, hoof abscesses, and toxic ingestions. 

The second option horse owners can choose is Colic + Accidents + Illnesses. It covers the costs of exam fees, diagnostics, and treatment of colic episodes, accidents, and illnesses – from minor illnesses like the common cold to major illnesses like cancer. Hereditary and congenital conditions are also included in the plan’s illness coverage.

When enrolling in an ASPCA Pet Health Insurance plan, horse owners can choose from a range of deductible, coverage limit, and reimbursement percentage options.  The ability to customize plans makes it even easier to find a plan that fits every horse owner’s budget.

  • Deductible options of $100, $250, and $500 are available. ASPCA Pet Health Insurance plan deductibles are annual, so a customer only has to meet it once in a 12-month policy period. 
  • Horse owners can also select an annual coverage limit of $3,000, $5,000, $7,000, or $10,000. The coverage limits for ASPCA Pet Health Insurance plans reset every year. 
  • The reimbursement percentage choices are 90 percent, 80 percent, and 70 percent of eligible veterinary costs.  

For a little more per month, horse owners can add one of three preventive care coverage options – Routine Preventive Care, Advanced Preventive Care, and Platinum Preventive Care. Reimbursements for covered preventive services are based on scheduled amounts. Covered preventive services include dental floating, annual wellness exams, a rabies or tetanus vaccination, and other things that help protect horses from getting sick. 

Caring for a horse can take a lot of time.  With ASPCA Pet Heath Insurance, quoting, enrolling, and submitting claims is quick and easy.  And when you spend less time keeping your horse its healthiest, you and your horse can spend more time together doing what you both love!

Don’t forget — horse owners who enroll in an ASPCA Pet Health Insurance equine plan can have their dogs and cats on the same account when they enroll them too!
