How Does Pet Insurance Differ From Human Health Insurance

As many pet owners consider pet insurance, it is natural for pet owners to compare their own experiences with human health care to pets. There are several differences between human health insurance and pet insurance.

There are few pets insured in the United States as compared to other countries. Approximately 1.5 to 2% of pets in the United States are covered by pet insurance. Other countries, such as the United Kingdom, have about 25% of pets insured; Sweden has about 50% of its pets insured.

Some experts believe that one of the reasons the United States has fewer covered pets is because they are less familiar with how pet insurance works and the value it provides.
