Pet Insurance & Payment Plans

When your pet is injured or ill, the last thing you want to worry about is how you will pay for their necessary treatment. For many pet owners, pet insurance and third-party payment plans offer some comfort and financial relief during those frightening times when decisions must be made quickly, and also during the less stressful times when you just want to be proactive about your pet’s general wellness.

What is pet insurance?

We all want the very best care for our pets, but as veterinary medicine advances, treatment costs rise, as well. Pet insurance will reimburse the owner of the insured pet in part or in total for the cost of certain veterinary treatments. Click on the article below for a summary of how pet insurance works:

What is Pet Insurance? by petMD

 

There are many pet insurance companies and plans available, allowing you to choose the one that is right for you and your pet. Policies vary from company to company, so it is important to research plan options before you commit. Below is a list of some of the better-known pet insurance companies with links to their websites to help you in your research.

SCVG hospitals accept most types of pet insurance, and we welcome you to ask us any questions you may have about your pet’s care and insurance options. SCVG is not affiliated with any of these companies and we are providing this list for your research convenience only. Your own research may find other insurance choices that better fit your needs.

What are third-party payment plans?

For the convenience of our clients, all SCVG hospitals accept multiple forms of payment, including cash, personal checks, debit, MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and American Express. 

But sometimes you might need a little extra help, which is when a third-party veterinary payment plan may be a good financial option for you. These are companies that extend a line of credit for a specific purpose, such as veterinary bills, allowing you to pay for the expense over a period of time with special financing options, after they pay the veterinary hospital. 

SCVG hospitals accept two forms of third-party payment plans, listed here with links to the companies to aid you in your research. If you have any questions about how using a plan like this might help you and your pet, please feel free to call the hospital and we will be happy to answer your questions. We also encourage you to review the company websites and plans thoroughly, and contact the company directly with specific plan-related questions. 

Again, SCVG is not affiliated with either of these companies and we are providing this list for your research convenience only. You should research all options carefully before committing to a third-party payment plan.
