Pet Insurance has been around for many years now but recently is has finally gotten more mainstream.
No longer do you have to search for a vet that will accept your insurance and then wait for approval.
Today, you can use any veterinarian and the pet insurance companies will reimburse you for your visit.
Nationwide Insurance now offers Reptile Pet Insurance that works the same way as dog and cat pet insurance.
You choose a policy, a reimbursement % and a deductible. They give you a monthly premium that starts as low as $5 a month for reptile pet insurance.
When you go to the vet you send the bill to Nationwide and they reimburse you for your visit.
This is a bit different than homeowners insurance, auto insurance or renters insurance.
You will have to pay the veterinarian bill out of your pocket, the insurance company will not deal directly with your vet.
They will only deal with you and send you the reimbursement money directly.
If you are a reptile breeder you may also want to consider getting business insurance.
