ARTICLES OF INTEREST
Central Hospital For Veterinary Medicine believes that pet insurance is an excellent option and can greatly enhance the care you provide your beloved companion. It has become increasingly popular. Having pet insurance can eliminate some of the stress that comes with needing to make a decision about your pet’s care by limiting the financial impact it may have on your family’s budget. Currently, all pet insurance plans are general reimbursement plans meaning you pay the hospital bill and the insurance company reimburses you once the claim is filed. We are always available to help you organize your claims.
