Pets Best Insures 100,000th Pet




(PRESS RELEASE) BOISE, ID – Pets Best announces that it has officially provided insurance to 100,000 pets. In addition, Pets Best has processed over 1 million claims as of April.

“This milestone comes at such an exciting time for Pets Best, and our industry as a whole,” said Pets Best President Chris Middleton. “From the first to our 100,000th, each and every pet in our Pets Best family simply means the world to us. We are thrilled that Pets Best has remained an industry authority, matching the exponential growth the pet insurance industry has made in the past few years. As we continue to grow and insure the next 100,000+ pets, providing excellent customer service and offering plans that fit every pet, and every budget will remain our core focus.”

Pets Best is celebrating this major achievement throughout the month. It kicked off the celebration with an internal appreciation party. It’s also celebrating with its local Boise community with the announcement of a donation-matching fundraiser in support of The Idaho Humane Society. Pets Best is now raising money to match up to a $1,000 donation through its Facebook page

In April, NAPHIA, the North American Pet Health Insurance Association, announced a new report stating that pet insurance is now a $1 billion industry. This was a special benchmark for Pets Best because its founder, Dr. Jack Stephens, launched the pet insurance industry in the U.S. and wrote the first policy in 1981. Stephens brought together over 900 veterinarians to create the first pet insurance company in the U.S. and is known as the “father” of pet insurance in North America. In 2005 he went on to co-found Pets Best by introducing innovations in online enrollment and claims processing and a more customer-friendly reimbursement model that is now the industry norm.

At first it was just an idea: Animal supplements needed the same quality control that human-grade supplements receive. But that was enough to start a movement and an organization —the National Animal Supplement Council — that would be dedicated to establishing a comprehensive path forward for the animal supplements industry. In this Media Spotlight interview, NASC’s president, Bill Bookout, talks to PETS+ interviewer Chloe DiVita about the industry today: Where it’s headed, what’s the latest focus and why it’s vital to gain the involvement of independent pet product retailers.
