Seattle-based pet insurer enters the Australian market

A Seattle-based medical insurance provider for cats and dogs in the US and Canada has launched in Australia.

Trupanion has made its first expansion outside of North America, with Stephen Rose, general manager and experienced veterinarian, leading the company into the Australian marketplace.

“We now have a product that allows pets to be treated the way they deserve and that takes away the stress and guess work for families trying to budget for their pet’s health needs,” Rose said. “With my 18 years in vet hospitals in Australia, seeing families torn in making emotional financial decisions was pretty hard. That is why I have designed one simple to understand plan with no payout limits, 90% co-pay of eligible claims and an end-to-end way to care for our members 24/7/365 – this is where the real difference will be, to be there when our members and their pets need us. Trupanion stands out alone, not only for the incredible benefits, but the way it can assess and pay a claim sometimes within minutes through the GapOnly platform.”

Trupanion Australia is a partnership between Trupanion and Hollard Insurance Company.
